PRACTICAL ASSISTANT. FOR YOUR TRAVELS.

Safety & Comfort in the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo.

Convenient assistance systems and extensive safety functions ensure your BMW protects and assists you wherever possible.

CONTACTLESS OPENING AND CLOSING OF THE TAILGATE.

If you're standing behind your BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo with your hands full of shopping and want to load the boot, you don't need to search your pockets to find the car key. With innovative Comfort Access as an option, you can open the tailgate without making contact.

One brief movement of your foot below the rear bumper is all it takes for a sensor to activate the opening of the tailgate, which then unlocks and springs open or, depending on the vehicle, opens automatically with the aid of automatic tailgate operation. Sensors are installed at different heights in the rear bumper panel to recognise 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 unless it also identifies the authorised car key that the person is carrying.

HARMAN KARDON SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM.

The Harman Kardon Surround Sound System offers a listening experience to rival any concert hall. An equalising digital amplifier with 600 W output and individually selectable equalising guarantees brilliant, top-quality sound.

A total of 16 finely tuned speakers (7 mid-range, 7 tweeters and 2 centre bass) provide the acoustic highlights inside the vehicle, with the aluminium 'harman/kardon' lettering in the mirror triangles adding a visual flourish.

ADAPTIVE HEADLIGHTS.

Adaptive Headlights with variable light distribution for city and highway driving, including cornering lights, glare-free High Beam Assistant with automatic full and dipped beam as bi-xenon headlight technology offer you optimum illumination of the road ahead.

When you are driving at night, the adjustable headlights project their beam deep into the upcoming bends as soon as you move the steering wheel accordingly. The cornering lights integrated in the fog lights improve close range visibility and can be activated even when the vehicle is at a standstill, either by operating the indicators or by steering accordingly.

In this way, Adaptive Headlights guarantee optimum vision in all situations and thus boost active driving safety. Depending on how light it is outside and how much traffic is on the road, the glare-free High Beam Assist automatically regulates the intensity of the beam, thus ensuring that the road is illuminated ideally at night. The system monitors vehicles ahead and oncoming traffic and dips the headlights smoothly and reliably to prevent other drivers being distracted.

PASSIVE SAFETY.

PASSIVE SAFETY.

Minimise the risk of accidents.

A package of intelligent safety measures in the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo help to minimise the risk of accidents. It give you the reassuring feeling that you're well protected at all times.

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. 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.

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