The four-door Countryman is a bigger pseudo-SUV version of the Mini.
The quirky interior has well shaped and comfortable seats, and some models had an intriguing but flimsy sliding storage rail system.
Early versions only sat four, but later versions added a three-person rear seat.
Sharing the quick steering and fantastic agility of other Minis, the Countryman is undeniably fun to drive.
Unfortunately, the familiar Mini downsides carry over to this one, too, including frustrating controls and a choppy ride.
Power comes from a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, either in standard 121-hp form or as a punchy turbocharged S model good for 184 hp.
Only the S version offers all-wheel drive.
