8-speed Steptronic transmission.
Shifts gear without you noticing: the 8-speed Steptronic transmission not only sets standards in terms of driving dynamics and efficiency – it is also an essential constituent of the BMW EfficientDynamics measures.
The especially fine spacing of the gears permits optimum power build-up – from low up to high speeds. This reduces fuel consumption substantially while you can enjoy even more sports character and dynamism. At high speeds, in particular, the additional gears reduce the revs and hence both the consumption and engine noise as well. The converter clutch contributes to this as well – even when in manual gear shift mode. Interacting with the low rev intervals and the precise transmission tuning, it results in an especially high level of gear-changing comfort and a significant reduction in background noise. Nevertheless, one thing remains consistently high: the power and agility that the BMW 4 Series Coupé offers you.
Thanks to the 8-speed Steptronic transmission from BMW EfficientDynamics, it is now possible to actively boost performance in vehicles with the new Predictive Drive Train via the Driving Experience Control. In the "Sport" mode, the transmission management uses data from the navigation system to deliver a level of responsiveness that is even more dynamic and spontaneous based on route characteristics. As suggested by its name, the "Comfort" mode offers a comfort-oriented shift programme with fewer shifts.
