BMW 330e reliability & safety
There's not yet any reliability or an independently assessed crash-safety score for the latest BMW 3 Series, but we wouldn't have any major concerns in either area: the 330e should be a dependable and safe choice.
BMW 330e reliability & problems
As a new model to the market, the latest BMW 330e doesn't yet have any long-term reliability data we can drawn on. The previous version also didn't appear in our sister publication Auto Express' 2019 'Driver Power' ownership satisfaction survey.
The latest generation of BMW 3 Series hasn't yet received its independent Euro NCAP crash-test score, but anything less than the full five stars would be highly unusual.
The 330e comes with a suite of passive and active safety equipment: the standard 'Active Guard Plus' pack bundles together automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning and speed-limit assistance. You also get front and rear parking sensors, as well as a reversing camera.
An optional 'Driving Assistant Professional' pack is also available, but only on the range-topping 330e M Sport. This includes active cruise control, cross-traffic warnings and lane-keeping assistance functions.
