In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing, the M sedans have earned top 'good' results in every category, and they've also earned the Top Safety Pick accolade. They've also earned five stars overall in federal NCAP testing, including four stars for frontal impact and an excellent five stars for side impact.
In addition to dual front, side and curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes; active headrests; and traction and stability control; parking sensors and a rearview camera are among the standard features.The advanced safety options are where the M sedans really shows its safety strengths--by potentially helping you avoid an accident altogether.
