2012 Top Safety Pick

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

With nearly four years under its belt, the MINI Countryman hasn't been crash tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) has tested the newest Countryman, and given the 2014 model a top rating of "good" in all crash-test categories--though no Top Safety Pick award this year. The IIHS rated the 2013 Countryman a Top Safety Pick.

A high seating position and plenty of glass means visibility is generally very good with the Countryman, despite the thick roof pillars.

The Countryman offers a fair suite of standard safety equipment, including: airbags; anti-lock brakes; stability and traction control; and the mandatory tire pressure monitoring system. All-wheel drive is available (on ALL4 models), as are adaptive headlights and rear parking sensors.

More advanced safety technologies, such as blind-spot monitors are missing from the options list.

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.
