However, close inspection reveals that they’ve gone above and beyond to make their models safer for every passenger. Virtually every model in the lineup offers the following features as standard features or available upgrades:

  • Driving Assistance Plus Package – This next-generation safety package lets you enjoy partially-automated driving assistance with Active Driving Assistant Pro. Along with Extended Traffic Jam Assistant, this technology can help take your mind off of driving’s least enjoyable scenarios and help you get more out of your time on the road.

Performance: The Heart of Every BMW

While other brands like Mercedes-Benz embraced a single-minded focus on comfort or ride quality, BMW established itself in the luxury market by creating vehicles that seamlessly combine the best of performance with practical, everyday drivability. That legacy is alive and stronger than ever today. Even compared to other luxury brands, BMW is recognized as a true leader in this area.  One just needs to look at the remarkable suite of engines offered on BMW luxury SUVs like the popular X5. And of course, the BMW M Series doesn’t just include some of the fastest BMW models; it includes some of the fastest vehicles ever made! The next time someone asks you, “Is a BMW a luxury car?” you can tell them that a BMW is the luxury car for dedicated performance enthusiasts.
