The actual driving experience is less stressful, too. A portfolio of electronic-assistance systems ensures you arrive at your destination cool, calm, and collected. One that’s really worth its salt inside our gridlocked South African cities is Traffic Jam Assist.
It automatically maintains the desired distance from the vehicle ahead and regulates the car’s speed down to standstill, as well as providing active steering support, using stereo cameras, ultrasound, and radar. The vehicle is, therefore, able to help the driver stay in the correct lane, as long as the driver keeps at least one hand on the wheel.
The revolutionary new Lane Keep Assist with Active Side Collision Protection makes its debut in the BMW 5 Series. This system keeps a watchful eye on the lane markings and the area around the car, and actively helps the driver to avoid looming collisions by applying corrective steering inputs. So, even if the thought of that latest merger or acquisition momentarily gets the better of your attention, you can be sure the BMW 5 Series always has its attention fully on the road ahead.
The all-new BMW 5 Series is finished off with other luxuries — such as the
third-generation BMW Head-up Display (featuring a 70% larger projection surface), noise-absorbing interior materials, and the option of a diamond-domed Bowers & Wilkins sound system — making it the ultimate accessory for your life lived in the executive fast lane.
