Awards & Accolades

AN IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+

The 2016 MINI Hardtop 2 Door has been named Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with optional front crash prevention on models built after November 2015.

Awards & Accolades

ULTRA-RIGID BODY

An extremely strong frame made from second-generation multiphase steel reduces body torque, freeing the suspension to do what it does best - provide super-tight handling. A flex-free frame also reduces squeaks, rattles, vibrations and cabin noise. 

SMART AIRBAGS

Up to 8 front, side-impact, ceiling-mounted, side-curtain and knee airbags monitor collision severity to adjust inflation rates and help protect you and your passengers with as much force as needed. In extreme cases, they’ll stay inflated longer to keep you safe from shattered glass.

    • ACTIVE BRAKES

      Brakes that will automatically ready themselves for an emergency stop when your foot suddenly leaves the gas, dry themselves in wet weather when your wipers are on, and actively work to reduce erratic driving.

    • DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL

      This system can make anyone a better Motorer by automatically applying selective brake pressure or engine power to help your MINI stay in control.

    • HEAD-UP DISPLAY

      Inspired by jet cockpit technology, this retractable display puts essential motoring info – speed, nav instructions, stereo, and other alerts – closer to your line of sight.

    • CORNERING BRAKE CONTROL

      Balances braking pressure throughout all four wheels as you tackle sharp corners – helping you maintain control and forge ahead.

      MORE
    • ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

      An on-board camera helps maintain a consistent distance between you and the car ahead.

      MORE
    • CRASH SENSOR SYSTEM

      In the event of an accident, your MINI is quick to play super hero – automatically unlocking the doors, turning on interior and hazard lights, and cutting the fuel pump if the airbags have been deployed.

    • BREAKAWAY ENGINE

      In the event of a head-on collision, the engine and gearbox are designed  to absorb the impact and break away form their mounts, diverting them from the cockpit in a final act of selfless bravery.

    • ROLLOVER PROTECTION BAR

      Should your safety systems detect a rollover, this frame-mounted safety bar automatically deploys within milliseconds to help keep the car's occupants protected.

    • ENGINE IMMOBILIZER

      Even cold-blooded thieves are somewhat reticent to steal a possession so personal as a MINI. But, just in case, this sophisticated system makes the starter useless without the key.
