BMW X3 - Offering Advanced Safety Features

When it comes to the BMW X3's safety features, Troy drivers will find that BMW has been both thoughtful and forward-thinking when it comes to standard and optional safety features. Some standard features on all X3 models that make driving easier and safer include LED headlights & foglights, automatic wipers, rearview camera, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and power-folding, auto-dimming & heated mirrors. As Troy, OH shoppers will see, most of these features have to do with vision, both in rain and at night.

However, the true advanced safety features available on the BMW X3 include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, front cross-traffic alert, and lane keeping assist. These features combine to not only keep Ohio drivers safer, but also make highway driving easier. Other features that can improve the safety and driving experience of the BMW X3 include front & rear parking sensors, a 360-degree camera, and an automated parking system.

BMW X3 - Crash Test Safety Ratings

It should come as no surprise to Troy, OH BMW shoppers that the BMW X3 received excellent crash test safety ratings across the board. From the IIHS, the BMW X3 received the top rating of "Good" in every single crash category, and was rated "Superior" when it comes to many of its safety features, like headlights and driver aides. The NHTSA, which gives star ratings to vehicles, awarded the BMW X3 with a 5-Star overall rating. The X3 also managed a perfect 5-star rating in every crash test they conducted. While its rollover score is a 4/5, the Tesla Model X is the only SUV or crossover to have ever received a 5-Star rating for rollover due to its large batter on the bottom of the vehicle.

Not only does it offer the latest safety tech features, it has also been designed to resist the powerful impacts of real-world accidents.
