I suspect I may get some more pushback for bringing another BMW feature that's missing from the Macan, but we had our X5 serviced this week and our loaner car was a new 4 series Grand Coupe that had an unusual amount of optional equipment for a loaner car (I'm used to getting a stripped 320i).
One of our favorite features on the X5 is the HUD. Before we bought the car I thought it was a frivolous idea, but I quickly changed my opinion after living with it. Not only does it display vehicle speed, it also displays cruise control set speed, navigation info, and certain vehicle warning messages, but apparently BMW has now added an additional feature to the HUD that our 6 year old X5 does not have...the speed limit now appears in the HUD beside the current vehicle speed.
I really like the convenience of that, especially since it appears to have saved me from a speeding ticket yesterday. I was in an unfamiliar area where the speed limit lowered, and I missed seeing the speed limit sign. I noticed that the displayed speed limit on the HUD changed so I slowed down, and sure enough, just up the road there was a cop shooting me with his radar gun.
I've said before that I wish an HUD had been an available feature on our Macan, especially given with the Macan you don't have a sense of how fast you are going, as many forum members have mentioned. Having the speed limit also displayed in the HUD is a whole new dimension that I would frequently use if it was on the Macan.
Also, the one beef I've always had with the HUD in our X5 is that the display can be very difficult to see in bright sunlight when wearing polarized sunglasses. That was definitely no longer an issue on the loaner car. They have substantially improved the HUD's optics.
