HELPING KEEP YOU SAFE AND SOUND.

The real key to driver safety? Avoiding accidents altogether. That's why a MINI's world-famous handling and numerous Active Safety features help you steer clear of hazards. And in the rare chance an accident is unavoidable? Your MINI's predictive brakes, protective frame, airbag system and more are already prepared.

ULTRA-RIGID BODY

An extremely strong frame reduces body torque and lets the suspension 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.

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.

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.

BREAKAWAY ENGINE

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

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.

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.
