INFOTAINMENT


Smartphones can be extensively networked with the vehicle using the B-Link Intelligent Connectivity System. The driver therefore has unhindered access to all smartphone functions. Conversely, smartphone apps give the authorised user specific access to the vehicle at any time and anywhere. Thanks to WiFi hotspots integrated into the vehicle, occupants can also log into the internet with end devices such as smartphones, tablets or netbooks.

BX5 Infotainment

Smartphone apps give the authorised user specific access to the vehicle at any time and anywhere. The fuel level, tyre pressure and oil or next service date can be accessed
remotely. The vehicle can also be located, opened or closed remotely. A tracking function and the vehicle immobiliser help in the event of theft.

Driver Seat BX5

Depending on their preferences, the driver has the choice whether they want to access and operate the infotainment menus using the direct access buttons, turn and press controls positioned in the centre console or the 12.3 inch touchscreen positioned centrally in the dashboard. The buttons and rollers on the ergonomic three-spoke steering wheel allow you to access various vehicle functions in the central cockpit display.

Central touchscreen BX5

The central touchscreen can be operated like a smartphone display using different finger gestures and some of it can be freely programmed. The driver can arrange the panels to suit their preferences.

ACTIVE AND PASSIVE SAFETY


  • The body with its highly stable passenger cell and defined deformable barriers at the front and rear is the reliable foundation for superb occupant protection. Crucial body sections are reinforced with high-strength, ultra high-strength or hot-rolled steel. Should, however, the worst come to the worst, several load paths distribute the impact energy in the event of a head-on, side or rear crash and therefore ensure that the deceleration values that are configured exactly to the passive safety equipment are as balanced as possible.
  • The passive safety equipment unfolds its maximum protection potential. For the different kinds of crashes, such as head-on, side or rear collisions, alongside the belt systems there are also up to six air bags provided, which are activated as required depending on the severity of the accident and can dramatically mitigate the consequences of an accident on the occupants. These include two-stage hybrid air bags for the driver and front passenger, side air bags for the driver and front passenger and curtain air bags over both rows of seats.
  • So that the passive safety equipment remains as inactive as possible, the Borgward BX5 offers several preventive driving dynamics and driver assistance systems that can prevent accidents as part of the “B-Safe” concept. These include, for example, the blind spot alert, road sign assistant, fatigue alert or “pre-filling” the brakes in the event of rapid deceleration.
  • Systems such as the 360° dome camera also make handling the Borgward SUV even more comfortable particularly in confusing situations and help prevent minor damage. Parallel and diagonal parking manoeuvres are no problem at all and drivers can complete tight shunting manoeuvres in a narrow car park or in confusing terrain to the centimetre. And Borgward drivers don’t need to take narrow exits blind as the front and rear camera makes crossing pedestrians, cyclists and cars visible on the central display.

With its comprehensive “B-Safe” safety concept the Borgward BX5 meets all the requirements with regards to maximum safety for its occupants, as is typical of the brand. Active safety features can preventively identify potential hazards and therefore help avoid accidents. The vehicle structure and restraint systems also give the SUV the potential to pass international crash tests and safety ratings with flying colours.
