Earlier this month the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the 2017 MINI Countryman with the second highest possible score: a Top Safety Pick rating.

In order for any vehicle to be eligible to receive this rating it must earn a "Good" score on all crash tests and an "Advanced" or higher rating on front crash prevention tests.

The Countryman, redesigned this year, received many needed enhancements such as more space, better handling, and an upgraded interior. The icing on the cake was the recognition of receiving the IIHS' Top Safety Pick award.

Out of the 20+ safety features you will find in a MINI Countryman, you can expect driver, rear, side, and passenger airbags; 4-wheel ABS; brake assistance; electronic stability control; integrated turn signal mirrors; rollover protection; blind spot monitoring; lane departure warning; and much more.

All variants of the Countryman are available to add on the Active Driving Assistant bundle which provides even more safety features than previously mentioned.

"The new MINI Countryman is not only the best equipped MINI we've ever sold, but it's also the most technologically advanced and most versatile model we've ever offered," said Thomas Felbermair, Vice President MINI of the Americas. "We have seen strong demand for the Countryman since it went on sale back in March and we are thrilled to be able to add the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK award to the growing list of reasons why people head to their local dealer and take a test drive."
