Active hydraulically controlled stabilisers allow the Dynamic Drive suspension control system to reduce the vehicle's body roll when driving through curves or during sudden swerves. This increases comfort and agility, and makes steering even more precise. Ultimately, the driver can take full advantage of the tremendously high dynamic driving potential of the BMW M.
When driving straight ahead, the two halves of a stabiliser remain separate, so that the damping and suspension are not affected and can function optimally.
The system uses numerous sensors to analyse the driving situation and minimise body roll on curves in accordance with lateral acceleration. Active roll distribution between the front and rear axles mitigates critical driving situations. Due to M-specific calibration with a stronger roll momentum on the rear axle, the vehicle is characterised by increased dynamic driving characteristics. The vehicle reacts even more directly and actively to steering input thanks to targeted M-specific steering response and reaction to load changes.
