BMW 5 Series Sedan: Active and passive safety

Active and passive safety.

The aim? To ensure all passengers and pedestrians receive maximum protection. The implementation? A powerful combination of intelligent technology and innovative steels.

More

Active Protection is an optional safety concept that uses forward-thinking technology and, in extreme circumstances, protects the driver and passengers from injury. The seat belt tensioners built into the front seats actively enhance the function of the seat belts while automatic sliding discs ensure the side impact airbags function optimally. The safety measures even incorporate the electric glass roof and seat adjustment with memory function*, both of which are available as optional extras.

The BMW 5 Series Sedan offers a high level of passive safety: multiphase and warm, restructured steels are intelligently combined to provide superior protection for passengers as well as increased safety for third parties involved in collisions. This is achieved by the vehicle absorbing forces in the deformation zones while load paths divert impact energy away from the passengers. If there is a collision with a pedestrian, an automatic system lifts the bonnet to cushion the impact.

*The measure only applies to the passenger seat and is only compatible with the comfort seats.
