Body and safety: The safest BMW 3-Series yet

The new BMW 3-Series offers its passengers exceptional active and passive safety. Judicious selection of materials, a high-strength structure and an intelligent lightweight design concept allow the body to meet the most exacting standards, and it teams up with highly efficient restraint systems to provide maximum occupant protection. At the same time, the lightweight construction of the new BMW 3-Series makes a significant contribution to the efficiency and agility of the new sports sedan. In addition, an extensive package of active safety components help the driver to avoid accidents or, if a collision is unavoidable, to minimise its consequences. The same goes for the optimised pedestrian protection systems. All in all, the flawlessly assembled overall concept of the new BMW 3-Series makes it an incredibly impressive proposition - not least in terms of safety.
