PASSIVE SAFETY.

Thanks to specific selection of materials, a high-strength structure and an intelligent lightweight construction concept, the body of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan meets the most stringent requirements and, in combination with highly efficient restraint systems, ensures the maximum possible protection for vehicle occupants.
Extremely resistant, large-volume cross-members and the intelligent use of high-strength and ultra high-strength multiphase steels provide maximum protection for the safety bodyshell while maintaining a low weight.

  • Energy Division

    The impact energy is diverted to other areas of the bodyshell around the passenger cell, such as the underbody, side frame, bulkhead and roof, and absorbed by deformation zones at the front and rear. In the event of a side collision, protection comes from reinforced structures in the B-pillar and sills, high-strength side-impact stabilisers in the doors as well as robust cross-members in the seat areas.

  • Front end Safety

    The front of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan has various devices to protect pedestrians. A shock absorber is integrated between the bumper carrier and panel to reduced leg injuries in a collision. Furthermore, the bonnet is equipped with deformation elements to reduce the impact energy and thus act as a crumple zone.

  • Safety Ranking

    The overall result is a perfectly coordinated overall concept so that the new BMW 3 Series Sedan is particularly impressive in terms of safety. This new sports saloon thus supplies all the requirements to score top marks in the all-important European, US and worldwide crash tests.

More convenience is provided by Comfort Access with hands-free trunk opening: If your hands are full, all you need to do is move your foot below the rear bumper and you can then load and unload the trunk quickly and easily. Sensors are installed at different heights in the rear bumper panel to recognize persons and to detect the movement of their foot. This innovative equipment from BMW ConnectedDrive provides increased convenience when operating and loading the rear of the vehicle. However, the system does not grant access authorization unless it also identifies the car key that the person is carrying.

Integrated iDrive System.

Many functions, just a few buttons: with the iDrive system you have full control over all functions of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan, from navigation system to integrated operating manual. Simple and intuitive. The iDrive system is integrated as standard in every new BMW 3 Series Sedan model.
Convenience functions such as navigation, special features of the automatic climate control and BMW Assist are regulated using the iDrive Controller on the central console. The Controller can be operated with one hand as well as from the front passenger seat. Thanks to a clear feedback signal, it requires only minimum attention.

Navigation Keys.

Direct selection keys make the menus for navigation (in combination with BMW Navigation systems Business or Professional) telephone and music (radio and audio CD) accessible at the push of a button. In addition, eight favourite keys are available for you to save your preferred settings such as radio stations, destinations and telephone numbers.
All functions are shown in the Control Display on the instrument panel. Coloured markings instantly indicate which functional area you are in. The standard 6.5-inch Control Display impresses with its extremely clear reproduction and brilliant colours. Together with the Navigation system Business, the display has a smartphone look with black panel technology. Yet a larger version is also available: in combination with the Navigation system Professional, the display size increases to 8.8 inches.
