BMW has created a way for you to take even better control of your BMW while driving it. This is through the new Adaptive M Suspension. With this new feature, BMW has effectively engineered a way for you to adjust the ride of your BMW to meet all of your driving needs, no matter what they are. There are different modes that you can use to achieve these goals and using the system is pretty easy once you are behind the wheel.

The Different Modes

The three different modes that you can choose from include comfort mode, sport mode, and sport mode plus. If you are looking for a more relaxed ride, then comfort mode is the one to choose. With this mode, the dampers are balanced out on uneven roads. At the same time, the vibrations are lessened for a smoother experience on the road. These two combined make for a very smooth ride that will allow you to relax and enjoy the journey even more. On the other end, if you are looking for something a bit more sport based, then the sport mode is calling your name. While using this mode, the dampers are tightened and you get a more athletic suspension.

Additionally, the sport mode provides you with a dynamic suspension setting that results in maximum traction for your driving experience. This mode is the one to choose if you are looking for a bit more action on the road and want to live a bit more on the dangerous side. It you want something a bit more aggressive, then you should opt for the sport plus mode that takes it one step further.

How It Works

The great thing about this suspension system is that you get to decide how you want to drive your vehicle. If you want a smooth ride, you can absolutely do that. However, you can also drive it like it is a real sports car and get all of the feelings of intensity that come along with it. The BMW models that come with this allow you with a lot more flexibility and you can change it up based on your needs and the situation. To allow this to happen, there are highly sophisticated sensors on the BMW that will measure the driving conditions for you. The sensors will detect things like the road conditions, your speed, corner angles on the road and more. The sensors work continuously to help you determine the best driving mode. You can choose to let the system determine the mode for you or you can manually change it as needed. This system is currently available on many BMW models and all of the BMW M models on the market.
