The new MINI Cooper S Countryman

MINI Asia and British United Automobiles Inc. jointly announced the availability of the new MINI Countryman, the biggest and most versatile member of the MINI model family.

Distinctive proportions

Thanks to its unmistakable proportions, the new MINI Countryman is instantly recognizable as the brand’s largest model. The three-part structure of the vehicle body that is typical of MINI is interpreted in a particularly striking way by the model-specific roofline. The car’s upright stature and increased ground clearance are suggestive of generous interior space, robust character, and inspiring driving characteristics – both on-road and off-road. The MINI ALL4 exterior look and standard-fit roof rails further underline the versatility of the car. 

The new structure of the bumper covering, now entirely in body finish, ensures a particularly clear-cut and high-quality appearance. The redesigned radiator grille has hexagonal contours that are typical of MINI and is surrounded by a slim, one-piece chrome frame. The radiator grille of the new MINI Cooper S Countryman is characterized by a hexagonal grid pattern with a red “S” and a single chrome strut.

Distinctive LED headlights

The latest version of the LED headlights features a particularly high-quality design that emphasizes the technology used. The distinctive, slightly asymmetrically rounded contours of the headlights are accentuated by a continuous band of light that takes on the function of both daytime driving light and turn indicator. The turning light included in the functional range of the LED headlights provides intensive illumination of the side areas of the road when changing direction. The standard trim of the new MINI Countryman also includes LED fog lights, with a light band in the upper semicircle of each fog light serving as a parking light.

Redesigned rear apron and LED lights in Union Jack design

With its redesigned bumper trim, the rear apron also contributes to the particularly powerful and contemporary look of the new MINI Countryman. The upright rear lights with chrome frame provide an exclusive, unmistakable accentuation that evokes the origins of the British brand. All lighting functions now feature high-quality LED technology as standard, while the graphic structure of the light source traces the pattern of the Union Jack. With its striking lines, the flag motif provides a distinctive form of identification – both during the day and in terms of night design.

New finishes

The range of body finishes opens new possibilities for an individual look, including the newly added colors: White Silver Metallic and Sage Green Metallic. The roof and mirror caps of this new MINI Countryman are finished in black in counterpoint with the body color.

The Piano Black Exterior trim ensures a particularly striking appearance: here, the headlight surrounds, rear lights, radiator grille, and side indicator elements – or side scuttles – are finished in high-gloss black instead of chrome, as are the door handles and the model lettering on the luggage compartment lid. The car is also fitted as standard with 19-inch light-alloy wheels in the design variant Turnstile Spoke 2-tone with run-flat tires.

Additional identification features in high-gloss black are available from the range of Original MINI Accessories, including the MINI logo and the “Cooper S” inscription in Piano Black design. Matching exterior mirror caps and side scuttles with a grey-black flag pattern in Night Jack design are also available for retrofit.

Interior: ample space and even greater scope for an individual style

The new MINI Countryman combines versatile driving characteristics with a versatile interior. Three fully-fledged seats are available at the rear. Alternatively, the second row of seats can also be used to expand transport capacity. By folding down the rear seat with a 40:20:40 split, storage space can be extended from 450 to up to 1,390 liters. Selective customization of the interior oriented towards the customer’s personal style has become even more attractive due to the addition of new options and a further developed product range.

MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology and emission control

The new MINI Countryman is available with the Cooper S petrol engine featuring the latest MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology. This engine has seen extensive further development and provides an output of 192hp. It features a 7-speed Steptronic double-clutch sport transmission for rapid gear changes and increased shifting dynamics.

In addition to further optimization of CO2 levels, other aspects of the emissions performance have been likewise consistently improved by means of the relevant measures – including particulate filters for petrol engines. This means that all model variants of the new MINI Countryman now meet the particularly rigorous Euro 6d emission standard.

The 4-cylinder gasoline engine of the new MINI Cooper S Countryman with MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology includes an exhaust manifold integrated in the cylinder head along with turbocharging. Among other things, this ensu­res highly effective cooling of the exhaust gases and the turbocharging system. At the same time, crankcase cooling can be reduced when demand is low in the partial load range by means of a new split-cooling valve. In addition, gasoline engine direct injection operates at a maximum pressure that has been increased from 200 to 350 bar.

New equipment features

The new MINI Countryman includes front and rear Park Distance Control including Park Assist on all model variants. Also standard are electrically adjustable seats for the front occupants, including a memory function on the driver’s side.

The digital instrument display comes as standard on the new MINI Countryman – the display in Black Panel design behind the steering wheel has a diameter of 5 inches. The range of audio and navigation systems has been restructured: the Connected Navigation Plus, which is also standard on both variants, includes an 8.8-inch color display with touchscreen function located in the central instrument that is typical of the brand. The touch-sensitive bookmark buttons and high-gloss Piano Black surfaces underscore the premium character of the central instrument. In addition to providing a convenient route guidance system, this feature also comprises wireless charging for compatible mobile phones and a second USB socket. Wireless Apple CarPlay is also available on the MINI Countryman.

Individual style for retrofitting: MINI Original Accessories

High-quality retrofit options from the program of MINI Original Accessories enable functionality, convenience, driving fun, and individual style to be adapted even more precisely to personal preferences in the new MINI Countryman. The selection ranges from a roof box, a molded luggage compartment mat, and all-weather floor mats to individual MINI LED door projectors designed for extreme driving fun.
