BMW ConnectedDrive Driver Assistance systems in the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer.

Numerous innovative technologies support you in various ways and guarantee the highest level of comfort and safety. So you can focus on one of the important things in life – carefree driving pleasure.

Traffic Jam Assist.

Traffic Jam Assist takes the burden off the driver on motorways and in other monotonous traffic situations. At speeds of up to 60 km/h, the system lets the car simply "glide along" with the other cars in dense traffic situations, making traffic jams less stressful. 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. The vehicle is able to help the driver stay in the correct lane.
Traffic Jam Assist is included in the optional Driving Assistant Plus.


The full-colour BMW Head-up Display projects all relevant driving information into the driver's field of vision, so they can remain focused on the road. The display includes data such as the current speed and - depending on the equipment - navigation tips, Speed Limit Info including no-overtaking indicator, telephone and entertainment lists, along with information and warnings from the various driver assistance systems.
The symbols, which are projected onto a retractable panel above the instrument cluster, are depicted in full colour so that the traffic signs look realistic. The panel's slightly tinted colour increases the contrast.
The brightness of the projection automatically adjusts to outside light conditions, and can also be manually set to reflect individual preferences. The day and night displays also feature different designs. The driver can select which information to display in addition to current speed and the warnings from the driver assistance systems. Visibility of the display is limited when wearing polarised sunglasses.

Drive Assist Plus.

Drive Assist Plus produces a clear improvement in safety and comfort. It includes the Approach and Pedestrian Warning with City Brake Activation and Lane Departure Warning, High-Beam Assistant, Speed Limit Info, camera-based Cruise Control with Stop&Go function and Traffic Jam Assist.
Please note: This function can be limited by darkness and fog.

Park Assist.

The Park Assist package combines Park Assist and Park Distance Control (PDC) in the front and rear. Together, the two systems ensure easy parking with increased safety at all times.
The Park Assistant makes parallel parking easier. When the system is activated, it will measure any parking gaps while the driver passes by slowly (under 21mph). When a large enough gap has been found, the driver simply turns on the indicator and the Park Assistant 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.
Park Distance Control (PDC) at the front and rear makes parking in and pulling out of tight spaces much easier. An acoustic signal warns about potential obstacles, reducing the danger of damage while manoeuvring. Ultrasound sensors at the vehicle's front and rear determine the position of potential obstacles.

Reversing Assist camera.

The Reversing Assist camera allows the driver to view the area behind the car in the Control Display while manoeuvring and parking. It also allows for a better view when reversing at speeds below 9mph, for example when parking.
The track lines and coloured obstacle markings that appear in the Control Display show the driver if a parking spot is suitable − and assist the driver if this is the case. When the steering wheel is at full lock, red turning circle lines appear, as well as green driving track lines, which adapt to every movement of the steering wheel.
The reversing assistant camera is automatically deactivated after ten metres or when the vehicle travels faster than 9mph. In conjunction with the tow bar, the Reversing Assist camera makes hooking up a trailer easier with a practical zoom function.

Navigation System Plus with iDrive Touch Controller.

The Navigation System Plus including BMW Head-up Display brings together several useful components: a navigation system with built-in 8.8 inch LCD colour display, radio, MP3 player, RDS double tuner and an instrument cluster with high-resolution 5.7 inch TFT display. Route guidance is provided via an arrow or map display, along with spoken instructions. The latest generation navigation system is operated intuitively via voice control or via the iDrive Touch Controller with direct menu control buttons and six active tiles representing Navigation, Media, Communication, ConnectedDrive, My Vehicle and Messaging.
Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) is included as standard. This provides precise information on the current traffic situation. Using data from movement profiles from the cellular network, and GPS data from vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports, it knows the fastest route and guides you along it. It provides updates on the traffic situation in real time, and to the nearest 100m. 
It also calculates any likely delays and recommends detours, and will keep you informed at all times so you can avoid tailbacks and road closures. Wherever your journey takes you – motorways, major roads, country roads or inner-city routes – Real Time Traffic Information gets you there faster.
