In Edmunds braking, various Mini Cooper S models with 17-inch wheels stopped from 60 mph between 112 and 115 feet -- excellent results.

With six airbags, anti-lock brakes, and stability control standard across the lineup, the Cooper is a safe small car.

Though the NHTSA and IIHS haven't yet tested the 2011 MINI Cooper, the 2010 results from the NHTSA scored five-star rollover ratings.

The Convertible hasn't been tested, but offers standard pop-up roll bars and automatic airbag deployment in the event of a rollover. Hill-start assist helps get things going on steep stretches, minimizing the chance of rolling into the car behind.

Available safety options inclue Xenon headlamps, parking sensors, and run-flat tires (standard on the Cooper S).

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.
