Mini Countryman

The Mini Countryman is a small, prestige SUV that is based on the Mini Cooper hatchback.

Originally introduced to the Australian market in 2011, the Mini Countryman rivals both other prestige suvs - such as the Audi Q3, BMW X1, BMW X2, Jaguar E-Pace, and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class – and high-end versions of the Volkswagen Tiguan, Hyundai Kona, Mazda CX-3, and Peugeot 3008.

Mini offers both efficient turbo-diesel, and punchy turbo-petrol engines for the Countryman; all of which are paired with an eight-speed torque converted automatic.

While most models get front-wheel drive, the top-of-the-range $65,900 Countryman John Cooper Works ALL4 gets all-wheel drive.

Prices for the Countryman start at $41,750 for the Countryman Cooper Stafford Edition.

  • 2014 Mini Countryman reliability

    You’re looking at a relatively new model so the reliability should be fine, and the maintenance costs should be ok if you use a specialist independent mechanic instead of a dealer.

  • Countryman run flat tyres

    What he bought is in effect a used car, not a new one, so it might vary from the specifications of a new car. In this case it seems that for some reason the run-flat tyres have been switched for regular tyres. I might speculate that as it was a demo vehicle the salespeople demonstrating it might have wanted a softer ride to impress potential buyers than the ride it would have if it were on the run-flats. But that’s me being cynical. Your son should go back to the dealer personally and talk to them face-to-face about his issue and request that they either replace the damaged tyre and provide him with a spare, or fit run-flat tyres as he believes it would have had. The alternative is to carry a can of pump-up foam in the car, which would get him out of trouble in the case of a puncture.

Mini Countryman Interior

The Mini Countryman's interior and dashboard demonstrates typically Mini retro touches, but in the most practical guise yet. There's still a few ergonomic quirks that you probably won't pick up in the images, and you'll need to opt for the JCW or Hybrid if you're looking for leather trim.
