The 2014 MINI Cooper family hasn't been through crash testing by the safety agencies yet, but the 2013 model earned a mark of "Good" from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and "Acceptable" in the side-impact and roof-strength tests. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) also gave the 2013 model a five-star rollover rating. The 2014 model is structurally identical to the 2013 model.

Standard safety equipment includes six airbags, stability and traction control, anti-lock brakes, hill-start assist and more. Available safety-related options include parking sensors and xenon headlamps.

Conclusion

The 2014 MINI Cooper's safety scores aren't top-notch, but the handling is, and there's a strong set of standard safety equipment, too.

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.
