Although neither of the U.S. safety agencies have crash-tested the Z4, it offers an impressive array of safety features.

Front and side airbags, adaptive brake lights, and several layers of advanced stability and brake control systems all contribute to the Z4's active and passive safety, and in an accident a system will even cut fuel flow, turns on the hazard lights, and unlocks the doors in the event of an accident.

Optional safety upgrades include automatic headlamps, park distance control, and BMW Assist service with Bluetooth. Advanced features like lane departure warning, rearview camera, and blind spot monitoring aren't available, however.

Side windows are quite large, and there's no high tail getting in the way of rearward vision, so outward visibility is better than in most other roadsters or convertibles.

 

 

Conclusion

There's plenty on the Z4's list of safety features to make up for its lack of crash-test ratings.

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.
