BMW X5 M Offers New ‘Auto Hold’ Function
Many would agree that the best display at the most recent Shanghai Auto Show was the BMW X5 M. Positioned directly over a bright spotlight, its many features couldn’t go unnoticed.
Among the improved features of the BMW X5 M is the Auto Hold Function. This feature grips the vehicle in position when it arrives at an intersection. It makes it easier to stop the vehicle and check before speeding off. This feature is very effective in lingering traffic and helps the driver to avoid accidents without having to touch the brakes. The Auto Hold Function is quickly disabled when the driver hits the accelerator. Described as a convenient safety feature, the BMW X5 M was designed with the intentions to minimize on traffic accidents. Americans would have loved to get a first-hand glance at this new vehicle, but it was unfortunately excluded from the recent Frank Furt Motor Show.
The German-based company has recognized the need for driving assistant aids in vehicles to compliment steering-wheel driving. The BMW X5 is powered by a new, twin-turbo direct-injection 4.4 liter V8 engine, but it retains some of the features intrinsic to the streamline to include the all-wheel drive system.
This luxury car company is known for its fancy-colored and elaborately designed vehicles. But to strike a balance, BMW continues to make sturdy, big unit vehicles that can manage a variety of driving courses. Installation of additional safety features such as the Auto Hold Function in the X5 M is just another way BMW guarantees superior protection for drivers and passengers.
