Countryman, the largest model available in the MINI range, received a number of improvements from the British manufacturer.
MINI Countryman has been a pioneer since the first generation was launched in 2010. The first model with a length of over 4 meters, with 4 doors, large tailgate, 5 seats, and four-wheel drive and with extra ground clearance thrives on asphalt as it does on gravel.
The new MINI Countryman is based on the usual recipe but has received a number of new design elements that set it apart from its predecessor.
The new front is characterized primarily by sharper lines in the bumper and more sporty expression. Both the horizontal and vertical lines are clearly visible. Between the distinctive LED fog lights is a new diffuser, and the headlights also contain new technology. LED headlights with a variety of features are now standard. If desired, the new MINI Countryman can also be supplied with adaptive LED headlights with matrix technology., where the light automatically adapts to different driving situations and oncoming traffic.
The interior has also received its upgrades and new features. The sports steering wheel is now standard in all models. A 5-inch digital onboard instrumentation will be offered as an option, while the infotainment system communicates with passengers via an 8.8-inch touch screen.
Two new engine options are offered for the new MINI Countryman, both with four-wheel drive and automatic transmission as standard. All engines available on the Mini Countryman facelift comply with Euro 6d pollution regulations. Depending on the engine chosen, the new Mini Countryman will be equipped as standard with 16 or 17-inch alloy wheels. Optionally, customers can choose rims up to 19 inches.
The basic model is called the Mini One Countryman and will be equipped with the 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that develops 102 horsepower; managed by a six-speed manual transmission, but customers will also be able to choose a seven-speed automatic transmission and double clutch.
The Mini Cooper S Countryman will be equipped with a 2.0-liter petrol engine. The engine develops 178 horsepower and the SUV can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.5 seconds.
The best-selling model becomes the plug-in hybrid Cooper SE All4. The British-prepared propulsion system consists of a 1.5-liter three-cylinder petrol engine connected directly to the front wheels and a 65 kW electric motor to the rear wheels. Together they constitute the four-wheel hybrid drive with a total engine power of 224 hp and a torque of 385 Nm.
The battery has a capacity of 9.6 kWh. The new Mini Countryman plug-in hybrid has an electric range of up to 52 km (WLTP). 0-100 km / h is done in 6.8 seconds and top speed is reached at 196 km / h.
