I’m looking to upgrade from my 2013 F30 to a used X5 due to now having 2 kids and the F30 is just too small.
I’ve figured out I want the active driving package so I get all the safety features but I would also like active lane keeping as I think that would be great on long drives.
Does anyone know what year BMW added that to the X5?

TIA

Lane departure warning was offered on the e70 in 12 or 13 iirc. The f15 has it bundled in active drivers assistant in the DA+ package 2014-2017. 2018 the option package makeup changed around.

None of these models have "active" lane assist, only lane departure warning.

Frankly, our f15 has the lane departure warning and I dislike it for normal driving. So far most of our driving has been 2 lane state highways so not really relevant. I will activate it for our trip to the coast (`500 mile one way) next month, but I am not sure we're taking the f15. We are likely taking the f10 as it gets better fuel mileage and we do not need the extra height.

I'm pretty sure you're looking at a G05 for lane keeping.

Yes, for "active" stuff, you need to look at the G05. F15 just vibrates the steering wheel only, no brake corrections or self steering. For non-US ones, you may get traffic jam assist which auto-steers and brake at low speed only, no highway speed.

Thanks everyone for the replies.
Since my budget doesn't allow for a G05 i'll just have to forgo that piece of tech.
