Having been one of the few BMW models yet to be updated with all the Driving Assistant package, the G29 Z4 now comes with the welcome suite of active security features. The roadster, that also forms the basis of the Toyota GR Supra, is still offered in just an individual variation, the sDrive30i M Sport.
The change had been likely made early in the day into the 12 months prior to the government’s product sales and solution income tax (SST) rebate came into impact. Before that, the Z4 was coming in at RM484,800 with the full six percent in taxation, which caused it to be RM9,000 higher priced than when it was launched in July 2019. Using the 50percent SST reduction, the car now retails at RM469,510 on-the-road without insurance coverage.
Included in the Driving Assistant package are autonomous crisis braking, lane departure warning and blind spot monitoring. They’re similar features which were first introduced regarding 320i and 330i then swiftly rolled away to very nearly the complete Malaysian lineup.
Otherwise, the Z4 is the same as before, continuing ahead with Light-emitting Diode headlights, the M Sport package, 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels, keyless entry, push-button begin, power-adjustable seats with driver’s side memory and dual-zone climate control.

Also fitted are parking help with Reversing Assist, automated high beam, the range-topping BMW Live Cockpit Professional system with twin 10.25-inch shows for instrumentation and infotainment, cordless charging, a reverse camera, and a 12-speaker, 405-watt Harman Kardon sound system.
The motor can also be identical – it is the familiar B48 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder motor, developing 258 PS from 5,000 to 6,500 rpm and 400 Nm of torque between 1,550 and 4,400 rpm. Those outputs are provided for the trunk wheels via a ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox, allowing it getting from zero to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds and deliver a combined gas usage figure of 6.5 litres per 100 kilometer.
Other models which have hitherto perhaps not received the Driving Assistant package, the X2 while the non-M X3, do now include these features, a source at BMW Group Malaysia said. However, the company has yet to produce confirmed specs and rates the updated vehicles.
