2024 BMW G60 520i in Malaysia – 208 hp/330 Nm 2.0T mild-hybrid, Driving Assistant Plus; RM340k estimated

Joining its battery-electric siblings in the G60 5 Series range – including the i5 M60 that was just launched in Malaysia today – is the BMW 520i, a locally-assembled (CKD) model that comes in at an estimated price of RM340,000, according to BMW Group Malaysia.

This serves as the entry point to the G60 BMW 5 Series range that packs a mild-hybrid powertrain, featuring the B48 2.0 litre inline-four turbocharged petrol engine that outputs 208 hp and 330 Nm of torque, incorporating 48-volt architecture that brings the electric component to its propulsion.

Driveline is to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, and thus equipped the G60 520i does the 0-100 km/h sprint benchmark in 7.5 seconds, and a top speed of 230 km/h.

Rolling stock is by 19-inch aero alloy wheels in the 934 bicolour grey design/colour scheme, here shod in tyres measuring 245/45R19 in front and at the rear. Suspension layout is common across both combustion-engined 5 Series and i5 EV variants, being a double wishbone setup for the front suspension and a five-link layout for the rear suspension.

Inside, the 520i marks a departure from the M Sport kit as seen on the Malaysian-market i5, with the cabin of the 2.0 litre mild-hybrid petrol featuring a two-spoke, flat-bottomed multi-function steering wheel.

Instrumentation and infotainment is provided by the BMW Curved Display that brings a 12.3-inch instrument panel and a 14.9-inch infotainment touchscreen, which is also accessed via the iDrive controller, and front seat occupants in the 520i get access to a wireless charging tray.

Driver assistance systems in the G60 520i come in the form of Driving Assistant Plus, which packs camera- and radar-based assistance systems including Active Cruise Control, Steering and Lane Control Assistant, and Lane Departure Warning.

In Malaysia, the G60 BMW 520i is offered in a choice of four exterior colours – Black Sapphire Metallic, Mineral White Metallic, Phytonic Blue Metallic, and Cape York Green Metallic, along with two interior Veganza perforated trim upholstery options, in quilted black or espresso brown.
