Comfort & safety in the BMW 3 Series Saloon.

The BMW 3 Series offers all you need to simply sit back and relax. The spacious interior with plenty of storage possibilities turn every journey into a wonderfully comfortable experience. The flexible luggage compartment ensures outstanding functionality. And the ingenious occupant protection guarantees peace of mind in all seats.


To access the boot when your hands are full, the innovative comfort access system allows you to open it without even touching it. The system will cleverly sense that the car key is present, after which a quick wave of your foot under the bumper will activate a sensor that pops it open.


Whether smartphone, drinks or small luggage items – the BMW 3 Series Saloon 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 up to one litre.
The optional Storage compartment package includes a compartment with lid on the driver's side, 12 V sockets in the rear centre console and in the luggage compartment, a storage net on the luggage compartment floor, as well as a storage tray under the luggage compartment floor and two bag holders.


With a volume of 480 litres, the luggage compartment of the BMW 3 Series Saloon 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 BMW 3 Series Saloon can be loaded and unloaded with outstanding flexibility. Two passengers can sit comfortably in the rear while, at the same time, long objects (e.g. ski and snowboard bags) 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 specialized 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.
