The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't crash-tested the latest BMW X5, but does give it a four-star rollover rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) hasn't tested the X5 either, but did crash-test the structurally identical 2012 model, awarding it top marks of "good" in frontal offset, rear, and side-impact tests.

The 2013 X5's standard safety equipment list is fairly extensive. All X5s come with: dual front and side airbags; adaptive brake lights; front and rear head-protecting airbags; active head rests; rollover protection system; trailer stabilization; and hill descent control.

The X5's large side mirrors, ample glass size, and automatic rearview camera also aid rearward visibility.

Conclusion

Though it hasn't yet been crash-tested, previous versions of the BMW X5 have scored well, and there's ample standard safety equipment in the 2013 model.

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.
