We talked recently here about the latest results of the independent organization EuroNCAP safety tests. One of the three competitors was the BMW 5 Series F10. In the recently article we talked a little about each of the cars that joined the tests. Now, we’ll focus on what we are interested the most: BMW 5 Series F10.
As we told you recently, BMW 5 Series F10 received five stars in Euro NCAP safety tests. There are four categories: Adult, Child, Pedestriand and Safety Assist. The Bavarian model received 95% of total points for occupants protection, 83% for child protection, 78% for pedestrian protection and 100% for Safety Assist, being the first model to achieve all the points at this section!
If pedestrian protection, the BMW model had trouble with the bonnet edge, which offers poor protection for impact with a pedestrian and two areas on the windscreen at the ends of that – even at the side mirrors. On the other hand, the model from Munich scored maximum for the level of the safety assist, being equipped in standard with electronic stability control, maximum active speed control system in standard and warning for not wearing safety belts for all passengers. As we told you, the German model is the first to obtain the maximum score in the Safety Assist category.
