5/10
Overall verdict
At a stretch, we can see a point to the 4WD versions, but really though, this is an unnecessary diversion. And not a very pretty one, either.
 

For: 

If we're being kind, you could say it's reasonably practical

Against: 

It's completely pointless, and will soon be dropped from the range

Overview

What is it?

What’s all this about, Mini? The Countryman was a step too far for many, but we could understand why you did it. Building a three door ‘coupe’ version of that ungainly maxi-Mini really IS a leap too far, though. What’s wrong with the regular Mini hatch for those who want a three-door?
