A two-door version of the high-rise Countryman. Like an Evoque Coupe. Only worse.

Good stuff

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

Bad stuff

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


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?

Our choice from the range

What's the 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.
