Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the all-new 2012 BMW 3

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.
