While I hope to never use the safety built into the 328 it is good to know that it is there. Safety was one of my deciding factors.
Looks like you had the two confused. The Infiniti is actually rated higher in the small overlap test. Both would result in driver injury though.....


Infiniti G:Acceptable

Small overlap front test results
2007-13 models
Technical measurements (driver-side occupant compartment intrusion and driver injury) for midsize luxury/near luxury cars

BMW 3 Series: Marginal
