The MINI Cooper has had a long history as a performance vehicle and a style icon. This vehicle broke records in the race trace and gained international recognition for its compact, racing design. However, one aspect of the MINI Cooper that’s often overlooked is it’s incredible safety features. With the newer iterations of the MINI Cooper, its safety features are updated and modernized for today’s standards so anyone can drive this iconic vehicle.
Here at MINI Edmonton, we’re your destination dealership for all things MINI. We carry a wide range of MINI vehicles, each one including all of MINI’s standard safety features for a anxious-free drive. Let us break down for you each safety feature included with each MINI vehicle in our inventory. If you have any more questions about any feature or its effectiveness, let us here at MINI Edmonton know!
Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)
You never have to worry about over-steering or under-steering your vehicle while driving, because the DSC in the MINI Cooper uses its braking systems and engine deceleration to adjust the power output to the wheels. That way, you have better control of your vehicle, so it doesn’t control you.
ABS & 4-wheel disc brakes
Standard on most vehicles, the MINI Cooper is no exception when it comes to its braking system. It incorporates the same Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and 4-wheel Disc Brakes you’ll see in other vehicles, so you know you’ll get the best braking response possible, no matter the reaction time.
Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
Speaking of brakes, the Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) provides one of the best ways of distributing brake force in a vehicle. It does so by transferring the brake force into different wheels, depending on your MINI’s real time load and balance.
Also Standard on every MINI vehicle are its excessively protective airbags. You get two in the front, two for side-impact, two mounted on the ceiling and side curtain, and two knee airbags. All eight work together to protect you and your passengers from potential secondary impacts by monitoring collision severity and adjusting inflation rates to the best specifications possible.
Breakaway engine mounts
The intelligent sensors on each MINI Cooper help keep you safe during a collision. It detects head-on collisions before they happen, allowing the MINI’s engine separate and break free from its mounts. That way, it reduces the potential for the engine to be forced into the cockpit area.
And that was a quick summary of the standard safety features you can expect when driving a MINI Cooper, or any other MINI vehicle you may purchase.
