Side-impact-protection






Side Impact Protection

Robust body, intelligent response: in the event of a collision from the side, an entire range of components work together to give you and your passengers the best possible protection.

An impact from the side presents particular dangers, as there is a far smaller deformation zone available to absorb the impact forces. BMW automobiles are designed with a highly effective side impact protection system. This ranges from highly stable doors and a particularly robust B column to specialised head and side protection airbags.

Diagonal aluminium cross-members are embedded within each door and ensure that the doors and side walls are exceptionally strong and stiff, preventing intrusion of external objects into the cabin. Furthermore, extra-strong locks and hinges, reinforcement in the seat and armrest areas and additional synthetic absorption elements all help reduce the impact forces that are transmitted to the cabin.
