front headrests interfere with over-the-shoulder view
ConsumerGuide

Despite a lack of testing data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the 2008 BMW 7-Series comes with a long list of standard safety features.

Cars.com notes that for this 2008 BMW, "Eight airbags are standard, including front knee airbags, side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for both rows." Furthermore, this BMW 2008 base model comes equipped with "four-wheel-disc brakes, traction control and an electronic stability system." This source adds, "side-impact airbags for the backseat are optional."

Edmunds reports that "front and rear parking sensors and a four-year subscription to BMW Assist telematics are standard" on every 7-Series 2008 BMW. Purchasers of this BMW 2008 also receive "a brake-drying feature that periodically wipes the brake rotors when the windshield wipers are in use" and can opt for "a Night Vision system, which uses an infrared camera to monitor obstacles nearly 1,000 feet ahead of your 7 Series [BMW 2008]."

The one thing that keeps this BMW 2008 from getting a perfect score is a visibility problem as revealed by ConsumerGuide, which notes "front headrests interfere with over-the-shoulder view."

Conclusion

The 2008 BMW 7-Series earns nearly top marks for safety.

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.
