Adaptive M suspension.
The optional Adaptive M suspension allows the sports tuning of the BMW 1 Series to be increased as required without compromising on comfort.
In the optional Adaptive M suspension, lowering the chassis by 10 mm produces increased agility without any loss in driving comfort. Using the driving experience switch, the driver can also choose between a setting geared towards sports character and one with an emphasis on comfort.
During the journey, sensors continuously measure data and control the shock absorber valves in the Adaptive M suspension according to the driving situation and road profile. This takes place for each wheel individually so that optimum road holding is guaranteed at all times.
