Automotive Editor - March 12, 2014

The largest model in the MINI lineup, the Countryman offers four-door convenience, a rear seat for adults, and three times the cargo capacity of the MINI hatchback. Although the Countryman doesn’t quite measure up to small crossovers, its sprightly handling and charming looks make it a standout.

What's New for 2014

All models now come with heated side mirrors and heated windshield washer jets.

Choosing Your MINI Countryman

All models make use of the same 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 121 horsepower in standard form and 181 horsepower with the optional turbocharger. There’s also a special version of the turbo that puts out 211 horsepower. With all variants, you can stick with the standard six-speed manual transmission or opt for a six-speed automatic.

The amount of power you get depends on the trim level:

CarsDirect Tip

With its ample power and available all-wheel drive, the midrange S is the best choice for everyday driving. The base model is on the slow side, and the performance-oriented JCW rides too firmly for most people’s tastes.
