The Driving Experience Control lets the driver choose between Comfort mode, for standard engine and transmission settings, ECO PRO mode, geared towards efficiency, and Sport mode, which enables even more dynamic driving. ECO PRO mode adjusts the characteristics of the accelerator pedal and transmission as well as the heating/air conditioning settings to optimise fuel consumption.
ECO PRO mode reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 percent. Further fuel savings potential is possible with ECO PRO Route, which suggests an efficiency-optimised route that takes into account the volume of traffic, as well as individual driving styles and local conditions in order to suggest a route that optimises efficiency and thereby reduces fuel consumption.
Comfort mode guarantees an extremely comfortable driving experience by suitably adjusting the settings of the suspension components. In Sport mode, all drive and suspension settings are adjusted for more dynamic driving. The engine is more spontaneously responsive, the gears of the automatic transmission are shifted at higher speeds, the shifting points for the manual transmission are shown later, and on the whole the vehicle reacts much more directly and dynamically.
Drive Performance Control is available for both BMW 2 Series Active Tourer models with a conventional drive system and the BMW 225xe iPerformance Active Tourer.
