Contactless opening of the tailgate.
Contactless opening and closing of the tailgate is part of the Comfort access system. In situations where the user's hands are full, all that's necessary is a targeted motion of the foot under the rear bumper and the process is carried out conveniently and automatically. They just need to be carrying the car key with them.
When someone wants to open the luggage compartment after a shopping spree, it's usually necessary to awkwardly search for the key in their bags while standing in front of the car with arms full. In such situations, the innovative comfort access system comes to the rescue, allowing the contactless opening of the tailgate: A quick, targeted wave of the foot under the rear bumper causes a sensor to initiate the opening process. They just need to be carrying the car key with them. The tailgate then unlocks and swings open on its own. Sensors installed at different heights in the rear bumper detect the wave of the foot and open the luggage compartment. This innovative feature from BMW ConnectedDrive makes opening and loading the luggage compartment more convenient.
