Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Munich. As the largest model in the history of the brand, the new #mini #countryman offers enthralling spaciousness and driving properties combined with maximum flexibility. Now it also stands out with regard to #safety after receiving top marks in this area. The premium compact model achieved the top 5-star rating in the Euro NCAP crash test. The stringent testing procedure established that the spacious #mini all-rounder, also designed for being taken off the beaten track, provides an outstanding level of protection on all seats in every situation.

The crash tests conducted by the independent Euro NCAP #safety testing institute (New Car Assessment Programme) are a benchmark with regard to accident #safety, are recognised Europe-wide and are stepped up permanently. The testers analyse the car’s crash behaviour in different impact scenarios in order to assess how stable the passenger cell is, how effective the restraint systems are and what forces are exerted on the occupants. In addition the Euro NCAP testing procedure also takes active #safety technology and pedestrian protection into account.
