2011 BMW 5 Series Drives Off With Top Safety Pick Award


You can bet that BMW is celebrating this win. The redesigned 2011 BMW 5 series just earned good ratings in all four safety evaluations, garnering it an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick status among large cars.

Adding to the accolades is the fact that this first 5 series ever to earn the Top Safety Pick award, not to mention that its also the first BMW to accomplish this feat since the Institute implemented a new rollover test requirement.

Vehicles that earn Top Safety Picks earn the highest ratings for front, side, rollover, and rear crash protection, and that have electronic stability control (standard on the BMW) 5 series.

The biggest improvement was made with the good rating for side impact protection the previous generation 5 was rated only marginal in the same test. An IIHS side impact test represents a hit from an SUV or pickup.
