Driver assistance systems in the BMW 4 Series.

Our driver assistance systems give you innovative and clever support and set standards in terms of safety and comfort.

Head-up Display.

Full colour BMW Head-up Display projects information such as current speed, navigation notifications and entertainment information directly onto the windscreen into your line of sight. Day and night settings plus the ability to edit what’s displayed lets you focus fully on the road ahead.

Camera systems.

BMW’s sophisticated camera technology allows you to manoeuvre your BMW safely into the smallest of spaces. Park Distance Control (fitted as standard), Surround-view and Reversing Assist camera all keep you fully in control when parking, even at night.

Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function.

BMW’s Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go constantly measures the distance between your vehicle and the one in front to maintain your desired distance. The Stop&Go functionality not only regulates speed down to a standstill, but accelerates back up to the desired speed as traffic conditions improve, keeping you safe when driving in dense traffic.

Dynamic Safety.

When a critical situation arises, such as under severe braking, BMW’s Dynamic Safety system pretensions the front belts and closes both the side windows and the sliding roof. Better yet to avoid such situations, so the Attentiveness Assistant monitors your behaviour for signs of fatigue. Irregular driving behaviour alerts the system, causing a notification to appear in the control panel, suggesting you take a break.

Glare-free High-beam Assistant.

Included with Adaptive Headlights and LED Headlights, High-beam Assistant continuously illuminates the road at night with full beam without dazzling other road users. A sensor located in the rear view mirror holder monitors oncoming traffic, shaping the light beam so as not to dazzle other road users.
As the driver, you benefit from the power and range of the permanently activated high beam, spotting hazards earlier, and minimising fatigue during night driving.

Speed Limit Display.

Speed Limit Display including a no-overtaking warning show in the instrument cluster and in the Head-up Display, if fitted. A rain sensor is incorporated, so variable speed limits in wet conditions are also registered, keeping you well informed of the road ahead, whatever the weather.

Drive Assist.

Drive Assist combines the camera-based lane departure warning and collision warning systems to detect lane markings and warn of unintended lane changes with steering wheel vibrations. The camera also detects pedestrians, warning if there is the risk of a collision, and if necessary applying the brakes. Above 9 mph it will warn of potential collisions with vehicles in front, as well as conditioning the brakes for a faster response.

iDrive Touch.

The iDrive Touch Controller lets you control the iDrive system with one hand. Thanks to the touchpad integrated in the Controller, it’s easy to enter information such as destinations for the navigation system. You can also use it to access a wide range of functions and settings, simply by scrolling through lists. All functions operated using the Controller can be viewed in the Control Display in full colour.
