DYNAMIC EFFICIENCY.

The BMW Turismo sets standards in terms of dynamics and ride comfort. Interacting with the strength of BMW TwinPower Turbo engines, the eight-speed Steptronic Sport Automatic Transmission enables optimum power build-up at all speeds.

  • 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 engine speeds, all while being exceptionally fuel efficient and low in emissions. Increased efficiency and optimal dynamics guarantee noticeably more intense driving pleasure.

    These petrol engines feature innovative turbocharger technology, Valvetronic fully variable valve control including Double-VANOS, and High-Precision Injection. A series of highly sophisticated elements which together provide tremendous power delivery and high efficiency in one. Turbochargers with variable turbine geometry and the newest generation of common rail direct injection are also combined
    in the diesel engines. This level of optimised combustion further contributes to reduced fuel consumption and emissions.

  • 8-speed Steptronic Sport Automatic Transmission

    The automatic 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission adapts to suit individual driving styles. It is perfect for everything from comfortable cruising through to a very dynamic drive. In addition to automatic gear selection, it is of course possible to shift gears manually at any time – optionally with the assistance of the Optimum Shift Indicator. The driver can change gears using the shortened gear lever or the gearshift paddles on the Sport leather steering wheel.


    In SPORT mode, the gear shifts are configured for the best possible performance. Fast engine speed transitions between the gears bolster powerful acceleration. The engine always maintains a speed at which it can access very high power output at any time. The Launch Control function regulates the ideal starting engine speed, allowing maximum acceleration from a standing start. At high speeds, the eight gear reduces the engine speed and fuel consumption. This is also where the newly developed converter clutch comes into play. The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission works together with the engine to deliver smooth gear shifts and top figures in efficiency and power delivery.

ACTIVE REAR SPOILER.

The Active rear spoiler automatically extends at a speed of over 110 km/h and retracts once the speed returns to 70 km/h in order to improve stability. It can also be manually activated via a button on the driver's door.

INTELLIGENT ENERGY MANAGEMENT.

Standard BMW EfficientDynamics technologies – such as Automatic Start/Stop function, ECO PRO mode, Brake Energy Regeneration and electro-mechanical power steering – form an intelligent energy management system that reduces fuel consumption, thereby contributing to sustainable mobility. A high level of driving dynamics and driving pleasure are preserved without compromise.

  • Driving Experience Control incl. ECO PRO

    The Driving Experience Control offers the driver the choice between COMFORT mode, the efficiency oriented ECO PRO mode, the SPORT mode, which enables a sporty-dynamic driving or the SPORT+ mode, which pushes dynamic driving to the limits. ECO PRO mode adjusts the characteristics of the Steptronic transmission (if present) and the heating/air conditioning settings to make the drive as fuel-efficient as possible. It can reduce fuel consumption by up to 20 percent. Further fuel savings potential is possible with the coasting function and 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. The "coasting" function allows the vehicle to coast along the road at up to 160 km/h without additional power input when the driver takes his or her foot from the gas without braking.

    COMFORT mode guarantees an extremely pleasant driving experience by suitably adjusting the settings of the suspension components. In the SPORT and SPORT+ modes, 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. Overall, the vehicle's reactions are significantly tighter and more direct.

  • Automatic Start/Stop function

    The Automatic Start/Stop function switches off the engine when the vehicle comes to a temporary standstill (e.g. at traffic lights or in a traffic jam) to further reduce
    overall fuel consumption. When the driver presses down on the clutch (manual transmission) or takes their foot off the brake (Steptronic transmission), the engine automatically starts up again in a fraction of a second.

  • Brake Energy Regeneration

    Every braking process generates kinetic energy; and until recently this energy went unused. Brake Energy Regeneration takes advantage of this potential. It harnesses the coasting energy that is generated whenever the driver brakes or takes his or her foot off the accelerator and turns it into electricity. This electricity is then used to charge the car battery. This intelligent energy management system means that the alternator no longer needs to generate energy constantly, which in turn reduces the strain on the motor. The result: reduced fuel consumption and increased propulsion power – classic attributes of BMW EfficientDynamics.

  • Electric Power Steering

    Electric power steering optimally adjusts the steering support to the current speed. This results in direct, precise steering behaviour at high speeds and effortless manoeuvrability when parking. The steering only consumes energy when it is really necessary. This saves fuel and reduces emissions.

    Instead of a hydraulic pump, it relies on an electric motor. In conventional systems, this pump must be constantly powered by the engine, but this electric support only runs when the steering wheel is being moved. When driving straight ahead or maintaining the same steering angle (e.g. on long bends), the electric motor is not active and does not consume any energy. By flexibly adjusting the steering support to match the current driving situation and speed, steering comfort is improved.
