At The Track In Testing
Mini Cooper Countryman 2017 4-door SUV
The redesigned Countryman is now based on the Clubman and offers Cooper and Cooper S versions. Engine choices are a base 1.5-liter turbo three-cylinder and a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder for the S. Front- and all-wheel drives are offered. In June an all-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid version follows, with a promised all-electric range of 24 miles. This SUV-like Countryman is the roomiest Mini ever with a comfortable back seat. Handling remains agile, making it fun to drive. The ride is on the firm side and noise suppression is not befitting a car that typically costs almost $40,000. The optional Mini Driving Assistant system includes forward-collision warning with low-speed automatic emergency braking, pedestrian warning with brake assist, and automatic high beams.
