Security without compromise. The optimal amount of security depends on the individual circumstances of the driver and passengers, where they are located, the challenges they face in their daily routine and the public attention they attract. BMW is the only automobile manufacturer that offers three safety category levels according to your requirements. BMW Security Vehicles are designed to withstand a range of three risk situations – street crime (attacks with blunt objects and handguns up to a calibre of .44 Magnum), organised crime (attacks with the most commonly used automatic weapon in the world, the AK-47) and attacks with explosive devices and armour-piercing weapons. Security is paramount to BMW and so is your comfort. Our options allow drivers and passengers to choose the level of security that best meets their needs.
How much protection you need depends on your circumstances – where you live and work, what your job involves, and how high your public profile is. BMW is the only manufacturer that takes into account these differing needs by offering three levels of security, all of them drawing on more than 30 years’ experience of building armoured vehicles. As such, BMW offers the world’s most comprehensive range of solutions for safe road travel – meaning everyone can get just what they need to feel safe.
The BMW Security Vehicles feature an intelligent combination of lightweight and robust materials that meet the strictest safety requirements while adding as little weight as possible. Pre-shaped aramid and polyethylene parts are combined with ultra-strong special steel to protect vulnerable joins in the vehicle’s structure. This doesn’t affect the vehicle’s responsiveness and agile handling
With the BMW Security Vehicles you do not have to compromise on anything that matters to you. BMW has over 30 years’ experience of developing and building armoured vehicles – and is constantly innovating to protect not just you, but also the sensation of Sheer Driving Pleasure. So you can be absolutely confident that you are getting the best possible protection, and are not making any compromises to get it. Because from the first design sketches to the final coat of polish, it’s all our own work. Personal security is too vital to be entrusted to anyone but real experts. Naturally, every BMW is built with enormous precision and care, and the strictest quality standards are adhered to throughout the global BMW manufacturing network. This is why only BMW offers maximum protection – made by BMW.
Because protection is all the more effective when people don’t know you’ve got it. Anonymity is a powerful security measure. That is why BMW has put so much effort into protecting their cars in a way that it is not noticeable by others.
BMW ConnectedDrive reflects the philosophy of integration of the vehicle, driver and environment in an intelligent network. Short distances are bridged by ultrasound while mobile radio technology is used for the larger ones. The intelligent interaction between online services, Driver Assistance systems, call centre services and integration solutions for smartphones supports BMW drivers in numerous ways – whether it’s by providing more comfort, the right information at the right time or the reassuring feel of being safe on all roads.
Training for the worst-case scenario is a good way to make sure it never happens. The BMW approach to security goes beyond just the vehicle itself. Specially-tailored driver training courses are also available, teaching skills that are useful to any Security Vehicle driver and demonstrating how to get the most out of the BMW X5 Security, the BMW X5 Security Plus and the BMW 7 Series High Security. In three different types of trainings, drivers are given the opportunity to practice the best ways to handle dangerous situations – because that way, hopefully these situations will never arise. Please refer to the brochure for detailed information on the three BMW Security Driver Training courses we offer.
