BMW X5 2001-06 models mfg. after Jun. 2000FRONTAL OFFSET TEST OVERALL EVALUATION: Good Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right Good Good Good Good Good Good Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight. Test details: The BMW X5 was introduced in the 2000 model year. All 2001-06 X5 models manufactured after June 2000 include structural changes to improve occupant protection in frontal crashes (note: information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on or near the driver door). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has evaluated the crashworthiness of a 2001 X5 with the structural changes in a 40 mph frontal offset crash test into a deformable barrier. Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the B-pillar. Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Head acceleration from the B-pillar hit was low.
