Car and Driver



Standard safety features on the 2011 X3 include all the usual airbags, active front head restraints, anti-lock brakes, and stability systems. In Sport mode, drivers of a navigation-and-iDrive-equipped X3 can customize that Sport mode for differing levels of stability control. A stability-control mode with a higher threshold of intervention also aids traction and confidence in snow.

The new 2011 BMW X3 hasn't yet been crash-tested or rated for safety by either of the major U.S. agencies. The last-generation X3 wasn't tested by the federal government, though it did do well in IIHS tests, with top 'good' frontal and side-impact ratings.

Conclusion

The 2011 BMW X3 has a respectable set of safety features, and it could be better than average among taller crossover wagons in avoiding an accident.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
