2012 MINI Cooper Countryman Safety

8.0
Safety
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.

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

Visibility in general is good, with the high seating position making even rearward sightlines acceptable despite the thick roof pillars.
