The MINI Cooper Countryman S gives the best of both worlds: it is ideal for off-road journeys as well as urban streets.

On the outside, the Countryman may give subtle hints on its temperament. However, the unmistakable personality of MINI Countryman is achieved through the expressive design and typical features of the new MINI family that includes optional LED headlights and daytime running lights, created for the first time by a light line completely surrounding the headlights.

On the inside, the MINI is increased by 20 cm compared to previous models. Leather trim is dotted about and cannot be missed on the steering wheel that fits nimbly into the hand.

Its three-cylinder 1499 cc gasoline engine reaches a power of 100 kW/136 hp with a maximum torque of 220 Nm, while the four-cylinder 1998cc engine reaches 141 kW/192 hp thanks to the maximum torque of 280 Nm. Given the MINI’s low centre of gravity, it corners very well.

Braking brings the MINI to a halt on demand, as it boasts a hydraulic two-circuit brake system with anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, and cornering brake control, dynamic stability control with brake assist, hill start assistant, brake dry function, fading brake support, dynamic traction control and electronic differential lock control. Handbrake impacts mechanically on the rear wheel.
