Just read this...

I hate to be negative but I am quite disappointed by this from the BMW Group.

It is funny that there is this widely held notion that small cars are a death trap in an accident. It just isn't true. Insurance industry statistics for North America show you are more likely to get injured in an SUV or other type of small truck. These go back to the days of even the original Mini. I don't see anything to worry about.

I think what uke says about overconfidence in SUV drivers and caution/paranoia in small car drivers is very true. Drive down a Canadian highway in heavy snow and guess who you see stuck in the snow bank, on thier side or upside down... Yup, it's the 4x4 SUV or pickup every time.
