12 13 Design and individuality
Give yourself plenty of time and let the interior of the BMW Series really sink in. You can design this vehicle to perfectly reﬂ ect your own personal taste. There are virtually endless possibilities. Take for example the Urban Line and Sport Line equipment shown here. It’s just a glimpse of the range of exclusive materials and colours you can choose from to really bring out your own individual style. The BMW Series is all about the needs of the driver. That goes for the countless combination possibilities, as for the optimal driver orientation. Anyone who takes a seat in the BMW Series immediately notices the intuitively arranged controls and the signiﬁ cantly improved all-round visibility. The door pockets, where bottles with a volume of up to one litre can be stored, and the cup holders, optimally located in front of the gear lever, offer additional storage options. The BMW Series also offers more
ﬂ exibility in the rear and the luggage compartment: the backrest optionally folds down in a : : split. So you and your passengers can enjoy four generously sized seats even when the rear centre armrest is folded down. The result is a diverse and exciting interior design that gives fresh expression to your own individual style every single day.
CAN EFFICIENCY BE DYNAMIC?
CAN DYNAMICS BE EFFICIENT? ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS THAT MOVE US.
THE REQUIREMENTS ARE CLEAR: WE HAVE TO CONSERVE RESOURCES, LOWER EMISSIONS, ACT SUSTAINABLY. SOUNDS SENSIBLE. BUT WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE OUR DRIVING PLEASURE? QUESTIONS ABOUT BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS POSED BY ADAM UND FREDDIE LUND. Adam Lund: Efﬁ ciency and dynamics… isn’t that a contradiction? BMW: On the contrary: BMW Efﬁ cientDynamics combines both of these things. This technology package lowers emissions but still ensures impressive driving dynamics. This is best exempliﬁ ed by the new BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engines. They contribute towards the BMW Series’ outstanding performance to fuel consumption ratio that’s among the best in its class. Freddie Lund: What are the latest developments from BMW Efﬁ cientDynamics? One completely new feature is the ECO PRO Mode. This is based on the fact that the driver holds the key to greater fuel efﬁ ciency with more economical driving. By giving the driver feedback and recommendations on their driving, it allows up to a percent reduction in fuel consumption. In this mode, what is known as the bonus mileage is displayed in the on-board computer. It tells the driver how many kilometres they have gained by using the 14 15 BMW EfficientDynamics
BMW Efﬁ cientDynamics in the BMW Series. Among other features, this technology package includes the new BMW TwinPower Turbo engines as well as the Auto Start/ Stop function, which is now also available in conjunction with the new eight-speed automatic transmission. Another highlight is the Driving Experience Control switch. Alongside the ECO PRO Mode, it offers the Sport+, Sport and Comfort modes (depending on the equipment ﬁ tted).
pleasure is a priority. And if something’s fun, it motivates you to drive better – or in this case, more efﬁ ciently. Freddie Lund: So, as the driver, I ultimately determine how efﬁ cient my car is?
tips given. Plus, if you opt for the extended instrument panel, the rev counter also includes an Efﬁ cientDynamics display. It shows how far the accelerator pedal should be depressed to achieve efﬁ cient acceleration.
Yes and no. Basically, BMW leaves it up to the driver to decide how much they want to modify their driving style. However, when they activate the ECO PRO Mode, the vehicle characteristics also change. For example, there’s also a feature that stops the automatic air conditioning and the seat heating from running on the highest setting. But the BMW Series can still perform at full power. And fuel efﬁ ciency remains a top priority at all times, thanks to a range of standard BMW Efﬁ cientDynamics technologies. www.bmw.com/ series_ door/efﬁ ciency www.bmw.com/ series_ door/efﬁ ciency

TRUE INDIVIDUALITY IS A RARE QUALITY. BUT IT COMES STANDARD IN THE INTERIOR OF EVERY BMW SERIES.
YOUR PERSONALITY, YOUR DESIGN.
BMW Advanced Design is researching the future and is using unconventional materials to get there. New design ideas evolve from working with stone and wood, for example, and from art workshops on topics such as calligraphy.
MATERIALS RESEARCH. Small sculptures made of paper, artfully laminated wood and ﬁ ne sketches in Indian ink can all be found at the BMW Advanced Design Studio in Munich. These pieces of work are the result of various workshops where the designers research new materials for the interiors and exteriors of tomorrow.
Origami ‒ the art of folding paper ‒ is used to create small works of art. These served as inspiration for the BMW designers who created the interior of the BMW Concept Coupé.
At the BMW Group Research and Innovation Centre in Munich, researchers concentrate not only on future BMW vehicles but on the future itself. Their research revolves around the most fundamental of questions. How and where do we live and work? What are our needs and how do they impact upon our environment? The goal is to gain a profound understanding of the present and the future ‒ enabling us to draw conclusions about our mobility needs and aesthetic sensibilities. This understanding inﬂ uences the overall creative concept ‒ as evidenced in the new BMW Series. The designers at BMW draw inspiration for their
creativity from workshops about art, craftsmanship and new materials. And the materials examined here are not just the common ones typically found in vehicles. The point of working with synthetic materials from the sports goods industry, for example, or with natural materials such as wood, paper, stone and wool, is to provide fresh and unusual approaches. And the ﬁ rst task is to understand the unique characteristics and potential of a range of different materials. In collaboration with artists, the BMW designers create sculptures, for example, out of stone, fold
paper origami ﬁ gures and study the ﬁ ne art of calligraphy. They laminate wood and emboss leather. In part, the workshops are about acquiring knowledge of materials and their natural limits ‒ the maximum pliability of wood, for example. But they also serve as sources of inspiration and show the usefulness of innovative construction materials for the future of vehicle design. The fruits of this research ﬁ rst appear before the general public in the form of concept cars. The BMW Concept Coupé, for example, reﬂ ects an investigation of the origami folding technique.
While this concept car from pays homage to BMW’s Mille Miglia victory in , it also demonstrates the possible future of lightweight construction with an origami-like treatment of sheet metal. The GINA Light Visionary Model from explores the possibilities of an outer skin made from elastic material. Stretched over a movable frame, the fabric skin is seamless and yet has visible stitching. The various functions concealed underneath are only activated when needed and remain invisible the rest of the time. Work on concept cars also marks the beginning of a dialogue with the engineers. Together with the designers, they
examine technical feasibility and consider various production methods. In some cases ‒ like with the convex and concave deformation of body sheets ‒ this is the key to making decisive progress. Many ideas developed by these pioneering designers have been implemented in the new BMW Series. Like the materials found in the interior or the way different surfaces are joined together. The instrument panel and interior trim are merged in a ﬂ uid and overlapping fashion. This “layering” design creates a modern and light sense of space.
Thanks to their work with natural materials and in art workshops, the creative minds at BMW Advanced Design are able to keep evolving new ideas that often feature in subsequent BMW production models.
BMW ConnectedDrive In touch with your world.
BMW CONNECTED DRIVE – FOR MORE CONVENIENCE, INFOTAINMENT AND SAFETY. Wherever your journey may lead, you can stay in touch with BMW ConnectedDrive*. Its innovative functions provide optimum integration between the driver, vehicle and the world outside ‒ anytime, anywhere. Here is an introduction to just a few of the features for more convenience, infotainment and safety. Further information on all the benefits BMW ConnectedDrive has to offer is available online at www.bmw.com/ConnectedDrive
Our world is becoming more connected every day. BMW drivers are used to the fact that their vehicle and their world are linked ‒ that they can request information, communicate via telephone or email and always be up to date while they’re on the go. The BMW ConnectedDrive concept encompasses all the services and innovative technologies that network BMW vehicles and their passengers with the world outside, including the trafﬁ c around.
Convenience. These ingenious BMW ConnectedDrive innovations include helpful services like the Park Assistant. Such technologies ensure that every drive in your BMW is always as relaxing as possible.
Rear View camera. The Rear View camera clearly shows the area behind the vehicle on the Control Display. It provides a better view when reversing in parking situations at speeds below km/h. In models with a tow bar, the Rear View camera features an extra zoom function (available in conjunction with Park Distance Control and a navigation system).
Comfort Access, including exterior door handle illumination. This system allows you to unlock, lock and start your BMW without inserting the key and it includes vicinity lighting in the exterior door handles. All you need is the remote control in your pocket, which transmits an identiﬁ cation signal to the car. Simply touch the door handle or boot lid and the BMW unlocks or locks as required. Similarly, a touch of the Start/Stop button is all it takes to start the engine. The Comfort Access system can also be used to remotely close the roof on convertible models.
Park Assistant. This optional driver assistance system makes parallel parking easier. When travelling at speeds below km/h, the system measures any parking gaps the vehicle passes. When a large enough gap has been found, the Park Assistant will do the steering, while the driver continues to operate the accelerator and brake pedals – supported by acoustic signals and instructions in the Control Display (not available with / R tyres).
Revolutionising mobile networking. The BMW Vision ConnectedDrive is a visionary roadster with a design that exhilarates from the very ﬁ rst glance. Its dynamic, ﬂ owing contours lead the eye from the striking front and along the stretched bonnet of this extraordinary vehicle ‒ a synthesis of exterior and interior. Each of the three levels of the interior stands for one of three BMW ConnectedDrive components ‒ convenience, infotainment and safety. The accompanying functions and controls are illuminated in different colours, which literally radiate a pulsating array of information. More information about this concept vehicle and further research projects is available in the new Future Lab.
Park Distance Control (PDC). The Park Distance Control option from BMW ConnectedDrive aids parking and manoeuvring in conﬁ ned spaces. An acoustic signal and visual indicator (only in conjunction with a navigation system) warn of approaching obstacles to the front and rear of the vehicle. Objects are detected by ultrasonic sensors in the bumpers.
