SEAMLESSLY CONNECTED.

Connectivity and driver assistance in the new BMW X3.


Stay connected with the outside world while on the move, use exclusive services and smart apps, make calls and send emails or surf the Internet via WiFi – the new BMW X3 establishes a class in connectivity and comfort. The innovative operating concept creates a perfect unity between driver and vehicle at every moment. What results is a driving experience that sets benchmarks by paying attention to your needs and supporting the move towards autonomous driving. In addition, ultra modern driver assistance systems define new levels in safety and reduced strain for the driver.

Pioneering operating concept.

The new operating concept of the BMW X3 inspires with outstandingly intuitive user guidance. Clearly arranged controls and extremely short distances between them and the steering wheel take the driving experience to a new level. Specific functions can be operated via the intelligent BMW voice control or BMW gesture control. Movements such as “swiping” or “pointing” in the recognition area above the front centre console are all it takes to control phone calls or the navigation system.

BMW Head-Up Display.

The full-colour optional BMW Head-Up Display projects all information relevant to the journey directly into the driver's field of vision, thus allowing them to fully concentrate on driving. Information such as the current speed, navigation directions, the optional Speed Limit Info including no-overtaking indicator, along with telephone and entertainment lists are displayed.

Digital Cockpit.

The multifunctional instrument display in Black Panel technology provides an impressive visualisation of the driving experience. Three different modes and their specific displays – each with their own colour scheme and graphic style – can be displayed in the instrument cluster: ECO PRO, COMFORT and SPORT.

BMW Connected.

BMW Connected is your personal mobility assistant that allows you to reach your destinations relaxed and on time, and it now connects you more seamlessly than ever before – regardless of where you are. With the optional Remote 3D View, you can examine the surroundings of your new BMW X3 on your smartphone in a 3D display. Furthermore, Hazard Preview warns you in real time of possible hazards and helps you navigate safely to your destination.

BMW WiFi hotspot preparation.

The equipment includes a built-in WiFi hotspot using the LTE standard, which allows for a paid internet connection. The vehicle is connected via the built-in SIM card with a fee-based hotspot plan from a service provider.

On-Street Parking Information.

On-Street Parking Information helps you to find an empty parking space in cities*. In the BMW navigation system map, streets with a high probability of free parking spaces are indicated in green and parking spaces are highlighted in blue.

*Feature currently only available in London, Birmingham, Sheffield, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast and Bristol

BMW Connected+.

BMW Connected+ collates customised information so that you have it at the right time and all in one place. Whether you wish to share arrival times with friends and family, plan petrol stops or transfer the locations of meetings stored in your smartphone diary to your navigation system, the new BMW X3 is ahead of its time.

SO CONNECTED, YOU'RE FREE.

BMW ConnectedDrive stands for the intelligent interaction between vehicle, driver and outside world. Enjoy more comfort, entertainment and the reassuring feeling of safety on all routes. Or to put it simply: more driving pleasure.
