As BMW introduces a number of advanced safety systems on its vehicles, including Dynamic Stability
Control (DSC) and xDrive all-wheel-drive, engineers will be tasked with making sure the systems improve the responsiveness and handling of vehicles, as opposed to becoming an intrusive nanny trying to spoil the experience.
Standard kit includes electronic brake force distribution with brake-assist, dynamic stability
control and traction control, front, side and curtain air bags, climate control and cruise control.
Priced from pounds 26,995, the car which is fitted with a range of devices designed to improve its off-road capabilities, including electronic traction control, dynamic stability
control and terrain response mechanisms Land Rover claims that the car's safety features, which include eight airbags and anti-intrusion side beams.
A patented Terrain Response four-wheel-drive system, Dynamic Stability
Control, and Hill Descent Control are just a few of the features that keep the tires true and on the ground.
Dual stage airbags for driver and front passenger, side impact bags to protect the chest, an inflatable curtain to guard against head injuries plus Volvo's whiplash system along with dynamic stability
and traction control are all included as standard.
Another development from Prodrive, using the expertise from the world's top rally cars, is a new dynamic stability
enhancement system called Active Torque Dynamics.
This book concentrates on the conflict between dynamic stability
and guidance, and how the arrangement of the suspension system, connecting the wheelsets to the car, can be used to optimize steering and stability.
These include front, side and curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake distribution, brake assistance, dynamic stability
control, and automatic ride height control.
Six airbags, full rollover protection, dynamic stability
control, cornering brake control and ABS are all standard.
The new BMW X3 features advanced safety technologies such as attentiveness assistance, dynamic stability
control (DSC) including cornering brake control (CBC), electric parking brake with auto hold and side-impact protection among others, besides six airbags.
It features an Active M Differential, a recalibrated Dynamic Stability
Control system, a front strut brace for added rigidity, M Sport brakes with larger discs and callipers, larger kidney grilles, a custom front skirt and interiors with sports bucket seats covered in black leather.
