Safety. Unparalleled safety with the latest BMW technology. The BMW X4 is equipped with cutting-edge technologies for every eventuality. Superb handling and inn ovative equipment come standard. BMW drivers benefit from the very latest technologies that provide optimal support at all tim es. You’ll feel safe and protected, no matter where your journey takes you. The BMW X4 stands out from the crowd for many reasons, not least due to its exceptional level of safety. Its extremely stable passenger cell offers the ultimate in protection and comfort on all trips, allowing the driver of the BMW X4 to c onfdently unleash its full dynamic potential. Should, for example, the vehicle ever lose its grip on the road for even a fraction of a second, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) assumes control by automatically compensating for the loss of traction, thus preventin g the vehicle from swerving. Innovation and technology26 |27 1 The Approach control warning with light city braking function helps the driver to avoid collisions. It provides a warning at speeds of up to 60 km/h.  Standard equipment  Optional equipment  Passenger cell: The system of beams and node connections in the functionally constructed body structure, combined with the strategic deployment of high-strength materials, delivers maximum passive safety in the event of front, side or rear crashes.  Airbags for the driver and front passenger are an integral part of the optimally coordinated safety components in a BMW. Driver and front passenger airbags, as well as the side airbags integrated into the front seat backrests, provide strategic protection.  Runflat tyres feature reinforced side walls so they don’t loosen from the rim if the air pressure drops, making it possible to continue driving to the nearest repair shop.  Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) continually assesses the vehicle’s movements and optimises directional stability and traction when necessary by intervening in engine and brake management. This makes it much easier to control the vehicle, even on difficult surfaces, as well as actively increases driving safety.  Adaptive headlights with variable city and motorway light distribution, including BMW Selective Beam (anti-dazzle High- Beam Assistant) and cornering lights, actively help increase driving safety by optimally illuminating the road ahead. When the steering wheel is turned, the headlights also turn to give the driver a better view of the bend ahead.  Approach control warning 1 , which is part of the Driving Assistant package, is a camera-based safety feature that monitors vehicles ahead and provides a warning when distances become too close.
