Intelligent occupant protection.

Passive safety systems in the BMW X6.

A complex, perfectly orchestrated overall safety system ensures maximum safety for all occupants. The system, which comprises seatbelt, airbag and steering systems, is steered by integrated safety electronics that can determine the type and severity of an accident in milliseconds, then trigger the right airbags at the right settings at exactly the right moment - leaving the remaining airbags available to protect occupants in the event of a follow-up collision. Should the car roll over sideways without hitting anything first, a specially developed rollover sensor linked to the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system triggers the head airbags and seatbelt tensioners.
