The passenger compartment of the X3 remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. BMW showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. All critical body regions of the passenger dummy were well protected in this test. In the full-width rigid barrier impact, protection of both the driver and rear passenger was good or adequate, except the chest of the rear dummy, protection of which was rated as marginal, based on chest compression. The X3 scored maximum points in the side barrier test, with good protection of all critical body areas. In the more severe side pole test, dummy readings of rib compression indicated marginal protection, while that of other body areas was good. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The
autonomous emergency braking system scored maximum points in tests of its functionality at the low speeds at which many whiplash injuries are caused, with collisions avoided at all test speeds.

      Should have some airbags in the front drivers seat, and passenger seat that shoot out for passengers in the back.

      the passengers in the back are most likely children... front facing airbags can be very deadly to children under the age of 14
