Thanks to the IconicSounds Sport feature, you can now enjoy that familiar thrill of the Ultimate Driving Machine in any driving mode. As a result, when you're in the vehicle you will always be able to hear the engine sound that matches the current vehicle dynamics. You can also adjust the intensity of the experience to suit your own preferences.


Select the desired mode using the Driving Experience Control and the IconicSounds Sport feature will pick out the perfect engine sound to match the driving mode – no matter where your preferences lie!

This feature enhances the acoustic response of your BMW for an even more emotive experience of your vehicle’s sporty driving style. You can also use the "Engine sound" setting to configure the intensity of the sound independently of the Driving Experience Control, or switch it off completely – the choice is yours!
