The Germans from BMW recently announced through a press release that the new X3 (also known as F25) managed to obtain the maximum safety rating at the Euro NCAP crash tests. According to the German company, the second-generation X3 managed to achieve this result thanks to its extremely stable body structure along the front, side and curtain head airbags. The long list of safety systems such as Dynamic Stability Control system (DSC), Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), ABS, ESP and more, helped the German model too.
“Thanks to its segment-leading dynamic handling and versatility, the new BMW X3 has emerged as a highly successful model in the international car markets within a matter of months,” says the company.
Euro NCAP tested the BMW X3 2.0 Diesel version, the model obtaining the 5 star rating with a score of 88% for adult occupant, 83% for child occupant and 53% for pedestrians.
Euro NCAP also awarded BMW last year for the Assist Advanced eCall, a system which automatically initializes an emergency call in case of an accident. This system also localizes the vehicle and provides all the critical information for a quick intervention.
