BMW Malaysia is gearing up to introduce the all-new G20 BMW 3 Series soon, and the first few units appear to be on their way to showrooms, as spotted by paultan.org readers Duncan Loo and Inchek Muhammad.

Based on the badging seen on these cars, it looks like buyers will have access to the 330i M Sport variant, which is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine. The mill offers 258 PS from 5,000 to 6,500 rpm and 400 Nm, with drive going to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, allowing for a zero to 100 km/h time of 5.8 seconds.

These cars appear to come as standard with 18-inch bicolour Orbit Grey (Style 790) M light double-spoke alloy wheels, as well as enhanced LED headlamps with U-shaped daytime running lights. The M Sport kit includes a more aggressive front bumper with a larger lower intake, while the fog lamps and Air Curtain inlets are more prominent. Sport Line and Luxury Line models get T-shaped elements in the corners of the bumper instead.

As for the rear, you’ll find new LED tail lights with a three-dimensional L-shaped design and tinted lenses, while further down, the dual exhaust outlets are highlighted by black trim, with small slits in the corners.

By comparison, the rear bumpers on Sport Line and Luxury Line models mimic the T-shape elements at the front, and are differentiated by the presence of chrome accents. The colour options (for now) appear to include Portimao Blue, Sunset Orange metallic, and either Alpine White or Mineral White.

Unfortunately, these photos don’t include a view of the G20’s new interior, which is influenced by the G15 8 Series, G05 X5 and G29 Z4. As a result, the list of equipment that will be offered remains a mystery until launch. However, available features for the G20’s cabin include Live Cockpit Professional, which consists of a 10.25-inch centre screen and 12.3-inch instrument display linked to BMW Operating System 7.0 with the Intelligent Personal Assistant.

We’ll only get full information when the all-new G20 3 Series is launched in Malaysia, continuing its battle against the W205 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which was given a facelift here in November last year. Which of the two will you pick, and why?
