Some safety features still may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Side mirror turn signals are standard on the BMW 5 Series. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you. Standard Automatic High Beams automatically switches high beam headlights off when oncoming traffic is approaching and turns them back on when there aren't any vehicles ahead. Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps, which is standard on the 2021 BMW 5 Series, points headlights towards the direction that the vehicle is heading, even on turns.
