SAFETY.

 

THE CLEVER DRIVING APPROACH.

 

The new MINI is stacked with the best safety technology money can buy. From active safety systems that significantly reduce the risk of something going wrong, to passive systems we hope you’ll never need, but are great to have in case you do.

 
 

ACTIVE SAFETY.

 

Driving Assist Systems.

 

We can all use a little help sometimes. The new MINI comes with a wide range of optional assist systems to give you a helping hand before you even know you need it. The City Collision Mitigation system helps prevent accidents at speeds under 60 km/h. Monitoring traffic ahead with a built-in camera, it gives off a warning signal and applies the brakes when things get too close for comfort. At higher speeds, the Forward Collision Warning system takes over. It preconditions the brakes for instant response, reducing stopping distance. To be on the even safer side, Speed Limit Info and Traffic Sign Memory recognise road signs and let you know when you’re exceeding the speed limit. After all, driving a MINI is about breaking conventions, not the law.

 
 
 

PARKING ASSISTANT.

 

Parking can be a tricky business - even in a MINI. Sizing up the available space, parking tightly to the kerb without nudging the other parked cars. All under the pressure of traffic waiting to pass by. Here's the good news: the optionally available Parking Assistant can do all those things for you. Sit back with a smug look on your face and let your MINI park itself. Just remember to apply the brakes when you're parked perfectly.

 
 

ACTIVE PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION SYSTEM.

 

We care about the safety of those around you as much as we do about yours. The optional Active Pedestrian Protection System pulls the bonnet up to increase deformation room in case the MINI hits a pedestrian, reducing the direct force of the impact. Optical fiber in the bumper registers the collision, after which a sophisticated system of actuators in the hinge system takes the appropriate action in a split second.

 
 

VIDEO ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL.

 

With the all-new Adaptive Dynamic Cruise Control you can kick back and go with the traffic flow, even when the roads are busy or when you’re traveling downhill. A camera detects vehicles driving in front of you up to a distance of 120m. It also recognises static objects and even pedestrians. The system automatically adapts your speed to that of the traffic in front of you. Feel free to take back control at any time by applying the breaks or stepping on the accelerator.

 
 

PASSIVE SAFETY.

 

AIRBAGS.

 

In the event of a crash, the MINI turns into a padded safety cell in a heartbeat. Based on the direction of the impact, the relevant airbags are deployed. There are six in total in the front and back. For side-impact protection and to protect you against flying glass, the new MINI comes with side curtain airbags. Knee airbags put up a lightning quick barrier between your legs and the dashboard. Last but not least, the seat belt tensioners lock you tightly in place, keeping you and your passengers clear from the dashboard and front seats.

 
 

RUN-FLAT TYRES.

 

No more blowouts or dangerous road-side emergency repairs. With the optional run-flat safety tyres you can keep on driving to a place where you can safely change the tyre in case of a puncture.

 
 

High-tech steels.

 

High- and super-high-strength multi-phase steels. Super-high-strength heat shaped steels. If that doesn’t sound like something that could protect you, we don’t know what does. Reducing weight to a minimum, but increasing strength to a maximum these heavy-duty materials are designed for one purpose only: keeping you safe in the event of an accident.

 
 

DIGITAL HIGH-BEAM ASSISTANT.

 

Detect obstacles earlier and extend the life of the high-beam headlights. MINI Digital High-Beam Assistant makes night-time driving effortless, efficient and safe. A camera in the front bumper scans the night for other road users. When it picks up the headlights of oncoming traffic or the rear lights of cars traveling in front, the high beams are automatically switched off. As soon as there's no longer anyone around that can be blinded by your lights, the high-beam lights pop back on.
