When you’re out enjoying your BMW on the highway, you want to be cruising. You want to set the speed and not having to worry about it when it comes to vehicles in front of you then having to reset cruise control. Well, that’s what BMW’s Active Cruise Control is all about, and that’s why we’re explaining those features to you for the uninitiated.

  • BMW Active Cruise Control allows you to set a speed that can be maintained while driving in unobstructed highway and road settings
  • The system will auto adapt to the pace of traffic on the road, so if there is a slower vehicle in front of you, it will act according to the options you set, which includes keeping a set distance, and reducing acceleration if needed
  • BMW Active Cruise Control also will apply the brakes and come to a full stop if it sense the vehicle in front is decelerating or making a stop, too

You’ll also auto accelerate when the vehicles in front of you begin to move again, and get back to your desired speed once the lane is clear
To learn more, feel free to come into BMW of El Paso, where we’d be happy to answer any questions you might have, and discuss all the technology onboard our vehicles in greater detail.
