Well, yet more E90 3 Series editions spring forth. BMW Malaysia has announced the availability of two new 320i variants – the 320i Executive Edition and the 320i M Sport – in the local lineup.
Both versions run with the ubiquitous 156 hp 2.0 litre four-pot block, so no change there, but feature new kit and trim. The 320i Executive Edition comes with 17-inch style 338 V-spoke light alloy wheels, with silver trimming in the front apron as well as chrome for the window recess cover and kidney bars, adding what is tagged an elegant touch to the variant.
Inside, the Executive Edition gets a sports leather steering wheel, black high-gloss interior trim, full electric seat adjustment and doorsill trim sporting the Edition logo.
As for the 320i M Sport, it gets a customised M Sport and M Aerodynamics package, which includes the M Sport suspension, 17-inch style 194M double-spoke M light alloy wheels and BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line window frames.
For the interior, the M Sport version bags you sports seats for the driver and front passenger, Aluminium Glacier silver trim, and an anthracite BMW Individual headliner.
Both variants will also feature for the first time BMW Navigation System Professional and BMW ConnectedDrive Infotainment features, which up till now have only been available exclusively on the six-cylinder versions of the 3er.
Features include an 8.8-inch dashboard-mounted LCD and iDrive controller for the GPS kit, while items on ConnectedDrive are complete USB connectivity and Bluetooth hands free functions, expanded functionality for mobile phones and portable music players as well as on-board Internet and mobile office applications.
The 320i Executive Edition goes for RM241,800, while the 320i M Sport rolls in at RM253,800, both on-the-road, without insurance, with BMW Service Inclusive + Repair.
