  • Gorgeous interior
  • Fantastic infotainment system
  • Lots of fun to drive
  • Nothing in particular

Summary

The latest Countryman features LED headlights, a new digital instrument panel, and a smartened-up infotainment system. Quality inside the Countryman remains impressive – as you'd expect for a car that demands a premium price for its size. The plug-in hybrid will make sense to many looking to reduce running costs or company car tax.

All the latest Countrymans – the petrols and diesels, as well as this PHEV – now have LED headlights, a new digital instrument panel and a smartened-up infotainment system. In electric-only mode it's not rapid but it'll mooch about town contentedly and climb steadily to over 70mph. Add the 1.5-litre triple into the mix and it's quite sprightly.

  • Comfortable to drive

The MINI Countryman PHEV has been around for three years and has just received a facelift. Customers had complained that the older model's ‘handlebar moustache’ grille made the car look a bit sad. The plug-in hybrid system retains its blend of 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine and electric motor for a combined power output of 217bhp. The 10kWh battery gives an electric-only range of around 30 miles, which is replenished under braking.

  • Lots of fun to drive
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

The 2020 Mini John Cooper Works Countryman is an eye-grabber that doesn't resemble much else on the road. The steering wheel is chunky, and the gauge pod behind it is funky. Mini's in-car tech is mostly carried over from its more expensive BMW siblings to good, but not perfect.

Pros[**]
  • Fantastic infotainment tech
  • Fun two-tone getup
  • Lots of fun to flick switchgear
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

New for 2021, the Mini Countryman Oxford Edition wraps those efforts in a compact SUV shell. The Oxford Edition rides on 18-inch wheels (the base model gets 17s), making the whole shebang look a little less entry-level than it is. The Countryman's shape also means there's ample interior space for adults across both rows.

Pros[**]
  • Fantastic infotainment system
  • Lots of cargo space
  • Comfortable ride
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
