The MINI Cooper Countryman has proudly represented the MINI brand for years. Debuting as the larger option for MINI drivers, the Countryman has made headlines as a spacious and sporty vehicle. This week, the British Luxury brand unveiled the newly redesigned MINI Cooper Countryman. And it is a thing of beauty.
The Redesigned MINI Cooper Countryman
The 2017 model brings the largest design of a MINI ever. Offering 8 more inches to the previous lengths, the newest Countryman opens endless possibilities. A full 17.6 cubic feet of cargo space enables more room for more fun. The 1.5L turbocharged 3 cylinder engine offers 134 horsepower. Six-speed manual and automatic transmissions come available. The S model comes with a quick 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder. With both 6-speed manual, and 8-speed automatic, the Countryman S brings 189 horsepower to the engine.
The luxury finishes and features of the latest design come standard. A panoramic moonroof and leather appointed seating set a solid mood for the interior. The 6.5 inch display screen features bluetooth connection and backup camera visuals. Rain-sensing wipers and alloy wheels add an extra kick of style.
MINI Cooper Countryman S E ALL4 Plug-in Hybrid
Yeah, you read that right. The 2017 model year welcomes the newest member to the MINI family. The first plug-in hybrid for the brand comes in the form of the S E ALL4. Featuring a lithium-ion battery and an all-wheel driving system. Specs and tech are yet to be announced, but the latest model seems promising from all points.
MINI has proven again that the Countryman is here to stay. With expansions to the line and finer finishes than ever, the Brits are leaving their impact on the American markets.
