Like many cities parking is tough, Countryman still slips in and out of tight slots though its 8-inches longer now. If you're going to be driving a crossover in crowded areas, Countryman is like an urban attack vehicle.

2017 MINI Countryman Cooper S ALL4 Interior
The Countryman seating position is 5-inches higher than the Mini Clubman, so the center of gravity is higher. But it's one of the more entertaining SUVs to drive in a group that includes Audi A3, Mercedes GLA and Lexus NX. The balance of control and coddling is noticeable.
Many says this new all-wheel drive system is quicker to engage, more efficient and smaller taking them less interior space. I'm thinking it works pretty well as I through over a foot of snow.
Interface is new clearly based on BMWs iDrive, not only is the screen touch sensitive there's handwriting ability. This might be a mini, but enough room back for two good-sized adults always. You can choose between extra cargo room and extra legroom that airy and standard. I would expect a power port in the back for charging phones.
The Clubman has dual swing outdoors in the back. I highly prefer the setup of the 2017 MINI Countryman Cooper S ALL4. Cargo space it’s bigger now and cavernous with the square shape, you can keep a big box in it. The 40/20/40 breakdown of the seat allows a lot of flexibility.
Pricing and Release Date
A plug-in hybrid Countryman is scheduled to arrive this spring, is do not have small price tags. Base three cylinder models begin at $27,000. That kind of outlay easily buys the larger rigs that Americans prefer, but if you want it and engaging driving dynamics, a few vehicles have minis big attitude.
Serious drivers will be happy to know that a John Cooper Works version is in the works. At the press briefing Mini put Countryman up against small premium sedan such as Audi A3, Mercedes GLA, Land Rover Discovery sport, Porsche Macan and Lexus NX. If you're looking to cross shop vehicles and need some ideas. Even though the Countryman is anywhere from about 3 to 11 inches shorter than those, it often has better head or legroom.
