All Mii models have two front airbags, plus side airbags that extend upwards to also 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, though, so the Mii has a similar amount of safety kit as many newer city car rivals.
Automatic city emergency braking is a reasonably priced option on all versions apart from I-Tech, which oddly can’t be specified with it.
The Mii achieved the maximum five stars in its Euro NCAP crash test in 2011, with scores of 89% for adult protection, 80% for child protection and 46% for pedestrian protection.
Security experts Thatcham awarded the car four out of five for its resistance to being stolen, and three out of five for its resistance to being broken into.
