EVERYTHING IN VIEW.

Intelligent Vision.

Wherever your journey takes you, you should always keep everything in view. With the innovative vision assistant technologies this is quite straightforward. They help you in unclear situations and guarantee you the best possible visibility at night. See more with your BMW.

Side View

See what’s coming sooner. With Side View you can “peek around the corner” at blind junctions or exits while your line of sight is still actually obstructed. Two cameras built into the front wheel arches enable you to observe crossing traffic. You can see the video image in the Control Display and thus keep an eye on everything.

BMW HEAD-UP DISPLAY.

Experience highlight

Always know what turn to take next. And that’s not all. While you concentrate on the road, the full-colour BMW Head-Up Display projects all the data relevant to your journey directly into your line of sight: this includes information such as current speed, collision warnings, Speed Limit Info or control messages. Without having to constantly switch your gaze from road to instrument panel, you travel in greater safety and comfort.

Speed Limit Info incl. no-overtaking indicator

Speed Limit Info incl. no-overtaking indicator shows you the current speed restriction as well as any details of overtaking bans that may apply in your instrument panel or in the Head-Up Display if fitted. A special camera also captures all the relevant traffic signs. A camera mounted in the interior mirror correctly identifies any additional pictographic signs (lorries, trailers, etc.). You can therefore devote your full attention to the road and other road users.

BMW NIGHT VISION.

Experience highlight

A revolution in safe driving at night: BMW Night Vision with Dynamic Light Spot makes people and larger animals in the dark recognisable in thermal imaging – even at a significant distance – and illuminates them selectively. As a result, you get a particularly clear view of everything that you shouldn’t miss at night. Should a critical situation arise, a warning is shown in the display and in the BMW Head-Up Display. In the event of acute danger, a blinking red symbol (animal or person) is displayed. An acoustic warning is also heard and the brakes are primed for optimum responsiveness.

High-Beam Assistant

More light means more safety. The High-Beam Assistant automatically takes care of raising and dipping the beam when you’re driving your BMW at night. The camera installed close to the interior mirror monitors the traffic situation and reacts immediately to any light sources at distances of up to 1,000 metres away. Depending on the visibility, the system decides when the headlights should be switched to high beam.

BMW Selective Beam

BMW Selective Beam makes night-time driving even more pleasant and safe for you. It provides excellent visibility in the dark without dazzling other drivers. The system detects other road-users and selectively excludes them from the high-beam headlight distribution. Beam ranges of 400 m ensure early detection of risks.
