By CARSIFU | 23 November 2021

KUALA LUMPUR: BMW Malaysia has upgraded the instrumentation and infotainment system of the new locally-assembled 218i Gran Coupé to a new system which comes with more flexibility and better display presentation.

The BMW Live Cockpit Professional featured in the new 218i Gran Coupé now consists of a 10.25-inch instrument display cluster (previously 5.1-inch) and a 10.25-inch central information display (previously 8.8-inch).

Both displays are designed with a new concept that aims to provide a fast, timely overview of relevant information.

Individualisation is now easier than ever, with a wider breadth of configuration options to personalise and enhance the driving experience.

Focused and fully-configurable display
The new BMW Live Cockpit Professional takes a “content-first” approach in displaying information, with a minimalistic and precise outlook.

Fuel level, speed, rpm and engine temperature are now presented in tube rings and have been arranged to free up more space in the centre for navigation display and other functions.

Tailoring the driving experience is a list of functions and configurable widgets, which include sports scoreboards, driving data, fuel consumption and efficiency, G-force meter, media, and radio.

Uniform Driving Experience modes
Reduced colour and graphical clutter also contribute to a more consistent feel and perceptual experience on the road.
Depending on the selected Driving Experience mode (Sport, Comfort, Eco-Pro), a uniform colour and look will be displayed across the information display cluster and central information display.

Intelligent Personal Assistant
For convenient and complete control over vehicle settings, navigation and entertainment systems, the voice-activated BMW Intelligent Personal Assistance can be brought to life with a “Hey BMW!” or an individual personalised activation word.

Dynamic Financial Programme
With the Balloon Financing Plan from BMW Group Financial Services Malaysia, the 218i Gran Coupé can be owned with a monthly instalment plan starting from RM2,268 (based on estimates of an 80% loan on a five-year tenure).
