3 Series Safety Awards
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the 2012 BMW 3 Series Sedan a "Top Safety Pick," continuing the company's long-standing commitment to offering class-leading safety with each new model. In order to earn "Top Safety Pick," a car must receive a rating of "good," the Institute's highest rating, in all of four
tests – 40 mph frontal offset impact, side impact, rear impact protection/head restraint and rollover protection – and must be equipped with an electronic stability control system like BMW's Dynamic Stability Control.
