SAFETY.

 

YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL.

 
 

Your MINI Countryman, your bodyguard: various sensors recognise dangers before they actually arise, allowing you to react in good time. In tricky situations, you are supported by the intelligent suspension and braking systems.

 
 

Maximum security on four wheels: in the event of a crash, a wealth of safety equipment provides you with optimum, all-round protection.

 
 
 

ASC+T.

 

Automatic Stability Control + Traction (ASC+T), prevent the front wheels from spinning, guaranteeing ideal starting conditions and plenty of traction.

 
 

ACTIVE SAFETY.

 

YOUR BODYGUARD.

 

The MINI Cooper D Countryman makes sure you'll feel as safe as houses − anywhere, anytime.

 
 

BRAKING SYSTEM.

 

Optimum braking behaviour in any situation is ensured by four disc brakes, an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) as standard and Cornering Brake Control (CBC). Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) manages the balance of the braking force between front and rear axle. Brake Assist speeds up the process, enabling maximum braking pressure and thus minimising the braking distance.

 
 

DSC.

 

Standard-feature Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) prevents unstable driving situations by intervening in the engine management and, if necessary, by applying braking force to individual wheels at the front or rear. DSC also includes Hill Assist.

 
 
 

DTC.

 

Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) lets the driver actively make use of the self-steering properties of the MINI. Electronic Differential Lock Control (EDLC) recognises when the wheel slip is too high on the inside wheel during cornering and applies braking force for optimum handling on bends and different road surfaces.

 
 
 

DYNAMIC BRAKE LIGHT.

 

During normal braking, the brake lights light up across their entire surface – during emergency braking, they start to flash. This allows vehicles behind distinguish between gentle and full-on braking. The automatically activated hazard warning lights then help to defuse the critical situation.

 
 
 
 

PASSIVE SAFETY.

 

MAXIMUM PROTECTION.

 

High-quality safety equipment equips the MINI Countryman to combat the dangers of the road.

 
 

BRILLIANT LIGHTS.

 

Optimum light on straights and bends alike − thanks to the optional bi-xenon headlights which adapt to the direction of the road.

 
 

STRONG TYRES.

 

A MINI Countryman never has that deflated feeling - thanks to optional Runflat Tyres with emergency running properties. The reinforced side walls allow you to drive up to 150 km at maximum of 80 km/h, even with complete tyre pressure loss. Runflat Tyres are optional on MINI Cooper Countryman, MINI Cooper S Countryman and Cooper D Countryman, with all remaining variants fitted as standard.

 
 

FAST AIRBAGS.

 

Driver and passenger airbags protect the head and upper body during a head-on collision. Side and head airbags reduce the risk of injuries to the head, chest and pelvic regions during side-on impact.

 
 
 
 

RIGID CHASSIS BODY.

 

"Complete all-round protection" is the guiding principle for the MINI Countryman chassis construction. The rigid collapsible steering column acts as a protective shield, providing optimum protection in the case of impact from the front, rear and side or when the car rolls over.

 
 
 

FLEXIBLE REAR AXLE.

 

Thanks to the multilink rear axle, each wheel can react independently, meaning that an uneven road surface doesn't affect the entire chassis − and that your driving experience remains as relaxed as ever. Even more safety is provided by the single-link spring-strut front axle and symmetrical, equal-length drive shafts.
