When someone wants to open the luggage compartment after a shopping spree, they usually have to awkwardly search for the key in their bag while standing in front of the car with their arms full. This is no longer necessary thanks to the innovative comfort access system which allows the contactless opening of the tailgate. A quick, targeted wave of the foot under the rear bumper is all it takes for the tailgate to open via sensor.

It then unlocks and swings open on its own. Sensors installed at different heights in the rear bumper detect the wave of the foot and open the luggage compartment. This innovative feature therefore makes it much easier to operate and load the luggage compartment. Access is only granted when the system also detects the presence of an authorised car key.


Whether smartphone, drinks or small luggage items – the new BMW 3 Series Sedan has plenty of room for your storage requirements. The centre console contains a holder for two drinks, and its roller cover, when closed, can be used as an additional storage surface. The inside of the front doors can accommodate bottles with a volume of upto one litre.

The optional Storage compartment package offers even more stowage possibilities. It has a hinged compartment on the driver’s side of the instrument panel, nets on the front-seat backrests as well as two hooks for bags. There is also a storage net and a fastening strap in the luggage compartment. The package also includes a versatile net for the floor of the luggage compartment, a storage tray for the compartment beneath it and a 12V power socket in the rear.


With a volume of 480 litres, the luggage compartment of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan is roomy enough to satisfy all your everyday needs. The optional through-loading system with a rear-seat backrest that can be divided in a 40:20:40 ratio ensures enhanced transport possibilities, as the seats and luggage compartment can be modified to suit your requirements. The middle seating segment and the segment on the same side as the front-seat passenger can be folded down individually. The seating segment on the driver’s side is folded down together with the middle segment. In this way, the new BMW 3 Series Sedan can be loaded and unloaded with outstanding flexibility. Two passengers can sit comfortably in the rear while, at the same time, long objects like surfboards can also be transported.


Each BMW vehicle comes with a package of intelligent safety features aimed at minimising the risk of accidents – and for that great feeling of knowing one is always in safe hands. Highly robust, large-volume supporting structures and the intelligent use of specialised high-strength steel ensure maximum rigidity in the safety passenger cell, while keeping the overall weight to a minimum.

The impact of a collision is channelled away from the passenger cell to other parts of the car body, such as the undercarriage, side frames, front bulkhead and roof, where it is absorbed by deformation zones at the front and rear. In the case of a side-on collision, occupants are protected by strengthened structures in the B-pillars and side skirts, highly rigid side impact protection in the doors, as well as a stable seat crossmember.

Various pedestrian-protection features can be found at the front of the car. A shock absorber is built into the front area between the bumper and bumper cover, which reduces the chance of injuries in the event that the bumper strikes a pedestrian's legs. The bonnet is equipped with deformation elements, which absorb the force of impact, forming a crumple zone.
