The second generation MINI got good scores for front and side impact and roll-over testing in the latest National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's ( NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) testing.

In the NCAP side impact testing, the 2008 MINI got a 5-Star rating for front seat occupant side-impact protection. In the same test the MINI received a 4-Star rating for rear seat occupants. In frontal impact testing the MINI received a 4-Star rating for both front seat occupants. Finally, the MINI got a 5-Star rating for rollover safety. All those stars prove that small doesn't have to mean unsafe.
