Overall verdict on the MINI Countryman

"We know the MINI Countryman is the least mini-like MINI you can buy, but it is difficult not to be taken by its quirky styling, plush interior and rewarding drive. It's easy to see the appeal of a MINI crossover."

MINI Countryman 2020

The MINI Countryman has always split opinion. However, with more than half a million sold since its launch, even the most devoted MINI purist would struggle to deny that it has been anything but a runaway success. 


Given its goldmine status, it’s perhaps understandable that this MINI Countryman looks, drives and feels very much like the original model. As before, the design is retro, yet bulbous, while the interior is family friendly and spacious, with a good-sized boot, room for four and lots of kit as standard.  


MINI has made some changes, with the most notable one being the size. The Countryman is now the biggest production car MINI has ever built. In fact, at 4.3 metres long and 1.6 metres high, it’s roughly the same size as the Nissan Qashqai. The price has grown too - this is not a cheap family car by any stretch of the imagination.


To be fair to the Countryman , it does look and feel very much like a premium car. Admittedly, not everyone will be taken by the stocky design, but climb inside and you’ll find a smart interior with lots of high quality and soft touch materials. Standard equipment levels are good, with all models getting DAB, navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and cruise control. MINI’s Emergency E-call is also included, which means the car will automatically call the emergency services in the event of an accident.
