All seats are heated, and the all-wheel drive versions get a heated steering wheel. An abundance of safety aids are standard too, including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, a driver attention warning system, evasive steering assist, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Fewer standard features are included on the BMW 5 Series at the base level. The 5 Series begins with a smaller 12-inch touchscreen interface. A heated steering wheel and heated seats are not standard on the BMW, and it doesn’t have as many safety aids.
