A package of intelligent safety measures in the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo help to minimise the risk of accidents – and to 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 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.
