Apart from test driving what might very well be declared the 2014 Car of the Year in Europe, visitors will also get to learn more about what BMW is calling ‘ConnectedDrive’.

The features this array of systems installed on the latest BMWs comprise are meant to bring the driver, the car and the outside world together in a harmonious way through an intelligent combination of a smart navigation system, concierge services as well as infotainment and entertainment features.

For the i3, the engineers went all out, offering unprecedented levels of connectivity, including through smartphones. The BMW i Remote app actually allows you to control and check specific function of your i3 from hundreds of meters or even kilometers away.

Another highlight of BMW’s presence on the scene will be the revealing of their progress in the research and development for their ‘highly automated driving’ system that is meant to increase safety, comfort and efficiency for both the driver and the traffic system.
