BMW matches Mercedes-Benz with huge autonomous driving upgrade for 7 Series

BMW has announced that it will offer a significantly more advanced level of autonomous driving functionality in its new 7 Series from March 2024. The system, which can be ordered from December to be fitted for March next year, is currently only available in Germany, but the marque plans to roll it out to further markets where legislation permits in the near future.

Dubbed BMW Personal Pilot L3, BMW says this is a “first of its kind” system that allows “drivers to redirect their focus to other in-vehicle activities”. It reaches SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Level 3 for autonomous driving functionality, which is an industry standard that rates driving automation from Level 0 (no automation) to Level 5 (essentially, falling asleep and letting the car do everything).
