Report: Leaked order guide of 2017 BMW 5-Series indicates more semi-autonomous driving tech

The guide for the 2017 BMW 5-Series also shares info about engines.

A newly leaked order guide of the 2017 BMW 5-Series surfaced on BMW enthusiast forum, Bimmerpost.

According to the guide, Automobile reports that the 2017 BMW 5-Series will come with more semi-autonomous driving technology. The suite is supposedly called the Driver Assistance Plus II package and it will be the closest thing to a self-driving 5-Series being on sale.

Within the package, options like Active Lane Keeping Assistant with Side Collision Avoidance is included in the mix, both systems found on the latest BMW 7-Series.

Then, there’s the more typical active, radar-guided cruise control suites with Stop & Go operation, and more.

So far, the guide also indicates the 2017 BMW 5-Series should be powered by a similar range of four- and six-cylinder engines in the next generation.

Production is said to begin in November.
