Like many luxury and sports cars, the 2012 BMW 1-Series hasn't been subjected to crash testing by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) or the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety), but it's outfitted with the standard regiment of modern safety features.

Front, side, and side-curtain airbags are standard, as are ABS, traction control, stability control, tire-pressure monitoring, and daytime running lights. The thin roof support pillars and generous glass spaces make for good visibility, though rearward sight lines can be blocked by the headrests.



Conclusion

Outfitted with the standard regimen of modern safety features, the 2012 BMW 1-Series inspires confidence despite the lack of official crash testing.

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.
