The Cooper Countryman’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 55 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the CR‑V LX’s standard 70 series tires. The Cooper Countryman JCW’s optional tires have a lower 40 series profile than the CR‑V Touring’s 60 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Cooper Countryman has standard 17-inch wheels. Smaller 16-inch wheels are standard on the CR‑V LX. The Cooper Countryman JCW’s optional 19-inch wheels are larger than the 18-inch wheels on the CR‑V Touring.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires standard on the Cooper Countryman can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The CR‑V doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

The power windows standard on both the Cooper Countryman and the CR‑V have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the Cooper Countryman is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The CR‑V prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

The Cooper Countryman’s front and rear power windows all open or close fully with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car. The CR‑V’s passenger windows don’t open or close automatically.

If the windows are left down on the Cooper Countryman the driver can raise them all using the key in the outside lock cylinder. On a hot day the driver can lower the windows from outside the vehicle using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the CR‑V can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Cooper Countryman’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The CR‑V LX/SE’s standard fixed intermittent wipers only have one fixed delay setting, so the driver will have to manually switch them between slow and intermittent. The CR‑V EX/EX-L/Touring’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the Cooper Countryman to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The CR‑V doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Cooper Countryman offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The CR‑V doesn’t offer headlight washers.

The Cooper Countryman has a standard automatic headlight on/off feature. When the ignition is on, the headlights automatically turn on at dusk and off after dawn. When the ignition turns off, the headlights turn off after a delay timed to allow you to securely get to your front door. The CR‑V has an automatic headlight on/off feature standard only on the EX/EX-L/Touring.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the Cooper Countryman offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The CR‑V doesn’t offer cornering lights.

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

The Cooper Countryman’s standard outside mirrors include heating elements to clear off the mirrors for better visibility. Honda only offers heated mirrors on the CR‑V Touring.

The Cooper Countryman offers optional automatic dimming rear and side view mirrors which automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The CR‑V offers an automatic rear view mirror, but its side mirrors don’t dim.
