Mini Cooper Countryman Overview

The four-door SUV-like Countryman is larger than other Minis but it's still small and fun to drive. The quirky interior has well shaped and comfortable seats. It retains the quick steering and fantastic agility of other Minis. 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, a stiff ride, and a noisy cabin. All-wheel drive is only available on the S version. Typical options can easily drive the price for an all-wheel-drive model beyond $32,000. Crash-test results are impressive. Reliability has been well below average.
