2017 BMW 5 Series Named Top Safety Pick +

June 6th, 2017 by

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) declared that the 2017 BMW 5 Series had been named a "Top Safety Pick +." This award recognizes BMW for continuing the company's long-term commitment to automotive safety.

The 2017 BMW 5 Series received the award due to its performance over the following five crash tests: small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints, as well as an optional front crash prevention system that received a "Superior" rating and headlights that earned a "Good" rating.

The IIHS noted that the structure and body design of the latest-generation 5 Series help improve the vehicle's results in the small overlap front crash test, with the driver's space is at a lower risk of significant injury in a real-world crash due to minimal intrusion at the footrest. The 5 Series also earned a "Superior" rating in front crash prevention when it is equipped with available Frontal Collision Warning with either City Collision Mitigation or with Extended Collision Mitigation.

Featuring standard safety features such as Dynamic Stability Control, Cornering Brake Control and Dynamic Traction Control, as well as available safety features like Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure Warning and Cross Traffic Alert, the seventh generation BMW 5 Series is the most innovative version offered yet.
