Following its introduction in 2011, the 2012 Countryman sees only minor changes, and they are aimed at making the car more user-friendly. Chief among them is a rear bench seat option, which expands occupancy to five passengers. A new Technology package includes a center armrest, Park Distance Control, a harman/kardon sound system and either MINI Connected or MINI Connected with Navigation. Other packages have been reshuffled as well.
Responsive, nimble driving feel; all-wheel drive; excellent fuel economy; more cargo-friendly interior; higher seating position; available tech features and accessories
The 2012 MINI Cooper Countryman is a tall (for a MINI), rugged 4-door model that represents the automaker's venture into crossover vehicles. The Countryman is also the first MINI to offer all-wheel drive and the first model from the brand to offer adaptive headlamps. With four doors, the Countryman also offers a little more passenger versatility than the MINI Cooper models, while the brand's reputation assures they are more nimble, eager-feeling alternatives to other larger crossover vehicles. Its interior is also more versatile and spacious, with textured-grain surfaces and trim details, plus cargo solutions including the customizable Center Rail system that allows for four passengers, or a new rear bench seat that allows for five. With the added value, the Countryman has a starting price that isn't much higher than that of the MINI Cooper.
