BMW PH serves up both driving fun and sustainable mobility with the new 2-Series Coupe and iX electric SAV

BMW has always been synonymous with driving pleasure. Fun behind the wheel without being harsh on your lower back. But take a look at BMW Philippines-SMC Asia Car Distributors Corp\s latest pair of offerings and you just might rethink this whole concept.

Now, the German carmaker is still sticking to its driving pleasure mantra. In fact, the new 2-Series Coupe, the 220i M Sport Coupe, just launched taxes its roots to the old compact sport coupes of yore. Its front engined, rear wheel drive layout makes for the perfect sports car recipe. Couple this with a 2.0-liter TwinPower inline-4 gasoline mill that puts out 184bhp and 221lb-ft of torque and you can expect fun behind the tiller with an 8-speed Steptronic gearbox to boot. Oh, and all this is wrapped in the classic yet still cool 3-box two-door coupe design.

The BMW 220i M Sport Coupe is available for P3,690,000 and comes with a 5-year warranty.

Going electric

With the automotive world slowly going electric, BMW Philippines serves up the all-new BMW iX fully electric Sport Activity Vehicle. Using two electric motors driving all four wheels via the gift-generation xDrive system, BMW claims that the iX can run for up to 475kms on a single charge. Speaking of which, BMW Philippines will install a Wallbox Charger in the owner’s home upon purchase of the vehicle.

This being a BMW, it comes with a host of driver assist technologies that can take it up to Level 3 self-driving capability. This essentially means that while you cannot solely rely on the system to do driving duties, it can help enhance safety and relieve stress while behind the wheel. And this is a BMW after all so driving must definitely be part of the experience.

The BMW iX xDrive40 is available for P6,290,000 and comes with a 5-year warranty, as well as an 8-year Battery Warranty. 

All told, BMW Philippines looks to the future without forgetting who it really is and what the brand stands for. Now, it can be the Ultimate Sustainable Driving Machine.
