If you’ve been on the prowl for a BMW car in Louisiana, you’re no doubt drawn to the BMW brand’s inimitable combination of styling, luxury, power, and fuel efficiency. But did you know that BMW vehicles are also some of the safest you’ll find in the luxury segment? It’s true, and safety is a big (yet underrated) reason why BMW AG is one of the world’s most respected automakers.
Three BMW models have earned the elite safety status that comes with being named a Top Safety Pick (TSP) by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS): the 2017 BMW 2 Series, 2017 BMW 3 Series, and 2017 BMW X1. In fact, the 2017 BMW 2 Series and 2017 BMW 3 Series earned the ultra-elite marque of Top Safety Pick+ (TSP+). As for the 2017 BMW XI, it’s undoubtedly one of the safest compact luxury SUVs around, with a TSP rating acquired by acing the IIHS’ six stringent safety exams, including a top rating for front crash protection.
The rare TSP+ air occupied by the 2017 BMW 2 Series and the 2017 BMW 3 Series is reserved for those vehicles that not only garner top scores in the aforementioned tests, but also achieve an exemplary headlights rating. This latter criteria is new for 2017, and it figures that the BMW brand’s headlights would already be innovative enough for a more-than-passing grade.
These three vehicles are well-built and stacked with advanced safety technology. For example, the 2017 BMW 3 Series comes with a full slate of standard protective features, along with cutting-edge options like forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and more.
