Euro NCAP recently released the crash test ratings for the new BMW 5 Series. The new 5 showed good all around performance in the tests and scored a five-star safety rating.

Launched late last year, the seventh-generation BMW 5 Series continues its successful track record in Euro NCAP's Executive Car segment. The car showed good all-round performance in crash protection and avoidance tests thanks to its new platform, body and updated safety features. Track tests demonstrated that the autonomous braking system can effectively assist the driver in avoiding or mitigating critical rear-end crashes with other cars and pedestrians. With an 81 percent score, the 5-series particularly impressed in pedestrian safety through its standard-fit "Person Warning" system and active bonnet.
