Safety

Both the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 and the Model X have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available crash mitigating brakes and front parking sensors.

Warranty

The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4’s corrosion warranty is 8 years and unlimited miles longer than the Model X’s (12/unlimited vs. 4/50,000).

MINI pays for scheduled maintenance on the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 for 3 years and 36,000 miles. MINI will pay for oil changes, lubrication and any other required maintenance. Tesla doesn’t pay scheduled maintenance for the Model X.

There are almost 2 times as many MINI dealers as there are Tesla dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4’s warranty.

Fuel Economy and Range

The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4’s maximum EPA estimated driving range on a full tank of fuel and a full charge is 278 miles, after which it can be refueled at any gas station in minutes. The Model X’s range is only 237 to 295 miles, after which the minimum recharge time is 30 minutes for only a 54% charge at a specially configured quick charge station not available in most areas. A full recharge at a conventional charging station can take up to 82 hours and 53 minutes.

Brakes and Stopping

In an emergency stopping situation, many drivers don’t press the brakes with enough force to stop the vehicle in the shortest distance. The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 has a standard brake assist system to detect emergency braking situations (by how hard and how quickly the brake pedal is pressed) and then automatically apply maximum braking immediately in order to help prevent a collision. The Model X doesn’t offer a brake assist feature.

Suspension and Handling

The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The Model X’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

For better maneuverability, the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4’s turning circle is 3.3 feet tighter than the Model X’s (37.4 feet vs. 40.7 feet).

Chassis

The MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 1300 to 1450 pounds less than the Tesla Model X.

The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 is 2 feet, 4.5 inches shorter than the Model X, making the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 is 9.8 inches narrower than the Model X, making the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 easier to handle and maneuver in traffic.

Passenger Space

Flexibility is maximized at the game, campground or a drive-in theatre in the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 when its optional tailgating rear seats are deployed, allowing people to sit facing out of the liftgate. (Do not use while vehicle is in motion.) The Model X doesn’t offer tailgating seats.

Cargo Capacity

The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4’s standard rear seats fold to accommodate long and bulky cargo. The Model X 6-Passenger doesn’t offer folding rear seats.

To make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, just waving your foot can open the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4’s liftgate, leaving your hands completely free. The Model X doesn’t offer a hands-free gesture to open its liftgate, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.

Servicing Ease

A Service Interval Indicator is standard on the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 to save the owner time and money by calculating maintenance intervals for oil changes and brake pad replacement, vehicle inspection based on actual driving conditions. This takes the guesswork out of keeping your vehicle in top condition and helps it last longer. Tesla doesn’t offer a maintenance reminder on the Model X.

Ergonomics

The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 offers an optional heads-up display that projects speed and other key instrumentation readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The Model X doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

If the windows are left open on the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 the driver can close them all at the outside door handle. On a hot day the driver can lower the windows at the outside door handle or from a distance using the keyless remote. The driver of the Model X can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. Heated windshield washer nozzles cost extra on the Model X.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 has a standard rear wiper. The Model X doesn’t offer a rear wiper.

The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4’s standard side window demisters help clear frost or condensation from the side windows in the winter. The Model X doesn’t even offer side window demisters, so the driver may have to wipe the windows from the outside to gain side vision.

To better shield the driver’s vision, the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 has a standard dual-element sun visor that can block glare from two directions simultaneously. The Model X doesn’t offer a secondary sun visor.

To shield the driver’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side window, the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 has a standard extendable sun visor. The Model X doesn’t offer extendable visors.

The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 offers an optional center folding armrest for the rear passengers. A center armrest helps make rear passengers more comfortable. The Model X doesn’t offer a middle row seat center armrest.
