Which used Mini Countryman hatchback should I buy?
If you’re on a budget, the basic Mini Countryman One is worth considering, but it doesn’t come with much standard equipment, so it’s worth upgrading to the Cooper model if your money will stretch that far. The sporty Cooper S versions are great fun and highly recommended, but keep in mind that they’re aimed at hot hatch buyers, and their greater power means higher fuel consumption.
If you don’t need the pace of a Cooper S, then, the standard Cooper should be all you ever need. But the problem is, it doesn’t stop there – Minis are famed for their extensive options list, and many owners added options packs, the most popular being the Salt, Pepper and Chili packs, which added increasing amounts of equipment.
