Made for the Estate

MINI's headquarters in Germany have announced the fourth model to join the family, opening up a new dimension of MINI's unmistakable character.

As a genuine crossover, the MINI Countryman bridges the gap between the classic concept of the MINI and a modern Sports Activity Vehicle. It is the first model in the MINI range with four doors and a wide-opening rear lid, providing even greater freedom of space for and versatility.

The Countryman promises the same go-kart driving characteristic of MINI whilst having a higher ground clearance, and will be the first to offer an optional MINI ALL4 all-wheel drive. The Countryman will be powered by MINI's range of diesel and petrol engines, including the S model's 1.6 liter twin-scroll turbo engine.
