2012 BMW 1-Series Safety

8.0
Safety

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.

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