NHTSA




Neither the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) nor the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) have yet crash-tested the 2012 BMW Z4.

Standard safety equipment includes dual front airbags; seat-mounted head and thorax airbags; pop-up roll hoops that deploy in a rollover; stability and traction control; brake drying function for better wet stopping; hill-start assist; active cruise control; and anti-lock brakes.

Optional safety upgrades include automatic headlamps, park distance control, and BMW Assist service with Bluetooth. Advanced features like lane departure warning, rearview camera, and blind spot monitoring aren't available, however.

Compared to many roadsters, the Z4's visibility is impressive, with large side windows and minimal rearward obstructions--though with the top up, it can be more difficult to see rearward.

Conclusion

A long list of electronic and passive safety measures make up for the lack of government crash testing on the 2012 BMW Z4.

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.
