Changing Lanes
One of the newest features of the Highway Drive Assist system is the automatic lane change functionality. If the BMW comes upon a vehicle that is slower than the system’s set speed, the driver is notified that a lane change is available – a glance in the side mirror confirms the lane change, and the car signals and makes the change on its own. It was a little unnerving the first few times, but the system worked smoothly and gave us the confidence to continue. But the driver must continue to pay attention to the road – looking away for more than five seconds will result in an alert, and the system will disengage shortly after.
