It rates the E28 as giving about 30% more protection than a Vauxhall Astra (Pontiac Le Mans, I think) which is taken as the bench mark. That's not bad when you consider that the safest car, the Jaguar XJ series, gives 55% more protection.
The E34 made quite a leap forward with about 40% better protection than the Astra.
