The 8-speed Sport Automatic Transmission Steptronic 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 the sensation of impressive dynamics and reduced fuel consumption. With Launch Control, your BMW will impress from the word go, even when it’s standing still. The keyword is maximum acceleration. One short press of the DSC button, 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 means.
