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 further helps to conserve fuel. 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.
Take it to the next level: When the Sport mode on the Driving Experience Control is switched on, the engine and suspension of the BMW will react even more directly for a more dynamic drive.
The Sport mode is activated with the Driving Experience Control switch in the centre console. This activates a pre-defined configuration of engine and suspension settings, which, depending on the equipment fitted, are significantly more dynamic than the standard settings. For example, the engine becomes even more responsive. The timing of the gearshifts is made considerably sportier. In Sport mode, the current output (kW) and contingent torque (Nm) are also shown in the central display.
