New BMW X1 receives score of 0 in IIHS tests, Honda, Toyota, Subaru and Volvo lead
With the poor crash test ratings and now this,BMW really needs to get their act together. I've been a BMW guy for close to two decades now but once my current lease is up,that's it. More Boring cars but somehow less safe ? Usually boring at least results in better safety
The IIHS tested 11 models from the 2018 and 2019 model years. Only four completely stopped and did not crash into the pedestrian dummies—which, amazingly, feature realistic moving legs—in each of three tests. The Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV4, and Volvo XC40 all scored the top Superior rating. Earning the mid-grade Advanced rating were the Chevrolet Equinox, Hyundai Kona, Kia Sportage, Mazda CX-5, and Nissan Rogue. The Mitsubishi Outlander scored the lowest Basic rating, while the BMW X1 plowed through the dummies so hard that the IIHS gave it a zero.
