The tested model of MINI Countryman was introduced in Australia during 2011. This 4-star ANCAP rating applies to front-wheel-drive variants with a 1.6 litre diesel engine. Further technical information is being sought about other variants.

The MINI Countryman scored 11.89 out of 16 in the offset crash test (ANCAP requires at least 12.5 for a 5-star rating). The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious leg injury was marginal for the driver and passenger.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the pole test.

Important note: The diesel right-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.

The bumper offered good protection to pedestrians' legs and scored maximum points. The front edge of the bonnet was rated as poor in some areas and marginal in others. The bonnet scored maximum points for the protection it offered to the head of struck child, giving good protection in all areas tested. In those areas where an adult's head might strike, however, the car provided predominantly poor protection.
