BMW 5 Series: Cross Traffic Alert

The Cross Traffic Alert was used for the first time in the G12. This warning assists the driver when maneuvering out of a parking space and in other everyday situations where it is difficult to see the traffic, such as at blind entrances and exits.

Depending on the vehicle equipment, the Cross Traffic Alert is available in the G30 for rear or also for the front.

The system can detect objects that are approaching the vehicle from the side, either from the front or rear (depending on the vehicle equipment). The driver is made aware or, if necessary, warned of cross traffic by the Cross Traffic Alert when maneuvering out of a parking space or entering the cross traffic.
