Efficiently dynamic; dynamically efficient

Introduction

In 2012, BMW launched the F30 – the widely anticipated successor to the all-popular E90 3-Series. Since early 2012, the Bavarian brand took the leap of technological faith, and introduced the ActiveHybrid series – first on the 5-Series, then on the flagship 7, and subsequently onto the F30 3-Series.

And while environmentalists and green motoring fans swoon over the ActiveHybrid range, BMW took the liberty to further its efficiency footprint by developing the EfficientDynamics, perhaps a “not-so-green” way of saving the earth, but still beneficial to your fuel pocket money.

We took a ride in the latest BMW 320i EfficientDynamics, where we got to experience the latest lightweight technology and features set out by the German marque.
