Countryman is not mini By Ewan Kennedy, Marque Motoring New Mini Countryman is no longer mini sized. At 4299mm long it’s 199mm longer than the Countryman it succeeds. Width has increased by 33mm to 1822mm; height is greater by 13mm, now 1557mm. The Countryman’s wheelbase is significantly greater, being 75mm up to an impressive 2670mm which makes for significantly more legroom inside. There's also 59mm more elbow room, 50mm added shoulder room, even another 9mm extra headroom. Our road test Countryman came in a deep chocolate brownish orange with ‘racing’ stripes and a black roof. Frontal styling follows that of the latest Mini hatch range, with different design for its grilles from model to model. The wagon’s rear has a wide D-pillar and wide tailgate shaped to give it a large style. The standard ‘Elegant’ Countryman exterior theme can be replaced with an optional ‘Offroad’ style. Or there’s the sporty look with the optional John Cooper Works (JCW) Chili Package. Inside it's the same. The large central dial is a carryover from 58 years ago, though these days the central speedo has been pushed aside to make way for the infotainment screen. While the circular central screen housing is huge the screen itself is tiny. It's clear enough, but using the satellite navigation (which impressively is installed in all models) at a quick glance isn't easy. There's DAB+ digital radio, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming and voice control. You can also use the BMW-style iDrive controller. There's

Customisation has always been the name of the game in the Mini. New Countryman is a class act in this area. an Aux jack, but surprisingly there’s just one USB port. Mini’s range features an interesting variety of drivetrain options: two- or all-wheel drive (AWD). Petrol and diesel engines, all turbocharged. The lowest cost model is the front-wheel-drive Mini Cooper powered by a 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that produces 100kW of power and 220Nm of torque. Mini Cooper S Countryman comes with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder petrol driving the front wheels. It produces 141kW and 280Nm. Automatic transmission is standard in all models, it has six forward ratios in the 1.5-litre petrol and eight in the others.

Model range Cooper: $39,900 Cooper D $43,900 Cooper S: $46,500 Cooper SD: $51,500 Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function is fitted across the range as standard equipment. It works from zero to 140km/h in conjunction with the Mini Driver Assistant Package that includes Forward Collision Warning, City Collision Mitigation, High Beam Assistant and Speed Limit Info. Sheer fun in its styling inside and out almost contradicts the fact that this is a spacious family vehicle.
