    You make the call, which car, is safer.

    I couldn’t figure out that Honda Accord title too. Strange.

    The Mini is rated as one of IIHS's Top Safety Choice awarded cars for those with the optional avoidance system, 2016 and later. The 500 crash was prior to the 2012 release and the body didn't change significantly. Mini crash ratings 2014 and up have all ratings as "G"ood. (Excluding Marginal on child restraints.) The 500 has always had a Poor rating on partial overlap testing, with Good on on other crash ratings. Small overlap was Poor for foot injury, Marginal for thigh.

    Apples to apples, the roof and side impact of the 2008 to 2013 Mini was Acceptable, to Fiat's Good rating. This early Mini's roof would collapse at half the pressure of the Fiat. Current Mini's are safer than those a decade ago.

    I thought the 500 had a 5 star rating the first year or so until the small overlap test came out.

    IIHS does the small overlap crash test. NHTSA has the 5 star crash rating system. A car that earns one star has a 40% chance of injury, 5 stars is less than 10% chance. The 2018 500 earns 4 stars for roll and frontal impact, 5 stars for side impact.

    The MINI Hardtop is safer, by a healthy amount, mainly because of it's optional crash avoidance systems. IIRC, IIHS had to re-write the safety standards because the MINI Hardtop was too safe for their system.

    If you actually put down the damned phone and keep your eyes on the road, "crash avoidance systems" aren't that necessary, and won't make the car any safer. But I guess if you want to be able to drive blindfolded, they're useful.

    Yeah, it's total BS to be conflating these two things. The avoidance system has nothing at all to do with the safety of the vehicle once it gets in a crash. A 1920 Model T is perfectly safe at 80mph as long as you don't hit anything.

    In the 1950’s, drivers were talking on Walkie-talkies.





    A model T crashed at a 20 mph..... a rope for a seat belt. Tin can and a string communication.
