Smartphones can be extensively networked with the vehicle using the Borgward Connect 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
