BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo Comfort & Functionality

EXHIBITS TRUE GREATNESS.
INSIDE AND OUT.

Comfort and functionality in the bmw 3 series gran turismo.

The BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo provides exceptional comfort to those in the front, while back-seat passengers benefit from the long wheelbase and generous space afforded by the high roof line. Practical functions such as automatic tailgate operation make loading the car easy, while the convenient enhanced Bluetooth with wireless charging and Wi-Fi hotspot preparation make the car friendly to mobile devices.

SPACIOUS.
 

Whether it's a trip to the seaside, a golfing weekend or a full-on family holiday, the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo will ensure you're not left short on space. And with a high level of comfort, impressive spaciousness and a panoramic view from every seat, the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo ensures both driver and passengers will enjoy every journey, short or long.

The back shelf is split in two making it extremely practical. The rear section automatically opens and closes in unison with the opening and closing of the tailgate, all as standard. When additional space is needed in the luggage compartment it’s easily removed and stowed below the luggage compartment floor. So you can make full use of the storage space when transporting bulky items.

The backrest angle of the rear seats can be individually set in a 40:20:40 split as standard. The adjustment range of the rear seat backrest encompasses 15 different stages – from the Cargo setting at an inclination of 8° (for an additional luggage compartment volume of 33 litres) to the Comfort position at an inclination of 27°. This allows the rear passengers to individually adjust the seat inclination to the position that they find most comfortable, all via the touch of a button located on the seat itself.

practical functions.
 

Cleverly designed functions make everyday life a little easier. For example, optional Comfort Access combined with the automatic tailgate operation allows contactless opening of the luggage compartment.

The standard Automatic tailgate operation allows users to open and close the tailgate electronically via a button in the interior, or by one on the car key. The tailgate can also be opened in the conventional manner using the outside handle and closed using a button on the inside of the tailgate.

Rear seat backrests can be unlocked and folded down conveniently with the push of a button in the luggage compartment – creating a storage area floor that is virtually flat. A sophisticated spring mechanism causes the seats to fold down slowly and quietly. The headrests on the rear seats don’t need to be removed, simply folded down.

The aluminium luggage compartment lashing rails (part of the Storage compartment package) feature two adjustable fastening points to aid the transportation of larger items without the risk of them moving in transit.

MOBILE COMFORT.

BMW Car Wi-Fi Hotspot Preparation

BMW Car Wi-Fi Hotspot Preparation.


The equipment contains a permanently integrated preparation for a Wi-Fi hotspot using the LTE standard, which can be activated via a fee-based Internet connection. The connection is established via the SIM card permanently installed in the vehicle.

Additional Comfort.
 

A comfortable car journey begins the moment you step into the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo. This stems from features such as the Panoramic glass sunroof, the automatic climate control, and the driver orientated cabin layout.

When open, the optional Panoramic glass sunroof allows plenty of fresh air into the vehicle. Closed, it creates a bright, light-flooded atmosphere. It opens and closes at the push of a button, or remotely using the car key, and is equipped with slide and lift functions, an electrically adjustable sunshade and wind deflector.

The Automatic air conditioning features two-zone control and separate controls for the driver and front passenger. It also includes Automatic Air Recirculation (AAR), an active carbon filter, a fog and solar sensor, and rear air vents.

The Multifunction steering wheel allows the telephone, speech and audio functions, as well as the speed, to be controlled via the steering wheel without the driver having to move their hands.

The optional interior mirror and driver-side exterior mirror feature an automatic anti-dazzle function, and both exterior mirrors are equipped with an electric folding function. When reverse gear is engaged, the automatic parking function tilts the passenger-side exterior mirror downwards, allowing the driver to see the kerb.

BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo Passive Safety

Passive Safety.
 

Every BMW comes with a multitude of intelligent safety features designed to minimise the risk of accidents – for the ease of mind that comes with knowing you’re always in safe hands. Robust, large-volume supporting structures and the intelligent use of specialised high-strength steel ensures maximum rigidity in the safety passenger cell, while keeping the overall weight to a minimum.

The impact of a collision is channelled away from the passenger cell to other parts of the car body, such as the undercarriage, side frames, front bulkhead and roof, where it is absorbed by deformation zones at the front and rear. In the case of a side-on collision, driver and passengers are protected by strengthened structures in the B-pillars and side skirts, highly rigid side impact protection in the doors, as well as a stable seat cross-member.

Pedestrian protection features can be found at the front of the car. A shock absorber is built between the bumper and bumper cover, which reduces the chance of injuries should the bumper strike a pedestrian's legs. Additionally, the bonnet is fitted with deformation elements that form crumple zones to help absorb any impact.
