2010 Bmw X1 receives 5 stars on the Euro NCAP crash test

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

At the recent Euro NCAP crash tests, the new BMW X1 was included in those models that scored the highest. BMW said that it owes this recognition to the car's comprehensive standard safety features and an effective system of vehicle occupant protection which covers different types of collision.

In a release, BMW says that the X1 carries the high standard of the safety concept developed for the BMW X models.

BMW added that its "extremely stable body structure" provides an ideal basis to ensure that the passenger cell is given maximum protection in the event of a forceful impact. 

The statement further reads that the forces acting on the vehicle are diverted along the clearly defined load paths of the support structures and absorbed by means of amply sized deformation zones.

For the SUV passengers, they're protected by the front, side and curtain head airbags, the belt tensioners and belt force limiters for the front seats as well as the ISOFIX systems for attaching children's seats at the rear.

And there's quite a bit more when it comes to safety. The car also has a driving stability system DSC (Dynamic Stability Control), brake assistant, cornering brake assistant and traction mode DTC (Dynamic Traction Control).
