Style, performance, speed, comfort, and technology aren’t the only things that BMW focuses on. They know that safety is a high priority amongst drivers as well, and why shouldn’t it be? Anyone inside a BMW should feel totally secure, and the top brand wants nothing more than to make sure that every occupant is as safe as possible every time they get in and buckle up. Not surprisingly, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the 2017 BMW X1 and 2017 BMW 2 Series as Top Safety Picks.
In order to receive such a designation, a vehicle must receive a “good” rating in all five crash tests. “Good” is the best rating that a vehicle can achieve, and BMW once again does so with aplomb. In fact, the X1 has been awarded this designation for a second time in a row, earning praise for its body structure and design. All that and the X1 offers more space, increased efficiency, and better technology than ever.
Many cars struggle with the IIHS ratings; “Good” is difficult to achieve in certain tests, and plenty of vehicles receive subpar ratings. The small overlap front test, for example, is by far the most difficult to pass. However, both the 2017 BMW X1 and 2017 BMW 2 Series were able to pass with flying colors. Well done, BMW engineers and designers; drivers can breathe a big sigh of relief whenever they slide inside.
If safety is one of your biggest vehicle-related concerns, BMW has your back – and front and side. Talk to a Braman representative about all the safety features that the 2017 BMW X1 and 2 Series have to offer.
