5 ANCAP Star RatingANCAP Logo


ANCAP 2017 5 star

The BMW X4 was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in September 2018 with build dates commencing July 2018. The ANCAP safety rating for the X4 is based on testing of the BMW X3 released in 2017. Additional side impact and oblique pole tests were performed on the X4 due to differences in side structure to confirm the results. This ANCAP safety rating applies to xDrive20d and xDrive30i variants. Other variants are currently unrated.

Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, protection of the neck of the 10 year old child dummy was rated as MARGINAL. Otherwise, protection of both child dummies was GOOD or ADEQUATE.

In the side impact test, protection of both child dummies was GOOD for all critical body areas.

Pedestrian Summary

The BMW X4 has an ‘active’ bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian has been struck and the bonnet lifts to provide greater clearance to the hard structures in the engine compartment. The vehicle was tested with the bonnet in the raised position with results showing GOOD or ADEQUATE protection over most of the bonnet surface. The protection provided to pedestrians’ legs was GOOD at all test locations, however the protection provided to the pelvis was POOR.

The X4 is fitted with an autonomous emergency braking system capable of recognising and reacting to pedestrians. In tests of its effectiveness, the system performed adequately, with collisions avoided or mitigated in several test scenarios and speeds.
