New 2017 Countryman - largest Mini ever

10 2017 Mini Countryman

Mini has gone supersize with the new Countryman – it’s the biggest model in the brand’s 57-year history.

And useful new features include electric tailgate control with touch-free opening and unique options, including a fold down picnic bench at the rear.

For the first time Mini is offering a plug-in hybrid model - the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4.

Drawing from expertise gleaned from across the BMW Group, this new hybrid features a turbocharged petrol engine and an electric motor, reducing fuel consumption to 134.5 mpg yet also enabling a 0-62 mph time of 6.9 seconds.

The rest of the new Mini Countryman line-up is powered by an all-new range of engines sourced from the latest Mini TwinPower Turbo generation.

With between 136 – 192hp and 220 -400 Nm of torque, the new Countryman can go from 0-62mph in 7.2 seconds, while fuel consumption reaches 64.2 mpg and C02 emissions drop as low as 113g/km.

The new Mini Countryman is available with both manual and Steptronic gearboxes and with front- and all-wheel drive.

Equipment levels have been improved compared to the outgoing model.

Additions to the standard equipment list include satellite navigation, Bluetooth, cruise control, emergency e-call and active guard.

There is broad scope for owners to personalise their new Countryman, with extensive colour and trim options, advanced technology features and a range of option packs that offer carefully selected items with significant cost savings for the customer.

One option is a new 8.8-inch touchscreen display as part of the Mini Navigation System XL, offering touchscreen multimedia and navigation control for the first time in a Mini.

The Countryman is available to order with prices starting at £22,465 for the Cooper Countryman.

First UK deliveries will be in February. Prices for the plug-in hybrid model will be announced later.
