Sonar backup sensors with audible alerts and a graphical display on the dashboard are optional.

With a full complement of safety gear, the MINI Cooper Countryman seems poised for high scores in both the federal and the insurance-industry crash tests to come.

The Countryman's standard safety equipment includes dual front, side and curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control; and tire pressure monitors. Rear parking sensors are available, but a rearview camera is not--and neither are fancy-tech frills like lane departure warnings, blind-spot monitors and adaptive cruise control.

Adaptive headlights can be ordered, though, and so can xenon headlamps, both for better visibility. The Countryman's high driving perch makes urban shuttling a snap already, though, and even to the rear corners, the visibility is quite good for a vehicle with thick rear pillars.

As of yet, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has crash-tested the Countryman. We'll update this information when results are published.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
