While crash-test results for the 2011 BMW Z4 are unavailable, neither of the major agencies that conduct crash tests on U.S.-market vehicles have tested this roadster.

Standard safety equipment includes dual front airbags, as well as seat-mounted airbags that inflate to cover the head and thorax. Pop-up roll hoops are built in behind the rear seats and deploy with the airbags in a rollover. The stability control system also has a sport-driving mode and simulates a limited-slip differential to help the Z4 corner more effectively, while the brakes have a drying function as well as a Brake StartOff function for uphill starts. Active cruise control is standard; automatic headlamps are a new option for 2010, but lane-departure systems and a rearview camera are not offered.

Visibility is a step better than in most roadsters, too. Compared to the previous Z4, the side windows are 40 percent larger and the back window is 52 percent larger, which means you don't get the issues that make it a pain to drive in the city with the top raised.

Conclusion

The 2011 BMW Z4 has an impressive set of safety credentials for a roadster.

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.
