2012 Top Safety Pick

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

Now in its third year on sale, the MINI Countryman still hasn't been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

However, the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety has performed tests on the crossover, and last year it called the Countryman a Top Safety Pick. Scores haven't been updated yet for the 2013 model year, but we expect the results to carry over, in the absence of major structural changes.

The Countryman earned that top ranking by virtue of its full suite of standard safety equipment. Each one comes with the required airbags; anti-lock brakes; stability and traction control; and tire-pressure monitoring system.

All-wheel drive is an option, and adaptive headlights and rear parking sensors are available--but the Countryman lacks some other advanced safety options like a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control.

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

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.
