Expert Quotes:

In brake testing, the Clubman S came to a stop from 60 mph in a short 112 feet.
Edmunds

One bane that hasn't been exorcized, at least in the S, is torque steer. Power out of a corner, and the wheel wiggles in your hand. When the turbo boost kicks in, it wiggles worse.

Left Lane News

Within the limits of traction, the MINI's slip control system worked great.
Autoblog

A hallmark trait of the MINI brand is retro-thruster-like braking prowess in both models.
Jalopnik

Safety equipment abounds in the 2011 MINI Cooper Clubman, with new features for 2011 including anti-torque steer programming, adaptive headlights on Xenon-equipped models, plus standard equipment including six airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability control, and hill-start assistance.

Though the 20 11 MINI Cooper Clubman hasn't yet been rated under the NHTSA's (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) new testing regime, or by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety), 2010 NHTSA safety ratings score the similar Cooper hatch at mostly four-star results, and the IIHS rates the 2011 Cooper hatch as "good" for front offset impacts and "acceptable" in side impacts.

The 2010 MINI Cooper Clubman has some issues with its design and the effect of outward visibility, particularly with the split rear doors, which join right in the middle of the rearward view from the driver's seat, making it tough to back up or see what's behind.



Conclusion

No official crash-test scores are in, but the 2011 MINI Cooper Clubman appears to be a safe small-car choice.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
