THE POWER TO SHIFT BOUNDARIES.

Driving Dynamics & Efficiency of the BMW X1.

The BMW X1 is in its element everywhere, inspiring with its precise handling, whether on-road or off-road. This is made possible by a range of perfectly coordinated components. The basis for this comes from the near-optimum weight distribution of 57:43 (front/rear) on the two axles. The standard front wheel drive system BMW sDrive delivers the power of the BMW X1 precisely to the wheel where it is needed – regardless of the road surface. The suspension designed for maximum dynamics provides you with precise feedback at all times. At the same time, the BMW X1 reduces fuel consumption and emissions thanks to comprehensive BMW EfficientDynamics measures. And, as a result, you notice the sheer driving pleasure with every metre.

BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY.

BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY.

The combination of economical BMW TwinPower Turbo engines, intelligent lightweight construction and sophisticated aerodynamics form the basis in the BMW X1 for enhanced driving pleasure with reduced fuel consumption. Rounding off this approach are BMW EfficientDynamics technologies such as the standard-feature energy management with Automatic Start/Stop function and Brake Energy Regeneration. Options such as the 7-speed Dual Clutch transmission help to further increase efficiency and dynamics in the BMW X1.

STEPTRONIC

The Steptronic transmissions set standards in comfort, dynamics and efficiency. They are a key constituent of the BMW EfficientDynamics measures. The fine spacing between gears permits optimum power build-up at all speeds. This reduces fuel consumption substantially while, at the same time, providing you with even more sportiness and dynamics.

  • Steptronic transmission with double clutch (X-Line)

    The 7-speed Steptronic transmission with double-clutch technology combines the best efficiency with particularly smooth gearshifts and outstanding driving comfort, thanks to tightly spaced gear ratios and fast engine speed transitions. It therefore unites superb comfort with impressive dynamics and increased fuel efficiency.

  • Steptronic Sport transmission with double clutch (Sport line)

    The automatic 7-speed Steptronic Sport transmission with double clutch offers incredibly sporty gear changes. In addition to automatic gear selection, dynamic gear changes can also be done manually. An Optimum Shift Indicator provides recommendations as appropriate and gears are shifted via the selector lever or gearshift paddles on the Sport leather steering wheel. Setting it to automatic allows the most appropriate gear to be selected to suit individual driving styles. Its range covers everything from comfortable coasting to a very dynamic driving style.

    In SPORT mode and with the gear lever in the left-hand S/M position, 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 high speed range at which it can access plenty of power output. The Launch Control function regulates the ideal starting engine speed, allowing maximum acceleration from a standing start. The seventh gear reduces the engine speed and fuel consumption at high speeds. The especially efficient 7-speed Steptronic Sport transmission with double clutch works together with the engine to provide outstanding fuel efficiency, power delivery and shift comfort.

ECO PRO MODE.

The ECO PRO Mode helps drivers reduce their fuel consumption by up to 20 percent, depending on their driving style – according to an internal BMW fuel consumption study. The additional coasting function and ECO PRO Route offer an increased savings potential.

  • Coasting

    The coasting function decouples the drive train from the engine and the vehicle rolls without the transmission. The car "coasts" when the driver takes the foot from the gas between 50 and 160 km/h and does not apply the brakes. In combination with Active Cruise Control, the vehicle also accelerates back to the desired speed more efficiently after braking when in ECO PRO Mode.

  • ECO PRO route

    ECO PRO route shows the most efficient route based on the traffic situation, driving style and local conditions. The on-board computer displays the percentage of fuel that can be saved by driving along the route selected by ECO PRO route.

INTELLIGENT ENERGY MANAGEMENT.

Like every BMW, the BMW X1 also has BMW EfficientDynamics technologies such as the Automatic Start/Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration and electromechanical power steering as standard features. All the technologies work together as intelligent energy management to provide the mobility of the future today.

  • 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

    With Brake Energy Regeneration, the alternator generates electricity primarily when the driver brakes or takes their foot off the accelerator. Previously unused kinetic energy is transformed into electrical energy and fed into the battery. The alternator therefore no longer needs to run constantly, fuel consumption drops and the engine's full output is then available for the drive train when accelerating.

  • Electromechanical power steering

    Unlike hydraulic systems, electromechanical power steering is only active when the driver actually steers. This means that less energy – and therefore less fuel – is consumed.

  • Optimum Shift Indicator

    Perfectly timed gear shifts can significantly help save fuel, particularly in urban traffic and over long distances. Change gears at the right time, use less fuel – the engine’s electronics system identifies the most efficient gear, based on road conditions and engine speed. An arrow lights up in the Info Display to show when it would be more efficient to shift into a higher or lower gear. The system also recognises quick acceleration, and will delay its recommendation accordingly until the engine speed has increased. Drivers using a Steptronic transmission in manual mode also receive relevant shifting suggestions. BMW internal comparative tests have shown that vehicles with the Optimum Shift Indicator use around four percent less fuel.
