Facts, Features & Specs
The MINI Countryman comes armed and ready with 7 total front and side airbags: 2 front, 2 side-impacts in each front seat, 2 ceiling mounted side curtains and 1 additional knee airbag on the passenger side. With safety sensors obsessively monitoring driver and front passenger position, seatbelt use and impact severity, this sophisticated system will deploy each airbag at the safest, most optimal rate. And because the side-impact airbags are in the seat (rather than the door), they move with you and will open in exactly the right spot - no matter where your seat is.
The real innovation, though, are our side-curtain airbags. Set in the middle of the roof area on both sides, they stay inflated longer than conventional airbags, helping to prevent head or neck injuries that can commonly occur in multiple-impact collisions, while safeguarding you from flying glass.
