2012 BMW X6 Safety

9.0
Safety
Due to its luxury pricing and rather exclusive nature, the 2012 BMW X6 hasn't been crash tested by either the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) or the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).

The X6 is, however, based on the same core structure as the X5, which scores top marks of "good" in tests by the IIHS. While it can't be assured that the X6 would score equally well due to its slightly different shape, it's a strong indicator of the X6's crash-worthy design.

Standard safety equipment on the X6 includes front, side, and side-curtain airbags; stability and traction control (with M Dynamic Mode enhancements on the X6 M); hill-descent control; and anti-lock brakes.

The 2012 BMW X6 hasn't been subjected to crash testing, but it comes with a strong complement of safety features and has BMW's engineering to back it up.

Optional safety upgrades include a backup camera, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warning system.
