Mini Countryman: driven
Posted: 20 May 2010
Entry-level front-wheel-drive-only cars will start from £16,000, while the Cooper S here is going to sting you for £22,030 with the ALL4 option. And that's before you've specced it up, a notorious financial black hole for Mini owners. So very much a lifestyle choice this, not simply a practical semi-urban driving solution, but a choice we're not going to dissuade you from making....
