For a MINI Cooper with a little more oomph and even a touch of SUV power, the 2014 MINI Cooper Countryman is probably just what you’re looking for. When it comes to the safety of this vehicle, you’ll be quite pleased with the results and feel good knowing that MINI Cooper is keeping drivers at the front of their sights, right where they should be.
While the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) doesn’t have any ratings listed for the Mini Cooper Countryman, it’s likely that the results would echo what the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has found and also are shown on U.S. News and World Report. Their various tests not only include what you will see below, but there are different tests within each of these, which add up to an overall score. The following results came out as:
- Moderate Overlap Front Test Results – Good
- Small Overlap Front Test Results – Not Rated
- Side Impact Test Results – Good
- Rear Crash Protection Results – Good
- Roof Strength Test Results – Good
Good is the highest rating that a car can receive from the IIHS, which puts the 2014 MINI Cooper Countryman right at the top with a handful of other cars. Take the small overlap front test results out of the equation (and that is a test that not all cars end up subjected to), and the Countryman has a perfect score.
Not only that, but the 2014 Countryman also has a number of safety features that keep both drivers and passengers safe in the event of a collision. Some are what you would expect in a vehicle these days, such as anti-lock brakes and various airbags throughout the car for drivers and passengers, but you’ll also find other features, such as electronic stability control, traction control, brake assist, and more.
