No one had ever seen an automobile that fuses the comfort of a compact car with the terrain dexterity of a 4WD, until AMC produced the Eagle in the late 70s. Subsequently, that innovation led to the birth of a class category known as the ‘crossover SUV.’ Fast-forward to 2010, refining and modernizing the concept, MINI, a British automotive marque owned by BMW, launched its model of the crossover SUV called the Mini Cooper Countryman.
The Mini Cooper Countryman is a subcompact luxury crossover SUV, and it’s currently offered in six unique trims of the base Cooper, and the All4, S, S All4, JCW All4, as well as the SE All4. The price of the SUV starts from a low of $29,100 for the base Cooper Countryman, to as much as $41,500 starting price for both the JWC All4 and the SE All4 trims. Here are the features and attributes that get us pumped about the lovely Countryman dynasty.
Potent Engine Options
MINI has provided the Countryman with a variety of powerful engine options in its different trims. One of such engines featured in the SUV is the TwinPower Turbo, 1.5-liter, 3-cylinder engine which powers the All4 drive optioned Mini Cooper Countryman trims.
It gets better with the JCW Countryman All4 with its TwinPower Turbo, 4cylinder engine while the loveliest and most amazing of the powertrains has to be the 1.5-liter TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder engine used with the eDrive Electric Motor in the Hybrid All4 System.
The Mini Cooper Countryman has relatively good and delightful fuel economy and real-world mpg stats. Understandably, the plug-in-hybrid Cooper SE with a combined EPA rating of 73 MPGe is the most fuel-efficient Countryman trim.
