You’re standing behind your BMW 3 Series Touring with your hands full of shopping and want to load the boot. So now you need to search your pockets to find the car key. Or do you? No, not any more. With innovative Comfort Access as an option, you can open the tailgate without making contact.
One brief movement of your foot below the rear bumper is all it takes for a sensor to activate the opening of the tailgate, which then unlocks and springs open or, depending on the vehicle, opens automatically with the aid of automatic tailgate operation. 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.
