Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset and side impact tests, protection of the 10 year and 6 year dummies was GOOD and maximum points were scored in these tests.

The BMW 1 Series is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed most child restraints could be accommodated in most rear seating positions, though one of the selected booster seats could not be correctly installed in the centre rear seating position.

Pedestrian Summary

The BMW 1 Series has an ‘active’ bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian is struck and actuators lift the bonnet to provide greater clearance to stiff components in the engine bay. The 1 Series was tested with the bonnet in the raised position and GOOD or ADEQUATE results were recorded over most of the bonnet area with some POOR results recorded around the windscreen pillars and the base of the windscreen.

Protection of the pelvis was mixed, with areas of GOOD and POOR performance, while the bumper provided mostly GOOD protection to pedestrians’ legs with some ADEQUATE results been on the outer edges of the bumper.

The AEB system offered GOOD performance in tests of its effectiveness in pedestrian test scenarios under both daylight and night-time conditions. GOOD performance was also seen in cyclist test scenarios with collisions avoided or mitigated at most test speeds.
