Active steering adjusts to make cornering easier at both low and high speeds. At low speeds, active steering enlarges the steering angle, giving you the ability take tight manoeuvres with a smaller movement of the steering wheel.
At higher speeds, active steering reduces steering movement, allowing you to steer the wheels more precisely.
In critical situations, such as when the car oversteers or when braking on an inconsistent surface, active steering intervenes to assist.
Active steering does not interrupt the direct connection between driver and wheels, so the BMW X5 can still be fully steered even if the system fails. If a fault is detected it immediately deactivates, so you always stay in full control of the situation.
