More convenience is provided by Comfort Access with contactless opening and closing of the tailgate: If your hands are full, all you need to do is move your foot below the rear bumper and you can then load and unload the luggage compartment quickly and easily.
Sensors are installed at different heights in the rear bumper panel to recognise persons and to detect the movement of their foot.
This innovative equipment from BMW ConnectedDrive provides increased convenience when operating and loading the rear of the vehicle. However, the system does not grant access authorization unless it also identifies the car key that the person is carrying.


The Harman Kardon surround sound system offers a listening experience to rival any concert hall. An equalizing digital amplifier with 600 W output and individually selectable equalizing guarantees brilliant, top-quality sound.
A total of 16 finely tuned speakers –seven mid-range, seven tweeters and two centre bass – provide the acoustic highlights inside the vehicle, with the aluminium ‘harman/kardon’ lettering in the mirror triangles adding an optical flourish.


Adaptive Headlights with Bi-Xenon technology, variable city and motorway light distribution and BMW Selective Beam (anti-dazzle high-beam function) optimally illuminate the road ahead.
While turning, the moving headlights allow the driver to see deep into the curves ahead. To improve short-range visibility, the cornering lights, included in the equipment package, are automatically activated as soon as the turn indicator is switched on or the steering wheel is turned – even when the vehicle is standing.The Adaptive Headlights ensure optimum illumination in every situation on the road, significantly increasing active safety.
BMW Selective Beam (anti-dazzle high-beam function) automatically controls the high-beam headlights, depending on the ambient light conditions and traffic situation, for excellent visibility when driving at night. The system monitors the presence of vehicles in front or oncoming traffic and continuously adjusts the high-beam lights to avoid dazzling other road users. At the same time, the accent lights and the characteristic LED light rings identify the vehicle as a BMW from the very first glance.


A package of intelligent safety measures in the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo help to minimise the risk of accidents – and to give you the reassuring feeling that you’re well protected at all times.
Extremely resistant, large-volume cross-members and the intelligent use of high-strength and ultra high-strength multiphase steels provide maximum protection for the safety bodyshell while maintaining a low weight. The impact energy is diverted to other areas of the bodyshell around the passenger cell, such as the underbody, side frame, bulkhead and roof, and absorbed by deformation zones at the front and rear. In the event of a side collision, protection comes from reinforced structures in the B-pillar and sills, high-strength side-impact stabilisers in the doors as well as robust cross-members in the seat areas.

The front of the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo has various devices to protect pedestrians. A shock absorber is integrated between the bumper carrier and panel to reduced leg injuries in a collision. Furthermore, the bonnet is equipped with deformation elements to reduce the impact energy and thus act as a crumple zone.
