For most of us, it began as a joke. Mini, a company known for one of the most iconic compact cars of all time coming up with an SUV. Against all odds, the Mini Countryman looks like a success with sales figures proving all the naysayers wrong.
The Countryman is offered with a choice of two or four wheel drive (known as ALL4), and with 1.6L petrol or diesel and 2.0L diesel four cylinder engines. We haven’t had a chance to test it yet, but based on our experiences with other Minis, we are pretty sure it will live up to its name. Here is a very cool commercial from Mini on the Countryman.
