Expert Quotes:

Not tested.
IIHS

Not tested.
NHTSA

Braking is phenomenal -- in our 60-0-mph braking test, the M3 came to a halt in just 100 feet, which is among the shortest distances we've ever recorded.
Edmunds



Like most high-dollar high-performance cars, the BMW M3 hasn't been tested by either the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) or IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).

The nearly-identical 3-Series, however, scores top marks from the IIHS, rating "good" in all categories for the coupe and sedan, with the convertibles rating "marginal" in side impact protection. The NHTSA hasn't yet rated the 2011 3-Series.

Dual front, side, and curtain airbags are standard; so are anti-lock brakes, as well as stability and traction control. A rearview camera and adaptive cruise control are options. Visibility in all three versions is good, with convertibles suffering a bit to the rear quarters when the roof is raised.

 


Conclusion

The 2011 BMW M3 has all the usual safety gear, but hasn't been crash-tested.

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.
