Kelley Blue Book
The 2013 BMW 1-Series has a good list of safety features, but like many luxury vehicles and sports cars, it hasn't been crash-tested by either of the U.S. programs.
Front, side, and side-curtain airbags are standard, as are ABS, traction control, stability control, tire-pressure monitoring, and daytime running lights. And although rearward sight lines can be blocked by the headrests, the rather thin roof pillars, low beltline, and generous glass space all help outward visibility.
The 1-Series lacks U.S. crash-test results, but it's outfitted with the standard regimen of modern safety features.
