BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGIES.

Get more out of every litre of fuel with BMW EfficientDynamics: better performance, greater efficiency and a heightened driving experience. Technical innovations that lower fuel consumption while simultaneously increasing driving pleasure mean that pure dynamics come standard in every BMW.

BMW TWINPOWER TURBO ENGINES.

Thanks to BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, the innovative new generation of BMW petrol and diesel engines from the BMW EfficientDynamics engine range can deliver an agile performance and excellent responsiveness even at low rpms, all while being exceptionally fuel efficient and low in emissions. Increased efficiency and optimal dynamics guarantee noticeably more intense driving pleasure.
The petrol engines feature innovative turbocharger technology, Valvetronic fully variable valve control, including Double-VANOS variable camshaft control and High-Precision Injection. Together, the highly sophisticated components provide tremendous power delivery and improved efficiency.

8-SPEED STEPTRONIC TRANSMISSION.

The 8-speed Steptronic transmission sets new benchmarks in comfort and dynamic performance and is a key element of BMW EfficientDynamics. The unusually 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. The engine speed is reduced, particularly at high speeds, which in turn reduces both fuel consumption and engine noise.
The converter clutch also helps – even if the car is in manual mode. Together with the fast engine speed transitions and precise transmission tuning it guarantees incredibly smooth gearshifts.
Integrated functions such as predictive drive train and the constant monitoring of the vehicle's movements and the traffic situation considerably affect the way the transmission shifts gears. Regardless of the current driving mode, the system always selects the most suitable gear. The transmission control unit is linked to the navigation system, so depending on the route, the predictive drivetrain switches between a more athletic, responsive setting (SPORT mode) and a more comfortable setting with fewer gear shifts (COMFORT mode).

100 % SPORTY.

The M Performance model BMW M135i is the sportiest BMW 1 Series variant in every respect. Features such as variable sport steering, M Sport suspension or Adaptive M suspension further boost driving dynamics.

  • Variable sport steering
  • M Sport suspension
  • Adaptive M suspension

ECO PRO MODE.

The ECO PRO mode helps drivers reduce their fuel consumption by up to 20 percent, depending on their driving style – according to an internal BMW fuel consumption study. The coasting function (only in conjunction with Steptronic transmission), the route-ahead assistant (only in conjunction with Navigation system Professional) and ECO PRO route (only in conjunction with Navigation system Professional or Business) make it possible to save a further five percent.
