Any Mini Countryman review you’ll read – this one included – will make a reference to the Countryman not being so Mini. It’s an easy joke to make, but the British brand has really embraced the supersized look. So, the Countryman offers all the benefits of the chic, retro Mini hatchback but with enough space and practicality for everyday family life. 

The second-generation model has a bigger body, a plusher interior and more standard kit, meaning it now takes on SUVs such as the Mercedes-Benz GLA, Audi Q2 and Seat Ateca. There’s even the option of a plug-in hybrid.

Over the next few pages, we’ll let you know how it drives, what it’s like inside and what it’ll cost you to buy and run.

And if the Countryman indeed appeals, head over to our new car deals and see what kind of saving What Car? can get you.
