Design and functionality need not be opposites. The best example of this is the interior of the new BMW ActiveHybrid 3: innovative functions and ergonomically positioned details leave room for what is most important – sheer driving pleasure.
Practical: for the first time in this class of vehicle, two drinks holders have been integrated into the centre console in front of the gear selection lever; they not only offer a perfect place for cups or bottles but also excellent ergonomic design. In addition, a removable storage compartment is available as an option.
There is space for drinks bottles with a capacity 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 functional design of the interior.
In the field of operating comfort too, BMW impresses with a further intelligent solution. As for the new BMW 3 Series Sedan, contactless opening of the tailgate – in combination with the Comfort Access special accessory – is also possible for the the BMW ActiveHybrid 3. This saves you having to put down your bags and search for your keys after a shopping trip: waving 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 ActiveHybrid 3 offers flexible solutions when transporting large or bulky objects. The backrest has a 40:20:40 split, thus allowing for maximum versatility.
