  9. 9. BRILLIANT, FROM FRONT TO BACK. No detail is taken too lightly. Proof that no element goes unnoticed by our designers: the personality of the      Series Coupe is immediately evident even in the new light assemblies at the front and rear. A more “concentrated” look is the fi rst thing you’ll notice when facing the vehicle head-on. The unique “eyebrow” design is bolstered by the Xenon Adaptive Headlights with LED accents that confi dently pierce the night air. Corona headlight-rings add another BMW signature element. In the rear, newly designed L-shape taillights lend a sportier look, especially when complemented by brilliant LED lighting. The  Series Coupe even adds active safety into this illuminating equation: the Xenon Adaptive Headlights come equipped with integrated Cornering Lights that swivel to cast light on every turn, while Adaptive Brakelights illuminate even more brightly when greater stopping force is used.

Aerodynamics also plays an important part in Effi cientDynamics. The new, innovative Air Curtain in the    i front fascia, for example, channels the air through two ducts in the front air dam, then diverts it around the front wheel arches. Though each duct is only four inches long and one inch wide, this improves airfl ow, reduces turbulence and increases effi ciency.

Driving requires total concentration – and a steady, secure seating position that allows you to interact intuitively with your vehicle’s controls at all times, from the steering wheel to the Navigation system to the brake pedal. No surprise, then, that the comfort and support of the  Series Coupe’s seats are an important part of the driving experience. In fact, BMW seats are regarded by experts as a gold standard in terms of comfort, safety features Sport seats provide a seating position that makes it easy to drive long distances and sportiness. while remaining completely at ease.

This air is then accelerated and forced out at even higher speed across thefront wheels, where it creates an “air curtain.” Although it seems a small, simple detail, this innovationreduces air resistance – which, in turn, leads to an improvement in stability and a reduction in fuelconsumption. It’s a great example of how even unassuming BMW components can have a larger effect.

At BMW, we create dynamic vehicles that thrill you with quick acceleration, predictable handling and reassuring control. We are also busy fi nding innovative fuels and technologies that help preserve the environment while delivering legendary performance. This is what we refer to as Effi cientDynamics.
