|Just when you thought you’ve seen the latest from BMW Malaysia, out pops the 4 Series Coupe; the BMW 420i Coupe. At the recent Malaysian Open, BMW had introduced the 2 Series Coupe, along with the 428i Convertible. (click to enlarge)|
The 2-door BMW 420i Coupé has an attractive pricing of RM 299,800.00 (not inclusive of insurance) to appease Coupe and the vast BMW enthusiasts in the country. With a silhouette that appears even lower and more elongated than the previous generation 3 Series Coupé, the 420i Coupe is visibly sportier with visual cues of the BMW 4 Series – typical BMW short overhangs, long wheelbase, and a cabin that is offset towards the rear, in addition to its low and flowing roofline as well as exposed low windows inside frameless doors.

Another identifying feature of the 420i Coupé which underlines its dynamic convictions are the Air Breathers, positioned rearwards of the front wheel arches; much like its direct sibling the 220i Coupe. Standard Star-spoke 17-inch wheels complete the Coupe’s profile. With the optional Sports Line package, you get 18″ double-spoke wheels, mirror caps and exterior items.
Its interior offering incorporates Leather Dakota upholstery with an interior Satin Silver Matt trim, plus an ergonomic cockpit design and sports leather steering. A 6.5-inch screen works in tandem with the BMW Radio Professional and 9-speaker HiFi system. With Sports Line package, you get BMW Individual Anthracite, high-gloss Black and Coral Red Matt trims, sports seats, and the steering with gearshift paddles.
A 2.0-liter twin-scroll 4-cylinder engine, paired to an 8-speed sports transmission, offers 184 hp and 270 of torque which enables a 0 – 100 km/dash in 7,3 seconds and a top of speed up to 236 km/h. Average fuel economy and emissions are rated 6.0l/100km and 139 g/km. With ECO Pro mode, fuel efficiency extends even further. BMW claims Eco Pro assists to save as much as 5 percent, depending on the driver’s driving intuitiveness. As an upgrade for drivers who want to bring BMW’s unique motorsport capabilities to the street, the optional Sport Line package allows the fitting of an M Sport suspension which include stiffer spring, damper and stabilizer.
