2009 BMW 7 Series Crash Test Video
As was to be expected,the premium sedan performed well in different types of accident scenarios, which included frontal impact, side impact and overturning against a deformable barrier. The tests did not include a front-to-front crash test with another moving vehicle, but undoubtedly, the 7 Series would have performed much better than the cars we presented you yesterday.
"Safety for BMW is a holistic approach. The term 'integral safety', as we use it in the BMW Group means we start with normal driving, we improve the normal driving and consider measurements to improve critical situations for the driver to manage," Klaus Kompass, BMW Head of Vehicle Safety said.
As you can see, the 7 Series managed to overcome the test without serious threats to the crash test dummies "life". It's a reassuring video, especially after yesterday's IIHS videos and it further stresses the importance of size during a crash.
