The eight-speed Steptronic transmission is another key feature, ensuring incredibly soft gear changes, reduced noise at high speeds and significantly reduced fuel consumption (the optional Sport automatic transmission further increases the agility of the gear changes).
To make the experience in the cockpit even more enjoyable, all driving styles are catered for with Drive Performance Control. It provides the driver with three modes to choose from: Comfort, Sport and ECO PRO. Each offers various levels of dynamics and efficiency and gives the person behind the wheel greater flexibility in their driving style.
It’s not just the components inside the chassis that have changed in this latest generation, the chassis itself has been completely revamped. In addition, steering precision has been improved, rolling movements reduced and directional stability optimised, offering excellent roadholding, perfect handling and outstanding agility in all conditions.
The new BMW 3 Series has been setting new standards of driving dynamics for generations. And the legacy continues.
