2011 MINI Cooper Clubman Safety

8.0
Safety

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.

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

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.
