Munich. An expanded range of drive systems, additional items of standard and optional equipment, and new digital services will bring fresh breadth of choice and driving pleasure to the BMW model line-up in summer 2024. The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, BMW X1 and BMW X2 ranges will all welcome a new drive system variant in July 2024. And the three premium compact models will now also be available with the Parking Assistant Professional. Vehicles equipped with BMW Operating System 8.5 or BMW Operating System 9 will offer a wider selection of in-car gaming options and My Modes. It will also be possible to interact with the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant in additional languages. And the charging station search function for current BMW models with an electrified drive system has been further improved – both when using the car’s own systems and with the My BMW App.

Standard specification for the BMW X5 and BMW X6 will also be expanded from summer 2024 to include the Driving Assistant system. And the BMW XM Label Red high-performance model (petrol and electric power consumption – weighted, combined: 33.5 kWh/100 km and 2.0 l/100 km [141.2 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions – weighted, combined: 45 g/km (WLTP); fuel consumption with discharged battery: 12.9 l/100 km [21.9 mpg imp] in the WLTP cycle; CO2 classes: with discharged battery G; weighted, combined B) will be available with new exterior paint finishes and leather trim variants.


BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, BMW X1 and BMW X2 with additional drive system variant and new equipment options.

A third diesel engine will be added to the drive system line-up for the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer from July 2024. With its maximum output of 120 kW/163 hp and peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft), the engine for the new BMW 220d Active Tourer (fuel consumption, combined: 4.9 – 4.5 l/100 km [57.7 – 62.8 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions, combined: 128 – 117 g/km in the WLTP cycle, CO2 class: D) is positioned between the two diesel units already available for the compact all-rounder. Thanks to 48V mild hybrid technology, the 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine stands out with both its instantaneous power delivery and high efficiency. The drive system’s electric motor takes the form of a crankshaft-driven starter generator integrated into the seven-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch. Generating an extra 15 kW/20 hp, it can either supplement the output of the combustion engine or ease the load on it, as the situation demands. The new BMW 220d Active Tourer accelerates from to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.3 seconds, and on to a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph).

A particularly fine balance between driving pleasure and fuel consumption has already made the 120 kW/163 hp diesel engine a popular choice in the BMW X1 when channelling its power through all four wheels (courtesy of the intelligent all-wheel-drive system BMW xDrive). And from July 2024 this unit will be available for the compact Sports Activity Vehicle in its cutting-edge front-wheel-drive configuration too. A member of the BMW Group’s latest generation of modular engines, it will also make its debut in the BMW X2, likewise driving the front wheels. It powers both the new BMW X1 sDrive20d (fuel consumption, combined: 5.1 – 4.5 l/100 km [55.4 – 62.8 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions, combined: 133 – 117 g/km in the WLTP cycle, CO2 class: D) and new BMW X2 sDrive20d (fuel consumption, combined: 5.1 – 4.5 l/100 km [55.4 – 62.8 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions, combined: 133 – 119 g/km in the WLTP cycle, CO2 class: D) from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.5 seconds. The top speed of the two models is 210 km/h (130 mph).

From summer 2024, standard equipment for the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, BMW X1 and BMW X2 will expand to include seat heating for the driver and front passenger, M High-gloss Shadow Line trim and the option of using the Personal eSIM. Meanwhile, the Parking Assistant Professional has been added to the options list. It enables automated entry into and exit from parking spaces from outside the car as well using a smartphone and the My BMW App. This option also includes the Manoeuvre Assistant, which allows the customer to carry out extensive manoeuvres covering a distance of up to 200 metres each – again from outside the car with a smartphone. It is also possible to quickly switch between control methods, meaning that once a parking or general manoeuvre has commenced, it can be halted at any time and then resumed again either from inside the car using its control/operation system or from outside with a smartphone.

The functionality of the Parking Assistant Professional can also be downloaded over the air from the BMW ConnectedDrive Store as part of BMW Digital Premium. This is possible in cars specified with BMW Operating System 9, BMW Parking Assistant Plus and Comfort Access.

In addition, the Innovation package available as an option for the three compact models will now also contain the Driving Assistant, which optimises comfort and safety with the help of the Speed Limit Info function, the Steering and Lane Control Assistant, Active Cruise Control and the automatic Speed Limit Assist. The optional Comfort package has been expanded to include active seats and electrically operated seat adjustment with memory function for the driver and front passenger. In cars specified with the M Sport package and the M Performance variants of the BMW X1 and BMW X2, the interior and exterior mirror package includes an M-specific logo projection in the entrance area to the car. The telephony with wireless charging option will now include an illuminated smartphone tray for the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer as well.


BMW iDrive with QuickSelect: further improved digital control functions.

Summer 2024 will also bring further optimisation for a host of control functions grouped within the BMW iDrive system with QuickSelect. In cars equipped with BMW Operating System 9, the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant will enable communication in Polish and Dutch, with Swedish also added to the line-up of languages in models with BMW Operating System 8.5. At the same time, the graphic on the control display depicting exchanges with the car’s occupants will gain additional transformation symbols. The BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant uses these symbols to show it has understood an instruction given in natural language. Preview images available via the relevant widgets on the home page will now also allow it to suggest instruction videos the customer can watch when the car is stationary to learn about specific functions.

The array of games available in the car via the AirConsole platform is now even broader. “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”, “Starlit Kart”, “Starlit Adventures” and “Trivia Crack” have joined the selection of casual games that can be played directly on the control display or using a smartphone as a controller when the car is at rest.

Customers will also be able to order another new My Mode from the BMW ConnectedDrive Store from summer 2024. The new Silent Mode is available for the BMW 7 Series, BMW iX, BMW 5 Series Sedan and BMW 5 Series Touring as part of the Connected Booster XL package. It is also offered for the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, BMW X1 and BMW X2 with BMW Operating System 9 via BMW Digital Premium. Silent Mode creates a peaceful cockpit ambience geared purely to concentrated driving. In order to limit other influences on the driver, potential distractions such as entertainment functions and visual content on the control display are deactivated. Content on the information display is also reduced to a minimum. In cars with the seat massage function and ambient lighting specified, these functions are turned off and the electrically operated sun shades (if fitted) are closed.

In cars with BMW Operating System 8.5, the cloud-based navigation system BMW Maps will now provide information on parking and rest areas along the planned journey in the route overview. In all-electric and plug-in hybrid models, charging stations (including their availability status) will also be shown. Selecting a charging station is now even easier thanks to the upgraded filter function, which means that customers can choose to only be shown stations from their preferred operators.

Synchronisation between the car and My BMW App of the relevant settings for charging-optimised route guidance will also be further improved from summer 2024. Added to which, analysis using data on previous charging stops collected in the BMW backend ensures even more precise routing to public charging stations. This has allowed the location information for around a third of all recorded charging points to be specified more precisely.

In all models with all-electric drive and BMW Operating System 8.5 or 9, charging-optimised route guidance can now be adapted even more precisely to personal requirements. In addition to the mid-journey stops recommended to achieve the shortest possible overall travel time, alternative charging stations will now be listed along the route, complete with detailed information. This means the driver can vary their route planning on the spur of a moment, if necessary, and without needing to search again for a suitable mid-journey stop with charging facilities. The screen will then also show information on the additional driving time required by any route adjustments. Furthermore, it will now be possible for the driver to set the remaining charge they would like the high-voltage battery to have on arrival at their destination even more precisely. A lower value for the preferred remaining capacity can be selected for the user’s home address or workplace, where they know they will find a reliably available charging point.
