Contactless opening and closing of the tailgate.
When someone wants to open the luggage compartment after a shopping spree, they usually have to awkwardly search for the key in their bags while standing in front of the car with their arms full. This becomes unnecessary with the innovative Comfort Access system.
It enables – in conjunction with the automatic tailgate operation –contactless opening and closing of the tailgate. A quick, directed wave of the foot under the rear bumper allows the tailgate to be opened or closed via sensor.
It then unlocks and swings open or shut 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, loading and closing the luggage compartment more convenient. Access is only granted when the system also detects the presence of an authorised car key.
