The all-new MINI Countryman still satisfies the aesthetics that MINI has been known for however this 2017 Countryman has been re engineered in order to keep up with the BMW Group’s highest standards for vehicle safety and performance.
The all-new 2017 MINI Countryman, the biggest, most adventurous MINI ever, has earned a TOP SAFETY PICK award by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Countryman earns this designation when equipped with the optional front crash prevention system (Driving Assistant), which earned an advanced rating from the independent, nonprofit scientific and educational organization.
The 2017 MINI Countryman earned the designation thanks to good crashworthiness ratings across the board, including the small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. The MINI Countryman also benefits from an optional advanced-rated front crash prevention system, which in IIHS track tests at 12 and 25 mph (19 to 40 km/h), the system mitigated a collision, reducing the impact speed by 7 mph (11 km/h) in both tests.
