MINI Cooper Safety Ratings and Safety Informtation

Is a MINI Cooper safe?

Known for iconic styling and unmatched nimble handling, MINI Cooper has won the hearts of generations of drivers. Matching the emphasis on sporty driving dynamics is the attention to safety found on MINI vehicles. A blend of active and passive safety technologies work in harmony to keep you safe on the road.

MINI Cooper features an ultra-rigid frame made from second-generation multiphase steel. This overall rigidity lowers body torque and provides exceptionally tight handling. Up to 8 front, side-impact, ceiling-mounted, side-curtain and knee airbags line the interior to keep occupants safe and secure in the event of an accident. These airbags monitor collision severity to adjust inflation rates with as much force as needed.

Available active safety features include Dynamic Stability Control, Cornering Brake Control, Adaptive Cruise Control, Heads-Up Display, and active brakes. Behind the scenes, several passive safety features work in tandem to keep drivers and passengers safe. These include a crash sensor system, breakaway engine design, and rollover protection bar.
