2019 BMW 1 Series - Crash Tests

The passenger compartment of the 1-series remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of theknees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. BMW showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants ofdifferent sizes and to those sitting in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the driver was good or adequate.Protection of the rear passenger was good apart from the chest, for which dummy readings of compression indicated weak protection. Thecar scored maximum points in both side impact tests, with good protection of all critical body areas in both the barrier impact and the moresevere pole test. A geometric assessment of the rear seats and head restraints indicated good protection against whiplash injuries in theevent of a rear-end collision. Tests on the front seats demonstrated only marginal whiplash protection. The autonomous emergencybraking system performed well in all tests of its functionality at the low speeds typical of city driving. However, the points for AEB City werenot awarded as good front head restraint performance is a pre-requisite for the additional reward for active safety.
