BMW 1 Series (five-door): Stiff bodyshell.

In an impact situation, the BMW 1 Series bodyshell proves to be unyielding. Special reinforcements in the front and sides of the body and around the occupant cell protect the driver and passengers effectively. The bumpers can completely absorb the forces of impacts at speeds below 4 km/h, leaving the body undamaged. The highly rigid bodyshell also serves to ensure the BMW 1 Series handles with razor-sharp precision and breathtaking agility.
