► 2012 BMW 3 Series CRASH TEST
The passenger compartment of the 3 Series remained stable in the frontal
impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of
the driver and passenger. BMW showed that a similar level of protection
would be provided for occupants of different sizes and to those sat in
different positions. In the side barrier test, all body regions were well
protected and the car scored maximum points. In the more severe side pole
test, protection of the chest and abdomen was adequate and that of the head
and pelvis was good. The seat and head restraint provided good protection
against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.
Based on dummy restults in the dynamic tests, the 3 Series scored maximum
points for its protection of the 18 month infant, and lost only a fraction
of a point for protection of the 3 year old. In the frontal impact, forward
movement of the head of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward facing
restraint, was not excessive. In the side impact, both dummies were
properly contained by the protective shells of their restraints, minimising
the likelihood of contact with parts of the car's interior. A switch is
available as an option to deactivate the passenger airbag, allowing a
rearward facing child restraint to be used in the passenger seat. This was
not assessed as it is not standard equipment. There were clear warnings of
the dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in that seating position
without having deactivated the airbag.
Both the bumper and the front edge of the bonnet provided good protection
to pedestrians and the car scored maximum points in these areas. In almost
all areas where a child's head might strike, the bonnet provided good
protection but was predominantly poor in those areas likely to be struck by
an adult's head.
