BMW 7 Series: Adaptive chassis

Concept

This system reduces undesirable vehicle motion when using a dynamic driving style or traveling on uneven road surfaces.

General information

The driving dynamics and driving comfort are enhanced depending on the road surface condition and driving style.

Tuning

The system offers different shock absorber settings ranging from comfortable travel to dynamic driving.

The damping settings are assigned to the different driving modes of the Driving Dynamics Control.

Executive Drive Pro

Concept

Executive Drive Pro is an actively controlled chassis. The system increases driving comfort and minimizes the lateral tilt when driving around curves.

General information

For active control, this system uses the available information, for instance from the navigation system, the Driving style analysis and the camerabased look-ahead data.

This information influences the control of the following systems, especially in ADAPTIVE driving mode:

  • Adaptive chassis.
  • Active roll stabilization.

This further increases the agility and comfort of the vehicle.

The function may be restricted if the navigation data is invalid, outdated or not available, for example.

Active roll stabilization

Concept

The system reduces the lateral tilt of the vehicle that occurs during rapid driving in curves or during quick evasive maneuvers.

General information

The lateral tilt of the vehicle is balanced out by permanent adjustment on the front and rear axles. The vehicle is thus always stabilized.

Agility and driving comfort are increased under all driving conditions.

Tuning

The system offers different settings ranging from comfortable travel to dynamic driving.

The tunings are assigned to the different driving modes of the Driving Dynamics Control.
