The Mini Countryman offers a great combination of space, style and desirability, with just enough on-road fun. But there are still alternatives out there that offer a more premium feel, such as the Audi Q2, or an overall more composed ride, such as the Seat Ateca.get the best price
Trim: Cooper S Classic
This is the cheapest version of the sporty Cooper S, although you still get a fair amount of kit including 16in alloy wheels, LED front and rear lights, auto lights and wipers, a 6.5in infotainment controlled by a rotary dial, Bluetooth, a DAB radio, sports seats, and a sports multi-function steering wheel trimmed in leather. Add an option pack or two, and it’s all you need.
With 189bhp, the Cooper S feels brisk without being outright fast. Under normal use, it’s very flexible and sounds quite sporty. The penalty is emissions and fuel economy that are on the high side.
