Helping the Countryman earn its top marks in IIHS testing is a full suite of standard safety equipment, including: dual front, side, and side-curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes; stability and traction control; and tire-pressure monitoring system. Rear parking sensors are available.
Some high-tech gear you might expect isn't available, such as a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, or adaptive cruise control. On the other hand, adaptive headlights, and xenon bulbs are available for improved night time visibility.
Visibility in general is good, with the high seating position making even rearward sightlines acceptable despite the thick roof pillars.
