Overview

The Mini Cooper Countryman features functionality, with four doors, comfortable room for good-sized people in back, and available all-wheel drive. It's the practical Mini, a more all-purpose vehicle than the other models. Countryman was all new for 2011, so updates for 2012 are few. Option packages have been re-aligned for the 2012 Mini Countryman, and more personalization choices, such as a full-leather dashboard, have been added. The Countryman retains the look and fuel economy that have established Mini as a premium brand among small cars while offering real space for four adults and substantially more cargo volume than the other Minis. The Countryman isn't as responsive as the sportiest Mini models, but it's good fun to drive and more engaging than other vehicles in its class,. It's also more comfortable than other Minis. While the taller, larger Countryman looks a bit different than other Minis, it's based on the same underpinnings and uses the same engines. The base, 121-horsepower four-cylinder is frugal and adequate, even with the optional 6-speed automatic. The upgrade turbocharged version delivers more horsepower and more torque over a broader range, making it more responsive around town and more entertaining. All-wheel drive is available with the turbo. Front-wheel drive is standard. Fuel economy ratings range from an EPA-rated 27/35 mpg City/Highway for the base engine with manual to 24/31 mpg for the turbo with all-wheel drive and automatic. Most Mini Cooper models have four seatbelts, but the Countryman is a realistic four-adult car. It has four traditional side doors, so it's easier to get in or to load kids inside. It delivers 41 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats, with a third of that in the deep trunk with all seats in place. The Countryman will work for families with two small children. The interior treatment is similar to that in other Mini Coopers. Recurring styling themes, unusual controls and stylized instruments highlight the cabin yet it's functional and quite useful. Options, including navigation, premium harman-kardon audio, leather and wheel packages, and park-distance control, are plentiful. They can increase the base price $15,000 or more.
