ADAPTIVE M SUSPENSION.

Adaptive M suspension

ADAPTIVE M SUSPENSION.

The Adaptive M suspension is set ten millimetres lower, further increasing the vehicle's full dynamic potential. The driver can adjust the driving characteristics via the Driving Experience Control to enable whichever driving style is most appealing at the time – from comfortable to extremely athletic. Whichever setting is chosen, the Adaptive M suspension's electrically controlled dampers calibrate to suit the road conditions within fractions of a second. The system also uses numerous sensors that measure wheel vibrations, as well as vehicle speed, in order to achieve optimal damping and vehicle safety.

COMFORT mode can be selected for relaxed travelling. SPORT mode enables a distinctly athletic suspension setting with noticeably tighter damper settings. For extremely dynamic driving, SPORT+ mode is the best choice: the DTC function (Dynamic Traction Control ) is activated, which allows more wheel-slip on the drive wheels, for athletic driving that pushes the limits of the car's dynamics. However, the DSC function is not completely disabled; rather it intervenes much later – within the limits of what is physically possible and safe – in order to stabilise the vehicle.

Variable Sport Steering

VARIABLE SPORT STEERING.

The variable sport steering with Servotronic enables a direct and agile driving style with less physical effort when steering. It reacts to the angle of the steering wheel independently from the current speed with various steering ratios. This reduces the steering movement required when steering at particularly large angles. This significantly increases agility and improves handling in sharp turns, along narrow roads or when making sudden swerves while using a particularly sporty driving style. It also increases comfort when parking, turning and manoeuvring. For small steering angles, the system provides excellent directional stability and a very high degree of steering precision.

8-SPEED STEPTRONIC TRANSMISSION.

BMW 8-Speed Steptronic Transmission

8-SPEED STEPTRONIC TRANSMISSION.

The 8-speed Steptronic transmission sets a new benchmark in dynamic performance and efficiency and is a key element of BMW EfficientDynamics .

The particularly finely tuned gradation of the gears allows optimum power delivery – at both low and high speeds. This reduces fuel consumption significantly, while allowing the driver to enjoy increased sportiness and dynamic performance. At high speeds in particular, the additional gears reduce engine speed, in turn decreasing both fuel consumption and engine noise.

The converter clutch also helps – even if the car is changed to the manual mode. In combination with the fast engine speed transitions and the precise transmission tuning, it provides a very high level of shift comfort and reduces noise considerably.

Thanks to the 8-speed Steptronic transmission from BMW EfficientDynamics , it is now possible to actively boost performance in vehicles with the new Predictive Drive Train via the Driving Experience Control. In the "Sport" mode, the transmission management uses data from the navigation system to deliver a level of responsiveness that is even more dynamic and spontaneous based on route characteristics. As suggested by its name, the "Comfort" mode offers a comfort-oriented shift programme with fewer shifts.

DRIVING EXPERIENCE CONTROL.

Driving Experience Control lets the driver choose between the Comfort mode, for standard engine and transmission settings, the ECO PRO Mode, geared towards efficiency, and the Sport mode, which enables even more dynamic driving. The fuel-efficient ECO PRO Mode intelligently adjusts the characteristics of the accelerator pedal and transmission, as well as the heating/air conditioning settings.
The ECO PRO Mode reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 percent. The “coasting” function (only available with Steptronic transmission), Route-Ahead Assistant and ECO PRO Route (only available with Navigation System Professional) further help to conserve fuel. The Route-Ahead Assistant uses the navigation system to assess local road conditions and give tips in advance. If there is a speed limit change around the next curve, the system advises the driver to slow down before turning.
ECO PRO Route also helps to ensure efficient use of fuel. It suggests an efficiency-optimised route that takes into account the volume of traffic, individual driving style and local conditions. The “coasting” function allows the vehicle to coast along the road at up to 160 km/h when the driver takes his or her foot from the gas without braking. In Sport mode, the car responds more directly, allowing for a sportier driving style.
