Contactless opening of the tailgate.
You’re back from shopping, standing in front of your car with your hands full, and you want to load the bags into the luggage compartment. The last thing you want to do is search for your car key. And you don’t have to thanks to the optional Comfort Access system with contactless opening of the tailgate.
A short, precise foot movement under the rear bumper is all it takes to trigger the sensor and open the tailgate. It unlocks and then swings open thanks to either spring-loaded struts or the automatic tailgate operation (depending on the model). Sensors installed at different heights in the rear bumper detect the foot movement of the person trying to open the luggage compartment.
This innovative BMW ConnectedDrive feature makes opening and loading the luggage compartment more convenient. Access is only granted when the system also detects the presence of an authorised car key.
