What is BMW Steptronic Transmission?
The BMW Steptronic Transmission gives you options so that you don’t have to choose between an automatic or manual transmission. The gearbox with the Steptronic gives you the choice between using a manual shift when you want to and changing over to the multi-drive mode automatic when you need it.
How the BMW Steptronic Transmission Works
The Steptronic transmission works in three different modes. The first mode is the fully automatic drive mode. It allows the driver to focus on other aspects of the driving experience without worrying about shifting. The second mode is a manual/ sports driving mode that makes the engine rev higher before shifting. The third mode is a manual shift mode. It gives the driver the opportunity to fully control the shifting of the vehicle.
Why Choose Steptronic?
The newest generation of BMW’s Steptronic transmissions is so well-designed that they can actually out-perform a manual-shift transmission, even when driven by a highly experienced driver. This highly advanced transmission system has been designed to give drivers the most flexibility possible, without detracting from the driving experience. After all, choosing a BMW is about performance and the Ultimate Driving Machine.
