Design and functionality need not be opposites. The best example of this is the interior of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan: Innovative functions and ergonomically positioned details leave room for what is most important: sheer driving pleasure.
Practical: for the first time in a vehicle of this class, the new BMW 3 Series Sedan has two drinks holders integrated into the central console in front of the gear selection lever. They not only provide perfect support for mugs or bottles, but also perfect ergonomic design. A removable storage compartment is available as an alternative. There is space for drinks bottles with a content of up to one litre in the storage compartments under the armrests in the doors. Additional storage compartments in the central console with a special section for mobile devices underline the extremely functional design of the interior.
In the field of operating comfort too, BMW impresses with a further intelligent solution. Available for the first time in the new BMW 3 Series Sedan – in combination with the Comfort Access special accessory – is the contactless opening of the tailgate. This puts paid to the inconvenience of searching for your keys while you struggle with your bags after a strenuous shopping trip. A wave of the foot below the rear bumper activates the opening mechanism of the tailgate, which then unlocks and swings open automatically.
The optionally available folding backrest of the rear seat in the new BMW 3 Series Sedan offers flexible solutions when transporting large or bulky objects. The backrest has a 40:20:40 split, thus allowing for maximum versatility.
