The 8-speed M Steptronic Sport transmission with Drivelogic combines sportiness and comfort. The particularly fine increments between gears and the optional extremely rapid shifts facilitate optimum responsiveness. Its high level of driving comfort and fuel-efficient design are ideal for everyday driving. Particularly at high speeds, the eighth gear reduces engine speed, in turn decreasing both fuel consumption and engine noise. Sporty manual shifting is possible in S mode by using the M gear selector switch or the shift paddles on the steering wheel. In manual S mode, M Steptronic Sport transmission does not automatically shift up, so that the engine reaches max speeds when necessary. In this way, optimal use is made of the engine power, you can even shift at top speeds. It is also possible to shift down several gears. Via the Drivelogic function, the driver can select one of three shifting modes at the touch of a button: from efficient and comfortable, to sporty, to racetrack characteristics with extra-short shifting times and a highly sporty ride feeling.
