2011 MINI Cooper Countryman Safety

8.0
On Safety

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.

The 2011 MINI Countryman promises strong safety scores, but no crash tests have been performed.

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.
