BMW ConnectedDrive Drive Assist systems in the BMW X6.

The perfect partner. The BMW X6 makes life a whole lot easier for you. With intelligent systems that provide all the support you need. For example, the fully automatic Park Assist and Surround View help you to manoeuvre in tricky situations.

Driving Assistant Plus

Driving Assistant Plus not only includes the Drive Assist systems, Lane Departure Warning, and Approach Warning with City Brake Activation, but also the Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function and Traffic Jam Assist.
Active Cruise Control maintains a speed determined by the driver, as well as the distance to the car ahead, at speeds of up to 130mph. The vehicle takes over accelerating and braking and keeps the predetermined distance to the car ahead even in slow-moving traffic and down to a standstill in traffic jams. If a vehicle ahead suddenly brakes, the BMW responds immediately if the Approach Warning is activated. The system operates in steps. A warning symbol is first displayed, then the symbol begins blinking and an acoustic warning is emitted, and finally the brakes are applied.
Traffic Jam Assist takes the burden off the driver on motorways and in other monotonous traffic situations. At speeds of up to 40mph, the system lets the car simply “glide along” with the other cars in dense traffic situations, making traffic jams less stressful. It automatically maintains the desired distance from the vehicle ahead and regulates the car's speed down to standstill, all the while providing active steering support.


The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display projects all the relevant information directly into the driver's field of vision, thereby allowing them to fully concentrate on driving. The display includes data such as the current speed, navigation tips, Speed Limit Info incl. no-overtaking indicator, telephone and entertainment lists, along with information and warnings from the various driver assistance systems. Please note, information displayed depends on optional equipment fitted to the vehicle; the full-colour BMW Head-up Display is not fully visible if you are wearing polarised sunglasses.
The icons projected onto the windscreen are displayed in a particularly high resolution and in full colour. The image's projection appears as if it were 2.3 m in front of the vehicle. This, in combination with optimal positioning, allows the information to be read quickly, conveniently and with minimal distraction.
The brightness of the projection automatically adjusts to suit the external light conditions, with different displays for day and night, and the height of the display can also be adjusted. Furthermore, the driver can also select which information to display in addition to the current speed and warnings from the driver assistance systems.

Park Assist.

The Park Assist makes parallel parking easier. Parking spaces of the right size can be displayed and selected using the Control Display. When the button is kept pressed down, the system actively supports the driver during parking, taking care of gear selection, steering, accelerating and braking.
The Park Assist makes it easier for you to find a suitable parking space and actively helps you park. Up to a speed of 22 mph and a maximum lateral distance of 1.5 m from the line of parked cars, ultrasound sensors in your BMW show you each potential parallel parking space in the Control Display.
Simply choose the space you want, activate the indicator and keep the Park Assist switch pressed down – it will actively help you park. It selects forward or reverse gear, guides the steering and automatically accelerates or brakes. Parking has never been more fun.

BMW Night Vision with Dynamic Light Spot.

Excellent vision, even at night. BMW Night Vision with Dynamic Light Spot makes it easy to identify people and large animals at night – even at a significant distance. An infrared camera mounted on the kidney grille transmits images from the front of the vehicle onto the Control Display. The image allows the driver to identify people and animals up to 300 metres.
As soon as the infrared system detects pedestrians or animals in the dark, it directs one of two separately controlled Dynamic Light Spots onto them, without any unpleasant dazzling effect. This light ensures that both the driver and the illuminated person approaching are effectively warned of a potentially hazardous situation.
The driver receives additional warnings in critical situations via the regular display and the BMW Head-Up Display. A flashing red icon (animal or person) is displayed if there is an acute risk of collision. An acoustic alarm is also sounded and the brakes are primed for optimum readiness. The monitor is automatically activated when the vehicle is started. The system even emits a warning when the imaging display has not been activated. BMW Night Vision with Dynamic Light Spot is an innovation from BMW ConnectedDrive.

Surround View.

Surround View includes the camera systems Top View, Rear View and Panorama Side View. Cameras in the exterior mirrors and two wide-angle cameras, one in the front and one in the rear, enable a 360° panorama surround view as well as a panorama view of the area in front and behind the vehicle.
Top View captures a 360° panorama view of the area surrounding the vehicle and uses this data to computer-generate a bird's-eye view to facilitate manoeuvring. The wide-angle Side View camera between the double kidney grilles on the front and the wide-angle Rear View camera enable a panorama view of the area in front and behind the vehicle. The Cross Traffic Assistant assists the driver by first displaying yellow beams on the side edges of the image as well as a yellow warning triangle in the presence of crossing traffic.
The camera systems are activated when the car is put into reverse or the PDC button or Side View button is pressed. The images captured by the cameras are shown on the Control Display. The driver can choose between the Rear View camera, Top View or Panorama Side View. The Side View function is automatically deactivated when the car moves at speeds of 10mph or more.
