BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo : Driving Experience Control

Driving Experience Control.

The Driving Experience Control gives you the choice: you use the button in the centre console to activate the desired mode.

Change from Comfort mode, with the standard engine and transmission settings, to ECO PRO Mode, geared towards efficiency, or Sport mode, which enables more dynamic driving. You can see underneath the rev counter which setting is currently activated.

The economical ECO PRO Mode intelligently adapts the characteristic curves for accelerator and transmission as well as the heating/air conditioning strategy. ECO PRO tips help you optimise your own driving and the bonus range gives you feedback on how many additional kilometres you have gained thanks to ECO PRO Mode optimised fuel consumption.

The ECO PRO Mode reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 per cent, depending on individual driving styles. The functions coasting, proactive driving assistant and ECO PRO Route enable another five per cent of savings potential. These are available in conjunction with Steptronic transmission and Navigation System Professional. Saving potential calculated in internal fuel consumption studies.

The proactive driving assistant works with the latest generation of the Navigation System Professional to anticipate local details and give you tips long before you become aware of the situation yourself. If there is town or a speed limit around the next corner, the system recommends you slow down before the bend so as to adapt speed as efficiently as possible.

ECO PRO Route also ensures economical use of fuel. It offers you a route optimised for efficiency based on traffic volume, individual driving style and local conditions. You can assess the saving potential indicated and then decide for yourself whether you want to follow this recommendation.

With the coasting function (only for Steptronic transmission), the car glides along the road at speeds of up to 160 km/h as soon as the driver removes their foot from the pedal and does not apply the brakes, and as long as the proactive driving assistant doesn't adapt speed to save fuel.

By contrast, in Sport mode the car responds more directly and allows a sportier driving style. A predefined set-up provides much sportier engine and suspension settings as compared to the standard set-up. For example, the engine becomes even more responsive. For models with the 8-speed Steptronic sport transmission, the gearshift timing is made much sportier. In conjunction with the Adaptive Suspension, the suspension settings are much more agile in Sport mode. Meanwhile Servotronic and variable sport steering reduce steering support.

Thanks to 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.
