The NHTSA has not yet conducted a review of the Mini Cooper Countryman, but the IIHS has. It awarded the British SUV a top score of Good in four different crash tests, though it gave only a medium rating for the standard crash-prevention systems.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Once again, the Mini proves to be rather stingy at the price. The traditional safety equipment includes eight airbags, ABS, traction and stability control, and a rearview camera. All models also get rear parking sensors, dynamic cruise control with braking, automatic emergency braking, forward collision avoidance, and lane departure warning. You get a parking assistant with the Iconic sub-trim, but you have to pay extra for things like adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot assist or rear cross-traffic alert are nowhere to be seen.

The Countryman has been subjected to a J.D. Power Ownership Survey scoring an overall of 85 out of a possible 100 points. Though there have been no recalls in the last couple oo years, the 2021 model was recalled twice. In the first case, the PHEV was recalled for debris in the hybrid battery that could lead to a fire risk. In another case, there was an issue with a malfunctioning passenger seat belt.
Minis are covered by a four-year/50,000-mile limited and powertrain warranty, including a three-year/36,000-mile maintenance plan and 12 years of cover for rust perforation.
