Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Frontal Offset Test Image
Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 5.84 pts (out of 8)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 3.12 pts
Upper Legs 1 pts
Lower Legs 3.56 pts

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset test. The driver’s knee airbag deployed incorrectly and the driver’s upper legs were penalised. Structures in the dash were a potential source of injury for the driver’s knees and protection of the driver’s upper legs was rated WEAK. Protection of the driver chest and lower legs was ADEQUATE. Dummy readings for the passenger showed GOOD protection for all critical body regions.

In the full width frontal test, protection was ADEQUATE for the chest of both the driver and rear passenger. The penalty for the driver’s knee airbag deployment in the frontal offset test was also applied to the full width test, resulting in upper leg protection being classified as ADEQUATE. GOOD protection was offered for all other critical body regions of the driver and rear passenger.

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, protection of the neck of the 10 year dummy was ADEQUATE, while protection offered to all other critical body regions for both dummies was GOOD. Protection in the side impact test was GOOD with maximum points scored for both child dummies.

The BMW X5 is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the second row outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all second row seating positions. Top tethers are not available in the third row.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed GOOD results in second row seating positions.

Installation of child restraints in the third row is not recommended as there are no top tether achorages.

Pedestrian Summary

The BMW X5 has an ‘active’ bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian is struck and actuators lift the bonnet to provide greater clearance from stiff components in the engine bay. The vehicle was tested with the bonnet in the raised position and GOOD or ADEQUATE results were recorded over most of the bonnet area, with some WEAK and POOR results recorded at the front of the bonnet. The bumper provided mostly GOOD protection to pedestrians’ legs however protection of the pelvis was POOR.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. The AEB system showed GOOD performance in pedestrian test scenarios, in both daylight and low light. GOOD performance was also seen in cyclist test scenarios, with collisions avoided or mitigated in all scenarios, earning full points.
