May 7, 2019—BMW has earned a fifth 2019 safety award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, with the latest accolade going to the 2019 3 series 4-door sedan.

The midsize luxury car earns a Top Safety Pick+ award when equipped with specific headlights.

The 3 series, 4-door sedan earns good ratings across the board for crashworthiness and earns a superior rating for its standard and optional front crash prevention systems. The systems avoided collisions in 12 mph and 25 mph IIHS track tests and have a forward collision warning component that meets the criteria set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The midsize luxury car is available with three headlight options that offer a range of performance. The optional curve-adaptive headlights that come with the executive package earn a good rating in IIHS tests. The car's base headlights—static LED projectors—earn a poor rating, conversely.
