BMW 7 Body and safety: Optimised protection and intelligent lightweight design as a founding principle.







Published by Gerald Ferreira Date: May 25, 2012
Categories: BMW, BMW 7 Series

The BMW 7 Series is built around an extremely rigid passenger cell that strikes a perfect balance between weight reduction on the one hand and solid construction on the other, enabling it to satisfy the most stringent safety standards. Large supporting structures with a high load-bearing capacity and the intelligent use of high and ultra-high-tensile multi-phase steels coupled with a large number of aluminium components maximise the strength of the safety passenger cell, while keeping weight low.

BMW 7 Series

The combination of aluminium roof and steel body is unique in this segment. Quite apart from the weight saving of some seven kilograms over a steel roof, the aluminium construction has the effect of lowering the vehicle's centre of gravity resulting in even sharper handling. The body's bonnet, front side panels, front spring struts and doors are all likewise made of aluminium on the BMW 7 Series. The doors alone shave a whole 22 kilograms or so off the weight. By incorporating a high-tech mix of materials, body strength has been increased by around 60 per cent compared to its predecessor, while torsional resistance is now some 20 per cent higher too. Not only do these advances boost passive safety, they form the ideal basis for majestic handling qualities.

Individual protection at every seat. The exemplary crash responses of the body, including precisely defined deformation zones, provide the best possible basis for the optimum design and set-up of the car's restraint systems. The BMW 7 Series is equipped as standard with front and side airbags for the driver and front passenger, plus head airbags for both rows of seats. Depending on the nature of the crash, integrated safety electronics ensure that only those airbags that are able to provide effective protection are actually deployed. Airbags that are not required therefore continue to be ready for action in the event of a possible secondary collision. All seats are fitted with three-point inertia-reel seat belts, and the driver and front passenger also have the benefit of belt latch tensioners.

Active head restraints lower the risk of injury. To guard against whiplash injuries following a collision from the rear, the front seats are fitted with crash-activated head restraints as standard that are controlled by the safety electronics. In the event of such a collision, the system responds by causing the front part of the head restraint to shoot forwards by up to 60 millimetres and upwards by a maximum of 40 millimetres. The effect of this is to narrow the distance to the occupant's head before it starts to be thrown back by the force of the impact. Thanks to the active head restraints, there is therefore less risk of sustaining cervical spine injuries or hyperextension.

To minimise the risk of a collision occurring in the first place, an array of electronic aids can be found in the BMW 7 Series that make an active contribution to driving safety. The functions of the main assistance systems have already been described in detail in the chapter on BMW ConnectedDrive, but the most noteworthy accident prevention features include: the new full-LED headlights with anti-dazzle High-Beam Assistant that are making their debut in the BMW 7 Series, Adaptive Headlights including cornering lights and variable light distribution, the Active Protection system with Attentiveness assistant featuring an eCall function and automatic vehicle location, plus, to limit the risk of rear-end collisions, adaptive brake lights. If the driver brakes very heavily and the ABS system has to take corrective action, the LED brake lights flash conspicuously as a warning to drivers behind that they too should brake as hard as possible. After the vehicle has been braked to a particularly sharp stop, the hazard warning lights will additionally switch on automatically.
