The 2009 BMW 1-Series doesn't have crash-test scores on the books yet—but it does have plenty of safety features and BMW's reputation for quality in its corner. Editors at TheCarConnection.com believe the 1-Series to be a smart pick for safety.

Kelley Blue Book points out that the BMW 1-Series offers "standard front, front-side and side-curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability and traction controls." These are features that consumers have come to expect from automobiles today—and BMW's mix of standards and smart surprises pleases most drivers. ConsumerGuide praises the 2009 BMW 1-Series' "antiskid system, tire-pressure monitor, [and] daytime running lights."

Visibility is generally good in the 2009 BMW 1-Series. ConsumerGuide finds that on the BMW 2009 1-Series, "thin pillars in the coupe provide fine visibility to all directions, though wide front headrests can get in the way when backing." Visibility is considerably worse on convertibles.

Conclusion

The 2009 BMW 1-Series offers all the expected safety features and manages to pull some tricks out of its sleeve.

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.
