2009 BMW 5-Series IIHS Side Impact Crash Test Picture
Beginning with 2008 models built after May 2007, modifications were made to the side tubular head protection airbags to improve occupant protection in side-impact crashes (note: information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on or near the driver door). Door trim changes were also made beginning with 2008 model year production. The tested car was manufactured after the modifications had been made.

Measures taken from the dummy indicate that rib fractures and/or internal organ injuries would be likely in a crash of this severity. A fracture of the pelvis would also be possible.
