Woodcliff Lake, NJ – May 26, 2016 10:00 am EDT / 7:00 am PDT The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety today named the 2016 BMW X1 a “Top Safety Pick+”, the Institute’s highest rating, continuing the company’s long-standing commitment to offering class-leading safety with each new model. In order to earn “Top Safety Pick+”, a car must receive a rating of “good”, the Institute’s highest rating, in all five crashworthiness tests and an available front crash prevention system that earns an advanced or superior rating.

Like its predecessor, the all-new 2016 BMW X1 earns good ratings in the moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. The BMW X1’s new body and structure design boosted its performance in the small overlap front crash test, earning a “good” rating. Overall, the new BMW X1 gained an additional 1.7 inches in height, 0.9 inches in width and decreased by 1.1 inches in length.

The BMW X1’s newly available front crash prevention system earns an advanced rating from IIHS. In the track tests at 12 mph, impact speed was reduced by an average of 10 mph. In the 25 mph test, impact speed was reduced by 7 mph. The system includes a forward collision warning component that meets National Highways Traffic Safety Administration criteria.

The 2016 BMW X1 also features a high-level of standard safety features including BMW Assist eCall, BMW TeleService, Dynamic Stability Control, Brake Dry Assist, Cornering Brake Control and Dynamic Traction Control. Optional features such as Lane Departure Warning, Frontal Collision Warning including Pedestrian Warning and City Collision Mitigation are also available.
