The Mini for the grown up, practical, family man. But if you want fun, you will yearn for your bachelor, Mini Cooper days.
It's practical, looks great, is family-friendly and is perfect if you want a Mini that's not literally a mini. However, if you want the Mini sense of fun, the Countryman isn't it.
You can seat four in comfort. And the four can be dimensionally gifted humans. Ride is well-damped and you won't be struggling for space.
It's got the same 1.6 motor as the Cooper. But all the additional weight ensures you don't get that superlative, smile-on-the-face driving experience.
It may not be a pure Mini, but as a soft-roader for four, the Countryman is rather funky.
Solidly built without the boring German dullness. The materials are nice, and the big instrument dial and the knobs instead of buttons are smartly done.
Not as good as THE Mini. But good enough for a car that looks funky, carries four and has all wheel drive.
All those friends who you had asked to follow in a cab can now fit in. Boot is spacious and folding seats only add to the versatility. The Mini for the family man with cash
Again, an import (read: high sticker price). But once purchased, the small, but punchy engine is rather efficient.
