Contactless opening of the tailgate.
You’re standing behind your BMW 3 Series Touring with your hands full of shopping and want to load the boot. So now you need to search your pockets to find the car key. Or do you? No, not any more. With innovative Comfort Access as special equipment you can open the tailgate without making contact. One well-placed movement of the foot is all that’s needed.
A brief movement of your foot below the rear bumper is all it takes: a sensor opens the electrically operated tailgate fitted as standard – it unlocks and automatically swings open. 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. Pressing a button closes the tailgate again.
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.
