The Germans have recently roll-over crash tested 3 small convertibles - the Peugeot 207 CC, Citroen Pluriel and MINI Cabriolet. 5th Gear on Channel 5 mentioned it tonight, and the article (in German) is here:

Kleine Cabrios im Überschlagtest

Sorry for those who can't read German, but the message seems clear - even the MINI is not that great in a roll over. Apparently, pop-up rear head protection is a good idea, so it will be interesting to confirm that this will be part of the R57 specification......

I remember watching a video on youtube that had convertibles being tested in a side on roll over accident... and it didn't look like a pretty sight when the MINI rolled over.... the drivers head hit the road and then the passengers arms was outside the cabin and then got squished... still hasn't changed my mind on a cabrio tho :D
