ANCAP 5 Star Safety Rating - Tested in 2015

The BMW X2 was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in February 2018. The ANCAP safety rating for the X2 is based on testing of the BMW X1 released in October 2015. The BMW X2 shares a platform and the majority of its structure with the BMW X1. As the X2 has a slightly different side frame and new bumper front to the X1, additional side impact, pole and pedestrian impact tests have been performed on the X2. These tests and further data provided by BMW shows that the 2015 rating of the X1 can also be applied to the X2. This rating applies to all front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive X2 variants.

Child Protection Test

Both child dummies were positioned in rearward-facing child restraints for the frontal offset and side impact tests. The vehicle scored maximum points for its protection of the 18 month and 3 year dummies in these tests.

Pedestrian Summary

A ‘pop-up’ bonnet is fitted to both the X1 and X2. Sensors in the bumper detect when a pedestrian has been struck and actuators raise the bonnet to provide greater clearance between the bonnet surface and the hard structures in the engine compartment.

Results on the bonnet surface were almost entirely GOOD, with some areas rated ADEQUATE for protection to a pedestrian’s head. Some POOR results were recorded on the front edge of the windscreen and on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper scored maximum points for the protection it offered to pedestrians’ legs. Protection of the pelvic region was predominantly POOR.

The pedestrian-detecting autonomous emergency braking system is fitted as standard to the BMW X1 and X2 but was not tested as part of 2015 test protocols.
