Active and passive safety.
BMW M cars come with a package of intelligent safety features aimed at minimising the risk of accidents. Highly robust, large-volume supporting structures and the intelligent use of ultra-high-strength multi-phase steel ensure 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’s body, such as the undercarriage, side frames, front bulkhead or roof, and is absorbed by deformation zones at the front and rear.
In the case of a side-on collision, occupants are protected by strengthened structures in the area of the B-pillars and side skirts, highly rigid side impact protection in the doors, as well as a stable seat crossmember.
