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



As an IIHS  (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) Top Safety Pick, the 2012 MINI Cooper Countryman should satisfy even the strictest driver's requirements--despite the lack of NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) testing.

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.

Conclusion

As a 2012 IIHS Top Safety Pick, the 2012 MINI Countryman is a comforting companion for the daily commute.

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.
