After it went through some structural improvements last November, a 2017 BMW 3-Series now qualifies for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick+.
The award, which sees a premium compact four-door earn Good ratings in all five crashworthiness tests, and including the challenging small overlap, where its predecessor was rated Marginal, only applies to a sedan version of the 3-Series.
Additionally, the IIHS engineers found the optional front crash prevention system to be Advanced, and the child seat anchors were rated Marginal, while the best headlights, the curve-adaptive LEDs with the high-beam assist, which are part of the lighting package offered at an extra cost, earned the Acceptable rating.
Joining the 2017 BMW 3-Series on the test banks was a 2-Series Coupe, another Top Safety Pick+ winner. As with its larger sibling, BMW’s smallest coupe earned Good ratings in a small overlap, moderate overlap, side, roof strength and the head restraints, and its optional front crash prevention system was noted as Advanced.
The optional curve-adaptive, the high-intensity discharge lights were rated Good, and so were the child seat anchors.
