All Mii models have two front airbags, plus side airbags that extend upwards to cover the same area as curtain ’bags. Airbags that help protect rear-seat passengers are not available. Stability control, Isofix child seat mounting points on the rear seats and a tyre pressure monitoring system are standard.
However, unlike more recent cars including the Kia Picanto, the Mii isn’t available with modern safety kit such as blindspot monitoring, lane assist and automatic emergency braking. So although the Mii achieved the maximum five stars in its 2011 Euro NCAP crash test, if it were retested today the lack of some of those features, which now form part of the test, means it wouldn’t perform nearly so well.
Security experts Thatcham Research awarded the car four out of five stars for resisting being stolen and three out of five for withstanding a break-in.
