2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo: Adjustable Hatch Height

February 18, 2015

A few weeks ago I shot a video of our BMW's power liftgate in action. It did not break YouTube, but I thought it well illustrated the unique hatchbackness of our long-term 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo.

However, what I didn't show you was the adjustability of the hatch's opening height which is accomplished with just a few twists and turns of BMW's iDrive dial.

There are four settings, from highest, which is what I used in the video, to lowest, which keeps your tailgate from smashing itself into a low ceiling, but obviously doesn't leave much space for loading and unloading.

The car's owner's manual says, "Ensure that there is sufficient clearance when the tailgate opens; otherwise, damage may result. Adjust the opening height of the tailgate according to the given situation. The tailgate opens automatically to the adjusted opening height."
