Product Overview

The facelifted MINI Countryman introduces a range of new design and technical improvements that make this popular crossover better than ever:
On the outside, there is a redesigned radiator grille up front. LED headlamps and fog lights are now standard equipment. The LED tail lights now feature MINI's unique Union Jack design.
Inside, a new digital cockpit display with 5-inch display becomes available, and sports leather steering wheel is now standard.
The new MINI Countryman is available with three petrol engines and three diesel engines in addition to a plug-in hybrid. Four of them can be combined with ALL4 all-wheel drive system. All these latest-gen engines comply with Euro 6d emission standard.

Reviewers from autocar have found:
Sales of the plug-in are climbing steadily, from 8% in 2017 to a quarter of the model’s UK output so far this year. It has lost a few BHP (now 217bhp, for which you can blame WLTP emissions tuning) but, as a plus, emits less CO2 and has a better official electric-only range: around 30 miles. The Countryman is like one of those celebrity impersonators you can hire for parties, who look the part but lack bona fide personality.
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Sleek styling
  • Decent range
  • No cowl for digital dials
  • Not the most fun to drive

Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
The MINI Countryman joined the MINI range in 2010. It was the brand’s first foray into SUVs, and it was by and large a good inaugural attempt. The first generation sold well all its life, and this Mk2 version continues to be popular. Launched in 2017 and refreshed again in 2020, the Countryman line-up includes a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant as well as petrol.
  • Comes with a range of engines
  • Decent infotainment system
  • Cheap to run

Reviewers from carmagazine have found:
Electric power assisted steering is laid back in normal mode, turning into corners too languidly. Use the driving modes’ toggle in the gearshifter housing to select sport and the steering becomes heavier and turns in more responsively. A full charge takes 3 hours 15 minutes on the mains, or an hour less using a Chargemaster wallbox. Mini claims the PHEV still offers a 310-mile range.
  • Powerful dual-motor
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Good range
  • Lack of fast-charging
  • Alternatives are more fun to drive

Reviewers from cnet have found:
The JCW Countryman's four-pot has a whole bunch of kick, but it's not mated to the most surefooted vehicle in this case. Mini's in-car tech is mostly carried over from its more expensive BMW siblings to good, but not perfect effect. Safety features are also on the limited side.
  • Sleek styling
  • Fun infotainment tech
  • Good fuel economy
  • Lack of in-car tech
  • Not the most fun to drive
