Mini Countryman Overview

Inside the cabin, the Mini Countryman is equipped with a well-designed, stylish interior typical of the Mini brand. It provides a comfortable, elevated driving position and makes for a good family vehicle with space for five people.

A very practical and versatile car, the Countryman is able to cope with some rugged terrain that other Minis would struggle with. In addition, it received a 5 star Euro NCAP safety rating in 2010.
A little pricier than some of its rivals, the Mini Countryman will repay the buyer with very good residual values.

Background

The Mini Countryman was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 2010 and made available in September that year.

The car is available with a 1.6 litre engine, petrol or diesel, and a 2.0 litre diesel engine. The transmission is 6-speed, automatic or manual. It is a 5-door that is blessed with more interior space than the Clubman and is higher off the ground.

The company announced in 2010 that the Countryman would enter the World Rally Championship. The Mini Countryman WRC was tested in 2011 and ready to race for the 2012 calendar year.

Summary

The Mini Countryman is a crossover 4x4 that sports a stylish exterior with the cabin to match, and serves well as a small family vehicle.
