This is also the case for all USA-bound MINIs built after 01/01/2005 (I'm not sure about all of the other countries). The new MINIs now have advanced airbags that automatically switch themselves off if there is not enough weight on the passenger seat. I believe that the weight of the front seat occupant also determines the force at which the airbags deploy as well. You can read more about it here:
I don't understand? I thought the dangers was having an airbag deploy into someone who is too short and snapping back their head? What has that got to do with wieght?

What happens if you have a little "tub of lard" child? (Not that I am suggesting that the Americans have a child wieght problem!)
