2016 Mini Cooper IIHS Side Crash Test

The 2016 Mini Cooper has just achieved a top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Mini just recently made enhancements to the vehicle’s side curtain air bags to much better safeguard rear-seat travelers. For 2016, the Mini made “good” scores in all 5 crash tests, along with an “Advanced” score in front crash avoidance thanks to optional innovation consisting of forward crash caution and car brake. The automobile had the ability to prevent a crash in 3 from 5 runs while driving at 12 miles per hour, and decreased to 1-3 miles per hour in the other 2 scenarios. While taking a trip at 25 miles per hour, the Mini Cooper’s front crash avoidance innovation slowed its effect speed by approximately 7 miles per hour.

In 2015, the Mini Cooper had not been ranked in the side crash evaluation. Soon after it was revamped for the 2014 vehicle year, the minicar failed a side crash test performed by the federal government, leading to a recall. That pressed back strategies by the IIHS to run side crash tests. The design made “good” ratings in the firm’s other 4 crash classifications, however had not been able to receive a TSP award.

The TSP+ score uses to two-door Hardtop designs developed after November 2015. To name a few cars that IIHS categorizes as minicars, the Scion iA is the just other to make the firm’s greatest award for the 2016 model year.
