Safety
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't crash-tested the 2012 BMW X5, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has, awarding it top marks of "good" in frontal offset, rear, and side-impact tests.

In addition to the solid safety marks, the 2012 X5 comes with a range of standard safety equipment. Dual front and side airbags; pre-tensioning seatbelts; front and rear head-protecting airbags; adaptive brake lights; active head rests; hill descent control; trailer stabilization; rollover protection system; and a central locking system are standard on every X5.

The X5's large side mirros and automatic rear-view camera also help aid visibility.

Strong safety scores and abundant standard safety equipment put 2012 X5 buyers on solid ground.
