Optional Driving Assistant Professional includes Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Steering and Lane Control Assistant, Lane Keeping Assistant with Active Side Collision Protection
Optional BMW Night Vision system


INTELLIGENT NETWORKING

Transmission controller networks with navigation system to adapt shift parameters intelligently (for example, controller avoids unnecessary gear shifts between two corners that follow in quick succession, or controller downshifts early when approaching an intersection to use engine braking to slow car)
Auto Start Stop adapts to driving situation based on navigation data and by use of cameras and radar sensors of the optional driver assistance systems to prevent inefficient engine shutdown – for example when stopping briefly at junctions with yield signs. The movement of vehicles ahead is registered in order to determine the ideal moment for stopping and starting the engine.
Coasting function efficient enhanced. When traveling at speeds between 9 – 99 mph, powertrain is decoupled as soon as the driver lifts off the accelerator. The switch to this “sail” mode only takes place in driving situations in which it appears worthwhile and which doesn’t compromise comfort or performance. If the accelerator is released very suddenly for instance, the powertrain stays connected in order to use the engine’s drag torque to decelerate.


PREMIUM UPGRADE OPTIONS

Climate seats for driver and front passenger
Harman Kardon Surround Sound System with 16 speakers
Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System with 16-channel amplifier with 1,375 watts output, and 16 partly illuminated speakers

Transmission controller networks with navigation system to adapt shift parameters intelligently.. This is also damn cool, so it knows the road you are on and can adapt itself for optimal driving. I like that!
