SAFETY.

 

YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL.

 
 

Your new 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.

 
 
 

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 new 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.

 

PROTECTION.

 

High-quality safety features equip the new MINI Countryman to combat the dangers of the road.

 
 

BRILLIANT LIGHTS.

 

Optimum light on straights and bends alike – thanks to the optional adaptive bi-xenon headlights, which automatically adjust to the direction of the road.

 
 

STRONG TYRES.

 

A new MINI Countryman never has that deflated feeling thanks to 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.

 
 

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 BODY.

 

Front, back and sides, the rigid body protects the precious cargo within. High-strength, hot-formed steel adds extra safety against side-on collisions, a hybrid steel-plastic front panel adds strength around the engine and wheel arches, and structural measures in the front roof section ensure maximum safety for occupants in the case of rollover.

In case of a frontal collision a steering column with integrated crash deformation element allows the steering wheel to move forwards towards the instrument panel up to a maximum of 80 mm.

This safety feature in combination with the seat belt and frontal airbag reduces the risk of injury to the driver’s chest.

 
 
 

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.
