ACTIVE CRUISE CONTROL WITH STOP & GO FUNCTION.

Active cruise control with Stop & Go function, including radar-based approach control warning with full and targeted braking offers the option of greater comfort and safety in traffic jams.
The system maintains a speed preselected by the driver, as well as the distance to the driver ahead. The vehicle takes over accelerating and braking and keeps the predetermined distance to the car ahead even in slow-moving traffic and down to a stand-still in traffic jams. If the car approaches the vehicle ahead of it, or if another vehicle enters the lane, the system precisely adjusts the speed to take the other vehicle into account. It can be activated at speeds of up to 210 km/h.
The Stop & Go function not only automatically regulates speed down to standstill, it also automatically accelerates back up to the desired speed within a limited time frame as soon as traffic flow allows.
If a vehicle ahead brakes suddenly, the BMW responds immediately when the approach control warning is activated. The system operates in steps. A warning symbol is first displayed, then the symbol begins blinking and an acoustic warning is emitted, and finally the brakes are applied.

PARKING ASSIST.

The Park Assist makes parking parallel and perpendicular to the road easier. Whether activated or not, the system measures potential spaces – even tight parallel parking spaces – while driving past at a low speed (below 35 km/h) and at a maximum distance of 1.5 m from the row of parked cars.

When a large enough gap has been found, the driver simply turns on the indicator and the Park Assist takes over the steering, while the driver continues to operate the accelerator, gears and brakes. The system also shows supplementary instructions in the Control Display and additional acoustic signals.

As the car slowly approaches an obstacle, the Park Assist is automatically activated via the function ''Auto PDC'' (Automatic Park Distance Control). The system's enhanced functionality includes supporting the driver when parking in spaces that are perpendicular to the road. The PDC also emits a warning signal if the car becomes too close to obstacles on either side. So the driver can stay relaxed and enjoy greater safety while parking.

NAVIGATION SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL.

The Navigation System Professional features a sleek design and a superior range of services. It delivers a simple and easy-to-use navigation system that is seamlessly integrated into the BMW, with iDrive operating concept and iDrive Touch Controller included.

The system comprises the hands-free facility with USB interface and voice control and the Radio BMW Professional with DVD drive, as well as 20 GB memory for audio files. It also facilitates the use of Real Time Traffic Information. The built-in 8.8" LCD colour display with split screen function (main and supplementary screen) is designed for optimal readability and clarity.

  • iDrive Touch Controller

    The iDrive Touch Controller with direct menu control buttons, eight functional bookmarks and voice control makes operation intuitive by allowing you to enter the address of your destination in handwriting on its touch-sensitive surface. Thanks to the three-dimensional map display that makes use of satellite images as a map background , with photo-realistic depictions of selected sights, navigation becomes an exciting visual experience.

SPEED LIMIT INFO.

SPEED LIMIT INFO.

Speed Limit Info including no-overtaking indicator helps you put safety first. It shows the current speed limit in the instrument cluster, as well as information regarding no-overtaking zones. This is shown on the Info Display in the instrument cluster.

A camera integrated in the rear-view mirror detects relevant traffic signs. A control unit then processes and displays this information together with data from the navigation system. By utilising other features in the car, even variable speed limits – such as those that apply during wet conditions or at certain times of day – can sometimes also be shown.

BACKUP CAMERA.

The backup camera allows the driver to view the area behind the car in the Control Display while manoeuvring and parking. The backup camera enhances visibility when reversing at speeds below 15 km/h, for example when parking. The guidelines and coloured obstacle markings that appear in the Control Display show the driver if the selected parking spot is big enough to accommodate the car – which makes parking easier. When the steering wheel is at full lock, the system displays red turning circle lines and green guide lines that adapt to the steering wheel movements. The backup camera is automatically deactivated after ten metres or when the speed exceeds 15 km/h. In conjunction with the trailer tow hitch, the rear view camera makes the approach when hooking up a trailer easier thanks to a practical zoom function.

ANTI-DAZZLE HIGH-BEAM ASSIST.

The High-Beam Assist relieves the driver at night by automatically activating the high-beam and low-beam headlights depending on the presence of oncoming traffic or vehicles in front. The lights are also automatically dimmed when street lighting is sufficient. A camera located near the interior mirror detects the headlights of other vehicles at a distance of up to 1,000 metres. Rear lights of a vehicle ahead are detected at a distance of 500 metres. When the High-Beam Assist is activated and an oncoming vehicle approaches or the rear lights of a vehicle in front are detected, the system automatically switches between high and low beam.
