Driving Assist Plus not only includes the Driving Assist systems, Lane Departure Warning, and Approach Warning with City Brake Activation, but also the Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function.

Active Cruise Control maintains a speed determined by the driver, as well as the distance to the car ahead, at speeds of up to 210 km/h. 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 a vehicle ahead brakes suddenly, the BMW responds immediately if the Approach 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.


The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display projects all information relevant to the journey directly into the driver's field of vision, thereby allowing them to fully concentrate on driving.

The display includes data such as the current speed, navigation tips, Speed Limit Info incl. no-overtaking indicator, telephone and entertainment lists, along with information and warnings from the various driver assist systems.

The icons projected onto the windscreen are displayed in a particularly high resolution and in full colour. The image's projection appears as if it were 2.3 m in front of the vehicle. This, in combination with optimal positioning, allows the information to be read quickly, conveniently and with minimal distraction.

The brightness of the projection automatically adjusts to suit the external light conditions, with different displays for day and night, and the height of the display can also be adjusted. Furthermore, the driver can also select which information to display in addition to the current speed and warnings from the driver assist systems.


The fully automatic Park Assist represents the latest generation of parking comfort in a BMW. In this generation, the system selects the forward or reverse gear, takes control of steering and automatically accelerates or brakes as necessary.
Prior to the parking manoeuvre, the driver merely has to turn on the indicator and then keep the PDC button pressed during the entire parking procedure, along with monitoring the surrounding area with the help of the automatically activated Rear View camera. Once the manoeuvre has been completed, the system selects the P driving position. When travelling at speeds of up to 35 km/h and with a maximum distance of 1.5 m from the row of parked cars, the ultrasound sensors in the BMW use the Control Display to show potential gaps where it would be possible to parallel park in a roadside space.


Discover excellent vision, even at night with BMW Night Vision with dynamic light spot. It makes it easy to identify people and large animals at night – even at a significant distance.
An infrared camera mounted on the kidney grille transmits images from the front of the vehicle onto the Control Display. The image allows the driver to identify people and animals at a distance of up to about 300 metres.

As soon as the infrared system detects pedestrians or animals in the dark, it directs one of two separately controlled dynamic light spots onto them, without any unpleasant dazzling effect. This light ensures that both the driver and the illuminated person approaching are effectively warned of a potentially hazardous situation.

The driver receives additional warnings in critical situations via the regular display and the BMW Head-Up Display. A flashing red icon (animal or person) is displayed if there is an acute risk of collision. An acoustic alarm is also sounded and the brakes are primed for optimum readiness. The monitor is automatically activated when the vehicle is started. The system even emits a warning when the imaging display has not been activated. BMW Night Vision with dynamic light spot is an innovation from BMW ConnectedDrive.


Surround View includes the Top View, Rear View and Panorama Side View camera systems. Cameras in the exterior mirrors and two wide-angle cameras, one in the front and one in the rear, enable a 360°-panorama surround view as well as a panorama view of the area in front and behind the vehicle.
Top View captures a 360°-panorama view of the area surrounding the vehicle and uses this data to computer-generate a bird's-eye view to facilitate manoeuvring. The wide-angle Side View camera between the double kidney grilles on the front and the wide-angle Rear View camera enable a panorama view of the area in front and behind the vehicle. The Cross Traffic Assist helps the driver by first displaying yellow beams on the side edges of the image as well as a yellow warning triangle in the presence of crossing traffic.

The camera systems are activated when the car is put into reverse or the PDC button or Side View button is pressed. The images captured by the cameras are shown on the Control Display. The driver can choose between the Rear View, Top View or Panorama Side View camera. The Side View function is automatically deactivated when the car moves at speeds of 15 km/h or more.
