Mini Cooper Countryman Overview

The four-door SUV-like Countryman is larger than other Minis but still small and fun to drive. The quirky interior has well-shaped, comfortable seats. It's based on the previous-generation Cooper and retain its quick steering and fantastic agility, along with the stiff ride and noisy cabin. A more forgiving suspension is standard, and the sport suspension we tested is now optional. The S has a punchy powertrain, and it posted a very good 26-mpg overall in our tests. Familiar Mini downsides carry over, including frustrating controls and a noisy cabin. All-wheel drive is only available on the S version. Reliability has been far below average.
