The 2017 BMW 3 Series received today the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+. The 3 Series went through some structural improvements last November.

The premium sedan earned ‘Good’ ratings in all five crashworthiness tests, including the challenging small overlap, where its predecessor was rated ‘Marginal’.

The IIHS engineers also found the optional front crash prevention system to be ‘Advanced’, the child seat anchors were rated ‘Marginal’, while the best headlights, the curve-adaptive LEDs with high-beam assist, which are part of the lighting package offered at an extra cost, earned an ‘Acceptable’ rating.

Another award winner was the 2 Series Coupe which received the same highest distinction. The coupe earned ‘Good’ ratings in the small overlap, moderate overlap, side, roof strength and head restraints, and its optional front crash prevention system was noted as ‘Advanced’. The optional curve-adaptive, high-intensity discharge lights were rated ‘Good’, and so were the child seat anchors.
