2013 BMW 5-Series Safety

Safety

The BMW 5-Series is one of the few luxury sport sedans for which full crash-test results have been issued from both U.S. agencies.

The NHTSA gives it five stars in all, with just a single flawed result, a four-star score for front-impact protection for the driver.

The 2013 BMW 5-Series is a safety standout—and that holds true whether you value passive crash protection, high-tech active safety, or fleet-footed accident avoidance.

The IIHS gives it "good" scores across the board, and calls it a Top Safety Pick.

Every 5-Series has advanced safety features standard or available, like rear-seat side airbags, and brakes that spin to dry themselves before an accident, for better stopping power. Blind-spot monitors, lane-departure warnings, and automatic high beams are available.
