Outstanding dynamics and agility.

sDrive refers to BMW vehicles in which torque from the drive train is transmitted via only one axle. In vehicles with compact dimensions that nonetheless offer a spacious interior and a versatile, expandable luggage compartment, sDrive on the front axle along with a transverse engine is a space-saving solution that simultaneously guarantees outstanding dynamics and agility.

STEPTRONIC TRANSMISSION.

STEPTRONIC TRANSMISSION.

Benchmark in comfort and dynamics.

The 6-speed Steptronic transmission sets new benchmarks in comfort and dynamic performance and is a key element of BMW EfficientDynamics.

The particularly fine increments between gears facilitate optimum power delivery at all 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 in manual mode. In combination with the fast engine speed transitions and the precise transmission tuning, it provides a very high level of shifting comfort and reduces noise considerably.

PERFORMANCE CONTROL.

PERFORMANCE CONTROL.

Since the wheel on the outside edge of a curve covers more ground than the one on the inside, BMW Performance Control intervenes by adjusting engine output and through targeted braking: the outer wheels receive more power, the inner ones less, so that all of the wheels operate with maximum traction. This means that the vehicle practically turns itself, thus increasing driving safety and comfort.

Increased agility and driving comfort.

Electromechanical power steering creates a direct steering experience while simultaneously improving agility and driving comfort. In order to guarantee characteristic BMW steering precision in combination with front wheel drive, the electromechanical steering is perfectly calibrated to the new drive concept. The servo unit and steering gear are combined in a single component. That means that the steering system functions with particularly little friction.
In order to provide a precise and interference-free steering experience, the electronic steering works to counter the otherwise perceptible drive forces with electromechanical force in the steering gear at a level calculated by the DSC steering device. This drive-force compensation results in a level of steering precision that is on par with that of a vehicle with rear-wheel drive.
The very rigid front end and the precise axle kinematics contribute to the vehicle's exceptional steering characteristics. The electromagnetic power steering wins over drivers with its accuracy and its direct responsiveness, as well as with the reduced steering effort required while parking.

The variable sport steering with Servotronic creates a direct and agile steering response with less physical effort when turning. 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 when driving dynamically through sharp turns, along narrow roads or when making sudden swerves. It also makes parking, turning and manoeuvring more comfortable. For small steering angles, the system provides excellent directional stability and a very high degree of steering precision.
