SunReflective Technology is based on a special pigment during the treatment of the leather, which reflects direct sunlight in the invisible waveband. As a result, the surfaces do not become as hot as usual and maintain a pleasantly low temperature. Compared to conventional leather, SunReflective Technology keeps your steering wheel and seats up to 25 °C cooler. The difference is especially large for dark-coloured upholstery.
However, even pale leather is kept noticeably cooler thanks to SunReflective Technology. Developed by BMW Individual, SunReflective Technology guarantees a pleasant surface temperature even after exposure to strong direct sunlight - a significant bonus when you love driving a Convertible.
