Car and Driver



The 2014 BMW X3 promises solid occupant safety, but like other high-end German luxury vehicles, it offers some innovative active-safety options. 

The X3 has earned top "good" ratings in all Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests. It hasn't yet been rated in the new IIHS small overlap frontal test, however; and it also lacks scores from the federal government.

Standard safety features on the X3 include all the usual airbags, active front head restraints, anti-lock brakes, and stability systems. In Sport mode, drivers of a navigation-and-iDrive-equipped X3 can customize that Sport mode for differing levels of stability control. A stability-control mode with a higher threshold of intervention also aids traction and confidence in snow.

A head-up system is also on offer and might help reduce driver distraction. And a Driver Assistance Package includes a rearview camera with Top View, as well as Park Distance Control.

Conclusion

Top Safety Pick status and excellent handling are a good starting point, but there are some great active-safety options worth adding.

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.
