The standard safety equipment you get on the 2015 BMW 4-Series includes a full suite of airbags, stability control, adaptive brake lights, and anti-lock brakes. The 4-Series also includes an Automatic Collision Notification system that relays important information to emergency responders. Bluetooth is standard, too, but a rearview camera is an option on the more basic models—yes even though we're speaking of a model that costs more than $40k and has less than ideal outward visibility.

You can crank up the 4-Series' safety margins—and its sticker price—with the rearview camera and park distance sensors, as well as a surround-view camera system that has a top view and a bird's-eye view of obstacles approaching at low speeds. Full-LED headlamps with automatic high beams are also available. Optional blind-spot monitors are coupled with a lane-departure warning system include a camera-based collision-warning system with braking capability. Active cruise control is also offered, and it has the ability to stop the car, and to restart and carry a slow pace with traffic. The only thing we have trouble justifying (as it feels like a novelty after the initial 'wow' and a few demos to friends) is parking assist, a feature that allows the car to parallel-park itself.

There haven't yet been crash-test ratings released from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for the 2015 BMW 4-Series.

The 3-Series sedans have earned impressive ratings from the IIHS, although the 4-Series is different enough such that its scores won't merely carry over. We're also curious whether it will share the 3er's "marginal" score on the IIHS' new small-overlap crash test, or whether it will do better.


 

Conclusion

BMW has a great record for safety with the 3-Series, but there are no ratings yet for the 4-Series models.

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.
