One of the key highlights of the event was when Joseph Omokhapue, the National Sales Manager, Coscharis BMW demonstrated some of the unique features in the new BMW 5 series which offer the driver unbeatable support – not only at critical moments but also in less demanding situations at the wheel, such as traffic jams, slow-moving traffic and monotonous stretches of motorway. To this end, the 5 Series is fitted as standard with a stereo camera, which teams up with optional radar and ultrasound sensors to monitor the area around the car.

New features in the BMW 5 Series alongside the evasion aid and Crossing traffic warning are the Lane Change Assistant and Lane Keeping Assistant with active side collision protection. “The latter keeps an eye on the lane markings and the area around the car, and actively helps the driver to avoid looming collisions by applying corrective steering inputs. Similarly, the Park Assist helps the car to identify available space and park itself with minimal or no assistance from the driver.

There were series of power and performance demonstrations of the BMW cars and Motorbikes during the festival and an array display of the latest BMW Cars by Coscharis Motors and other BMW owners.

Coscharis Motors Plc owns the exclusive franchise for BMW vehicles sales and service in Nigeria. It currently has showrooms and workshops located across Nigeria with its head office in Lagos.
