Engine and chassis

Fast changer.

The six-speed transmission in the BMW 3 Series Touring.

Fitted as standard, the six-speed manual transmission directs the full force of the engine's power immediately and precisely to the rear wheels, while the greater spread between the six gears and short-throw shifts of just 55 mm allow for unprecedented sporting dynamics. These qualities are enhanced even further by the automatic six-speed transmission with Steptronic to produce sprint-style acceleration.
