The IIHS recently tested a number of small cars, 12 to be exact. Of all those cars, only the Mini Cooper Countryman got a "good" score in the small front overlap crash test.

To earn a "good" rating, a car must keep the cabin around the occupants largely intact and protect them with a combination of seat belts and air bags, the institute said. When a car's cabin collapses, as it did in the crash tests of the Juke, Leaf, 500L and Mazda5, it can move the seats and air bags out of place, increasing the risk of injuries.
I don't want to have my legs crushed because the cabin collapses when I crash. Guess that means that I should go with the Mini Cooper Countryman instead of one of these other options.
