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

The 2012 MINI Cooper Clubman hasn't been crash tested by either the IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) nor the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), but it does offer most of the modern safety equipment you'd expect.

Standard safety gear on the Clubman includes: anti-torque steer programming, anti-lock brakes, stability control, hill-start assistance, run-flat tires (Cooper S and JCW models), tire-pressure monitoring, electronic brake distribution, a full set of airbags, and more.

Optional safety upgrades include adaptive headlights on Xenon-equipped models, automatic wipers, parking sensors, and, on John Cooper Works models, dynamic stability control.

The very similar MINI Cooper hatchback scores well in crash testing, earning top marks of "good" from the IIHS and five-star rollover ratings from the NHTSA.


Conclusion

Despite the lack of official crash-test scores, the 2012 MINI Clubman shares its basic structure with the well-regarded Cooper hatchback, and offers a strong set of standard safety features.

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.
