Mini Countryman

(2017 - present)

The Mini Countryman is a medium-sized five-door hatchback/crossover. The current model is the second generation, which went on sale in the UK in 2017. Unlike most of the Mini range, it’s built in Austria rather than Britain.

The Countryman tends to fall somewhere between a mid-size hatchback (like the Ford Focus or) Volkswagen Golf and a similarly-sized SUV/crossover model (like the Nissan Qashqai or Ford Kuga). It’s available in various levels of sportiness, such as Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works. Unlike the previous generation, the current model is available with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

The Mini Countryman has received consistently good reviews from the UK motoring media, although the plug-in hybrid tends to score better. On the other hand, the high-performance John Cooper Works model is not as well rated as the lower-order models.
