Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Mini Countryman hatchback?

The most direct rival to the Mini Countryman is the Audi Q2, which is a similarly upmarket small SUV that offers a high-quality interior and a range of impressive engines. Because its ride is more controlled and its interior more upmarket, it’s probably the better buy, although it is a little more staid than the Countryman in the styling department.

If you’re prepared to accept a slightly less plush interior than either of those cars’, though, there are huge savings to be had by choosing a more mainstream model. For the price of a year-old Mini Countryman, for example, you can have a year-old example of Seat’s excellent family SUV, the Ateca, which is both bigger and better to drive.
