2014 MINI Cooper Countryman Safety

8.0
Safety

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.

Not yet crash-tested, the 2014 Countryman offers good standard safety equipment and a strong safety record.

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.
