The aim is to provide the maximum possible protection for the occupants of the BMW M5 Sedan and other road users. This is made possible through an effective combination of intelligent technology and a new generation of steels.
The optional protective concept Active Protection from BMW ConnectedDrive in the BMW M5 Sedan uses forward-thinking technology to safeguard the driver and passengers from injury in extreme circumstances. The seat belt tensioners built into the front seats actively enhance the function of the seat belts, while automatic sliding discs ensure the side airbags function optimally.
The BMW M5 Sedan also offers a high level of passive safety. Multi-phase and warm, restructured steels are intelligently combined to provide superior protection for passengers. They also absorb and divert the impact energy by selective deformation − which additionally protects the other party in the accident. If there is a collision with a pedestrian, an automatic system lifts the bonnet to cushion the impact.
