Pedestrian Summary

Scored out of 42 points

Adult & child head impacts: 19.94 points

Upper leg impacts: 1.29 points

Lower leg impacts: 6.00 points

AEB (vulnerable road user): 0.00 points

This vehicle scored 27.23 out of 42 points. The Countryman has an 'active' bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian is struck and actuators lift the bonnet to provide greater clearance to stiff components in the engine bay. Accordingly, the car was tested with the bonnet in the raised position and good or adequate results were recorded over most of the bonnet area. The bumper scored maximum points, with good protection of pedestrians' legs. A pedestrian detecting autonomous emergency braking system is available as standard in Australia but it is an option for New Zealand models and was not tested. (Tested by Euro NCAP v8.3)
