Safety & Comfort in the BMW 3 Series Touring.

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

Adaptive Headlights with High Beam Assistant.

Adaptive Headlights with High Beam Assistant.

Adaptive Headlights with variable light distribution: BMW lighting systems share the thinking – on winding roads, at high speeds or for oncoming traffic. A winding road at night: the xenon headlights adapt to the angle of the curve ahead, and the headlight beam of the new BMW 3 Series Touring remains on the road. To calculate the course of the road, sensors detect the cornering angle, yaw and driving speed. Adaptive headlights guarantee optimum vision on dark roads, earlier recognition of the course of the route and possible hazards. Higher speeds require the driver to look farther ahead in order to react in time – the front headlights are therefore raised. In urban traffic, they are lowered automatically and illuminate the road directly in front of the vehicle even more efficiently without any risk of dazing the oncoming traffic. 


The optional Harman Kardon Surround Sound System offers perfect three-dimensional sound in your BMW 3 Series Touring and opens up a whole world of listening experiences. A treat for the ears, even at high speed. Up to 16 speakers (600 W output) fill the interior of the BMW 3 Series Touring with brilliant-quality surround sound. Compared with the regular hi-fi system, the Harman Kardon system has been further optimized in terms of sound quality and is visually distinct. It includes two additional mid-range speakers and five extra tweeters, all of which have high-quality aluminum diaphragms and thus develop a significantly more refined sound pattern than the regular hi-fi system. Luxurious panels made of anodized aluminum in the mirror triangles bearing the lettering define the appearance of the Harman Kardon Surround Sound System. The use of metal panels with a hexagonal structure serve to optically upgrade the interior. The Auravox technology enables vehicle-specific and speed-dependent equalizing in the bass register, giving a fine level of compensation for driving noise.


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 detect persons. They detect the movement of the foot between shin and tip of the toes and send a signal to the on-board computer. 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.

Passive safety.

Passive safety.

Maximum possible protection for vehicle occupants.

Thanks to specific selection of materials, a high-strength structure and an intelligent lightweight construction concept, the body of the new BMW 3 Series Touring 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. 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 stabilizers in the doors as well as robust cross-members in the seat areas. 

Devices to protect pedestrians.

The front of the new BMW 3 Series Touring 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 hood is equipped with deformation elements to reduce the impact energy and thus act as a crumple zone. The overall result is a perfectly coordinated overall concept so that the new BMW 3 Series Touring is particularly impressive in terms of safety.
