Active Cruise Control

Active Cruise Control is an extension and enhancement of conventional cruise control. This system allows you to maintain a pre-selected speed on the road, and also monitors the distance between your car and the vehicle ahead of you. The radar sensors and control unit are combined to form one system fitted at the front end of the car beneath the bumper. The particular benefit offered by this system is that when your BMW catches up with a vehicle ahead, the system will automatically slow down your car and keep a specific distance you have chosen in advance (four different settings possible).
