2017 BMW 5 Series Receives ‘Top Safety Pick+’ Award From IIHS

2017 BMW 5 Series


?With its high-strength frame and suite of cutting-edge safety features, the redesigned 5 Series is a smart choice for safety-concerned drivers. In fact, the sedan was recently awarded the highest honor from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: Top Safety Pick +.

Earning a Top Safety Pick + designation is no easy feat—vehicles must undergo rigorous testing and meet several high benchmarks in order to qualify. However, the 5 Series passed with flying colors, earning top scores across five different crash tests: small overlap front, moderate overlap front, roof strength, side and head restraint. The sedan’s optional front crash prevention system was also ranked as “Superior.”

On top of that, the 5 Series earned the highest possible rating for its adaptive LED headlights (when equipped with optional automatic high beam assist), making it one of the only vehicles in its segment to do so.

The 2017 BMW 5 Series, for sale now in Lincoln, comes standard with antilock brakes, dynamic stability and traction control, cornering brake control, side curtain airbags, front and rear parking sensors and BMW emergency services. Advanced driver-assist safety systems, including blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, semi-automated steering and front crash prevention with automatic emergency braking, are also available.
