Introduction

What Car? says...

Strictly speaking, ‘countryman’ means someone born, or at least living, in a rural area. Well, take a lingering look at the Mini Countryman. Does it look to you like it’s ever tasted a good ploughmans or smelt the waft of a thickly manured field? No, it doesn’t to us, either, but that’s actually not its remit.

Just check out those sculpted bumpers and the glitzy, Union Flag-style taillight design. If cars wore clothes, the Countryman would be dressed from head to toe in urbanite Nike, not tweedy Barbour. Put simply, if you want a small, go-anywhere off-roader, have a look at our Dacia Duster or Suzuki Jimny reviews instead.

Along with the personalisation options we've touched upon already, the Mini Countryman is available with a good selection of petrol and diesel engines, and there’s also a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) option. With its claimed pure electric range of almost 30 miles and fantastic company car tax breaks it could end up saving you a packet.

Click through to the next page to start reading our detailed 16-point review on the Mini Countryman, where we'll tell you how well Mini's biggest model stacks up against the competition as well as which engines and trims make the most sense.
