Explore the latest safety, entertainment, and design innovations available from BMW with Santa Barbara Auto Group.
BMW is dedicated to incorporating the most advanced technologies in each new vehicle. At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we are always excited to share the latest BMW innovations with our customers. Currently, some of our favorite features affect design, safety, and connectivity factors and truly set each BMW apart from the crowd. Here is a list of our top picks for 2015:
BMW has made strides in headlight design to provide exceptional visibility on the road. BMW Adaptive LED headlights are special because they literally move with the driver to illuminate road signs, signals, and obstacles clearly. As the steering wheel is turned, the lights move with you and Selective Beam technology automatically controls the high beams to prevent other drivers from being blinded as they approach.
BMW has designed an innovative full-color heads up display that provides every essential piece of information the driver needs while on the road. Data such as current speed, navigation directions, radio and artist information, and safety and collision warnings are projected on the windshield in the driver’s direct line of sight. This way, drivers are not distracted and can stay in touch with necessary information without letting their eyes leave the road.
New BMW models now come with cameras built into the front, rear, and sides to provide 360 degrees of clear vision around the car. Park and maneuver with confidence thanks to interactive track lines that follow the position of the car to help drivers steer into difficult spaces.
Thanks to the advanced night vision technology available in BMW models, drivers can now drive more confidently in the dark. BMW Night Vision allows drivers to see up to 900 feet in the dark and can detect pedestrians and animals that may be hidden in the shadows nearby. The system is even designed to shine a spotlight on pedestrians that are detected to provide an added measure of safety.
BMW Connected Drive
BMW now offers an exciting array of apps available through the BMW Connected Drive system. Drivers can now access contacts, playlists, navigation, and entertainment information by connecting their phone to the car. Stay connected with friends, family, and the information you need even while on the road!
These features are just a small sample of the innovative features available on new BMW vehicles.

Once you have had a chance to try them for yourself, feel free to share your favorite features on our Facebook page.
