The X5 has been awarded extra points that now gives the car the 5 star crashworthiness rating. The X5 now has an intelligent seat belt reminder system fitted for the driver and front seat passenger to buckle up their seat belts. All the doors could be opened normally after the frontal test and intrusion levels were low. The restraint system caused fairly high loads on the driver's chest. The child restraints worked reasonably well but the pedestrian protection was dire.
