The security glazing in the new BMW X5 Protection VR6 is made of a security glass laminate. The polycarbonate coating on the inside prevents spalling. It offers protection not just against attacks with blunt instruments and handguns, but also against the world’s most widely used firearm, the AK-47.
BMW uses moulded parts in the new BMW X5 Protection VR6 which precisely follow the contours of the standard model. This way, all the normal airbags can be incorporated, without the cabin feeling any less spacious.
Sit here, and you know you’re safe: the edges of the doors, the places where windows meet frames and the joins between body panels are some of the most vulnerable areas of the vehicle to gunfire. But in the new BMW X5 Protection VR6, these areas are reinforced with steel armour, ensuring that neither bullets nor splinters can penetrate the passenger compartment.
