Two new M-mode buttons are placed conveniently on the centre console – like those found in the BMW M8 – it provides easier access to driving system settings: ROAD, SPORT, and TRACK.

ROAD and SPORT modes come with a standard set of driver assistance and safety features; examples are collision warning and blind-spot monitoring systems. While the unique M View Head-Up Display will only be activated when engaged in SPORT mode.

TRACK mode is specifically designed for race circuits as the comfort and safety functions are deactivated, allowing you to enjoy the M driving experience fully.
