RICHMOND, Va. - The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has a test to measure how well crash avoidance systems keep you safe in your car. They tested 24 cars and SUVs that offer front crash prevention systems which warn drivers they are about to hit something. Many cars also have an auto-braking system that makes vehicles stop by themselves. The test is all to see which systems work best.
The link for the full test results is at iihs.org and here is the results of the Institute's test:
BMW 5 series
BMW 2 series
BMW 3 series
BMW X5 series
BMW 3 Series
The Institute says cars and SUVs will have to earn an "advanced" rating or better to win a "2015 Top Safety Pick Award" which will be announced in December.
