BMW X2 sDrive20i M Sport X

The first-ever BMW X2 sDrive20i M Sport X

Price: THB 2,999,000 (with BSI Standard package)


With its unmistakable design and sporty, urban feel, the BMW X2 breaks new ground for BMW as a unique and exciting addition to the BMW X model range.


A more compact sibling of the BMW X4 and X6, the BMW X2 boasts a wholly distinctive character with an exterior design that combines the low-slung proportions of a coupé with the robust core of a BMW X model. For the first time on a modern BMW, the styling of kidney grille is wider at its base than its top giving the car a broader, more distinctive and sportier appearance. Below the grille, the hexagonal surface treatment in the bumper further reinforces this impression. Also for the first time on a BMW X model, the C-pillars now feature the BMW roundel in a touch reminiscent of legendary models such as the BMW 2000 CS and BMW 3.0 CSL.


With the M Sport X package, the BMW X2 stands out with its wraparound signature shade in Frozen Grey, which products a stunning visual contrast and emphasizes the car’s width and its strong character. The twin tailpipes hint the powerful engine of the X2 while the 19-inch M light alloy wheels in Y-spoke style are framed by the unique squared-off wheel arches – also in Frozen Grey.


The BMW X2 sDrive20i M Sport X is powered by a 4-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, producing a maximum output of 192 hp at 5,000-6,000 rpm and 280 Nm of torque at 1,350-4,600 rpm. Paired with a 7-speed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission, the engine powers the X2 to a rapid 0-100 km/h time of 7.7 seconds and a top speed of 227 km/h.


The car’s driving dynamics can be adjusted with the Driving Experience Control switch, allowing the driver to choose between the default COMFORT mode, the efficiency-enhancing ECO PRO mode, and the SPORT mode for even more dynamic steering and powertrain responses.


The BMW X2 is equipped with a two-part panorama glass roof – with a front section that opens to varying degrees – covers almost the entire headliner of the BMW X2, offering additional light in the interior and a fascinatingly expansive sense of space. Other standard specifications include an 8.8-inch Control Display with iDrive Touch Controller, BMW Head-Up Display, Hands-free facility with USB interface and enhanced telephony with extended smartphone connectivity.


Also available for the first time on a BMW are the exterior color shades Galvanic Gold metallic and Misano Blue metallic. The M Sport X kit gives the BMW X2 a thoroughly sporty interior with a Micro Hexagon fabric / Alcantara Anthracite trim, while the boot capacity of 470 liters ensures that the car can effortlessly take on everyday drives and adventurous road trips alike.

A versatile all-rounder that offers plenty of space for all manner of activities, the new BMW 530i Touring M Sport features trailblazing assistance systems and the latest in digital connectivity.

With the dimension at 36 mm longer (at 4,942mm), 8 mm wider (1,868mm) and 10 mm taller (1,498mm) than its predecessor, the new 530i Touring sports a pair of headlights that now extend as far as the BMW kidney grille – itself equipped with active air flap control for better cooling performance. Twin exhaust pipes contribute to the sporty and athletic character of the car.


Offering 30 liters more luggage space than in its predecessor, the new BMW 530i Touring M Sport has a boot capacity of 570 - 1,700 liters. Standard specification includes automated tailgate operation and Comfort Access system to allow hands-free opening and closing of the tailgate with a carefully aimed flick of the foot under the rear apron, plus innovative storage solutions such as the 40:20:40 near flat-folding rear seat backrests.

The new BMW M4 CS

Price: THB 11,439,000 (with BSI Standard package)


Continuing the legacy of successful M special editions, the new limited-run special-edition BMW M4 CS offers sporty dynamics of the highest level, outstanding performance and surprising everyday comfort. At the heart of the BMW M4 CS lies an incredibly powerful 3-liter, 6-cylinder M TwinPower Turbo engine, delivering an upgraded power output of 460 hp for a 0-100 km/h time of just 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 280 km/h. The new BMW M4 CS is equipped as standard with the seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Drivelogic, enabling both automated gear changes and manual interventions using the shift paddles on the steering wheel.


Ensuring the best possible grip in all driving conditions are the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) system – which includes M Dynamic Mode – and the Active M Differential. Drivers can choose between three driving modes (Comfort, Sport and Sport+) at the touch of a button to adjust the steering and suspension settings to their personal preferences or the demands of the route at hand.


The new M4 CS exterior reflects the car’s sporting intent. The signature feature of its prominent front end, complete with cutting-edge twin LED headlights, is the front apron with large, three-section air intakes. The bonnet and roof are made from the lightweight, extremely rigid and high-tech material carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) while coupe-like roofline, elegantly sporty M exterior mirrors and muscular wheel arches allow the new BMW M4 CS to cut an extremely dynamic figure, even when it’s standing still.


The interior of the new BMW M4 CS sets out squarely to create a sporting ambience. Lightweight M sports seats trimmed in leather/Alcantara. M lightweight sport seats that feature width-adjustable backrests, M striping for front seat belts, M leather steering wheel, and M gear shift lever finish contribute to the focus on performance of the new BMW M4 CS which will be available in BMW Individual special paintwork.


The All-New BMW M5

Price: 13,339,000 THB (with BSI Standard package)


Sporting for the first time the new M xDrive all-wheel drive system, the All-New BMW M5 sets a new benchmark for the high-performance sedan segment. The sixth generation BMW M5 offers superior dynamic dimensions with the M xDrive system that enables a wonderfully fleet-footed rear-biased set-up by only bringing the front wheels into play when the rear wheels aren’t able to transmit any more power to the road and additional tractive force is required.


The system’s handling characteristics can be adjusted as desired with five different configurations to choose from based on combinations of the DSC modes (DSC on, MDM, DSC off) and M xDrive modes (4WD, 4WD Sport, 2WD) for ideal performance on racetracks and highways alike. Another ingredient in the car’s supreme traction in all road and weather conditions is the Active M Differential at the rear axle, which also works fully variably and has a locking effect between 0 and 100 per cent.


Among the essential features for drivers with sporting aspirations are the two red-painted M1 and M2 buttons next to the gearshift paddles on the M multifunction steering wheel, which allow drivers to configure two individual set-ups for the All-New BMW M5. These include their choice of M xDrive, DSC, engine, transmission, damper and steering characteristics, as well as the appearance of M view in the Head-Up Display.


Providing ample power for the All-New BMW M5 is a 4.4-liter V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology. The engine develops 441 kW/600 hp at 5,600 – 6,700 rpm, while a monumental 750 Nm of torque is placed at the driver’s disposal from as low down as 1,800 rpm and remains there until 5,600 rpm. Paired with an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h in 11.1 seconds, and an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h.
