G30 BMW 5 Series CKD on sale: 530i M Sport, RM389k

G30 BMW 5 Series CKD on sale: 530i M Sport, RM389k

Six months after the G30 BMW 5 Series was introduced in Malaysia in fully-imported (CBU) form, the locally-assembled version (CKD) has finally arrived. The executive sedan continues to be offered in a single 530i M Sport variant but gets a RM10,000 price drop, retailing at RM388,800 on-the-road without insurance.

As far as kit count is concerned, it loses out on adaptive cruise control with stop and go, but otherwise standard equipment remains identical to the CBU model. On the outside, that means you get the full M Sport appearance package, plus adaptive LED headlights with auto high beam, LED fog lights, 19-inch double-spoke style 664 M alloy wheels, M Sport brakes with blue callipers and BMW Individual satin aluminium trim.

Other items on the list include Comfort Access keyless entry, power-adjustable front sports seats with driver’s side memory, four-zone automatic climate control, a glass sunroof, sunblinds for the rear side windows (manual) and rear windscreen (electric), 11-colour ambient lighting, a powered tailgate with kick-activated hands-free operation and M Sport suspension with Dynamic Damper Control.

You also get the upgraded Professional navigation system with a 10.25-inch touchscreen and gesture control, along with a full 12.3-inch multifunction instrument display, a reverse camera, Park Assistant for automated parallel and perpendicular parking manoeuvres and a 16-speaker, 600 watt Harman Kardon surround sound system. The touchscreen-equipped Display Key is also retained.

Safety-wise, the CKD 530i M Sport comes with the Driving Assistant package that adds Approach Control Warning and Person Warning with City Brake function, operating at speeds between 10 km/h and 60 km/h for pedestrians and 80 km/h for vehicles. Other features included in the pack include Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Warning, rear collision prevention and rear crossing traffic warning.

The B48 2.0 litre turbo four-cylinder engine remains, producing 252 hp from 5,200 to 6,500 rpm and 350 Nm of torque between 1,450 and 4,800 rpm. All that is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission, resulting in a zero to 100 km/h sprint time of 6.2 seconds, as well as fuel consumption of 5.5 litres per 100 km combined and carbon dioxide emissions of 126 grams per kilometre.

  • CKD just RM10k cheaper? How come?

    Doesn’t matter anyway, for this generation more will go for the E Class instead.

          Mercedes in european countries is use as Taxis, limousines and Uber cars , So definitely is three level below Volvo and Jaguar

          BMW can seen use by thieves or robberies or drug pushers , pimps so it is definitely classified as one of the black market car level . In this regards , Volvo and jaguar still standout better and higher level than BMW in perceptions

    For those who’s not in on the plot, the price will be dropped further once they get the EEV status. That’s why the CKD price isn’t that different from the CBU. Otherwise early buyers will get mad like what happened with Mercedes.

      so if you wanna save some bucks, wait for EEV status, price should go down by 20k or so. those who get EEV will then be pissed off when the 530e PHEV comes in CKD and then it’s even below rm350k.

    rm10k cheaper minus the adaptive cruise…that adaptive option would have cost rm10k…so ckd actually no price reduction in term of tax..but due to less accessories.

        Mercedes even worst and more LOWER CLASS cos use as taxis, limousines and uberS in Europe.

        BMW becomes a junk and no class at all after three years of usage. The design does not look evergreen and instantly becomes dated then.

        S90 CBU is not cheap and cos more to buy than BMW 530i, So the S90 CKD version is good value with saving and thus higher level and better looking design than this lower class BMW.

        Cannot stop me from thinking BMW is lower class than Volvo currently.

    Luckily I got the CBU version. RM10k drop for CKD is pathetic. Wait till January 2018, there’ll be a lot of pre reg going for RM350k or so. Hybrid 530e should be out next year for also about RM530k with HUD etc

    For god sake it is CKD, hence less TAX. By right they should give more (could have throw in HUD) and reduce the price by atleast 20k.
    Those who want to get 5 series, just go for the CBU.
