The multifunctional steering wheel lets you control your most commonly used vehicle features safely and conveniently. You don't need to take your hands from the wheel, and you can concentrate fully on the surrounding traffic.
The multifunction keys are ergonomically integrated in the steering wheel and programmed to activate often-used features. So instead of reaching over to the dashboard, you can for example control the volume of your sound system, change radio stations, accept or make a hands-free telephone call or, depending on the model, operate the automatic air conditioning (e.g. air recirculation, steering wheel heating) and the cruise control. Two additional keys can be freely programmed to your favourite functions (model-dependent).
The keys are arranged in the typical BMW way to maximise ease of use. The most important driving functions are on the left and the right is usually reserved for the comfort functions.
