Watch the film on Launch Control in the BMW 2 Series Coupé.
The eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission allows a significantly higher level of gear-changing and driving comfort thanks to the smaller gear ratios and minimised rev intervals. This combines maximum comfort with impressive dynamics and reduced fuel consumption. Plus, with Launch Control, your BMW will impress from the word go, even when it’s standing still. Give the Dynamic Stability Control button one short press, slide the gear lever into ‘S’, set the brakes and activate the kick-down function with the accelerator – now release the brakes and find out what torque really means.

BMW BluePerformance.

BMW BluePerformance Technologies reduce the nitrogen oxide (NOx) produced by the diesel engine to a minimum. In addition to the diesel particle filter and NOx catalytic converter, in some models an SCR catalytic converter (SCR = Selective Catalytic Reduction) with AdBlue® injection is integrated. These technologies further optimise the emissions of the diesel engine.
