BMW Malaysia has launched the latest locally-assembled BMW X1 sDrive20i xLine, featuring larger dimensions and a powerful appearance.
Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “As we commemorate our 20th year of business in Malaysia this year, it is a great pleasure to see how far we have come as a brand in our commitment to investing in the local automotive industry. From the establishment of our assembly plant in Kulim over 15 years ago, to delivering our 100,000th locally-assembled BMW vehicle just last year – the BMW X1 model series has been an anchor through it all. Bringing the third generation of this beloved SAV to life and assembling it locally demonstrates not just our confidence in the Malaysian market, but also the strong support that we continue to receive from our loyal customers here as well.”
The new model offers a distinctive new design featuring a powerful stance, complemented by a spacious interior – thanks to the new SAV’s larger dimensions.
