The base of this lift, Model# MD-6XP, looks narrow such that there would be significant risk of the car toppling over if bumped.
Is there any safety mechanism to prevent the car from toppling over when the lift is fully raised?

There are no safety mechanisms built into this lift. The manufacturer has tested this lift over and over again and have constructed it with a zero percent chance of car ever toppling off the lift.

There is no mechanism to prevent the lift from tipping side to side, it only has locks to prevent the lift from lowering unexpectedly or a mechanical failure. I have this lift and when fully raised its stable and I feel comfortable working next to the vehicle. If you were doing some very heavy prying on a suspension component you will feel the lift/vehicle move somewhat. You just need to use caution and common sense when working on something and know that you can't overdue some tasks, however I don't think it would ever tip over, it's pretty stable.
