The all-new MINI Countryman.
Exterior of the all-new MINI Countryman goes even further in versatility, agility and
premium character. Its powerful proportions lend a particularly distinctive presence that
combine iconic MINI design language with enhanced functionality. Precise contours on
the surface underline the cars athletic shape and vertical orientation. Contrasting roof,
upright rear lights, hexagonal radiator grille and large headlamps have undergone
revolutionary development. The roof-rails in satin-finished aluminium are combined with
silver-coloured side sill tops, thereby lending greater visual emphasis to the height of the
car. The distinctive, slightly asymmetrically rounded contour of the LED headlamp
together with the radiator grille produces a distinctive front view.
The all-new MINI Countryman is the roomiest and the most spacious MINI yet, extending
20 centimetres longer and 3 centimetres wider than its predecessor. This increased space
allows five adults to sit comfortably with ample luggage space, making the all-new MINI
Countryman a perfect companion for long journeys.
The interior blends modern aesthetics and refined craftsmanship with practical
functionality. The typical MINI cockpit impresses with its clear horizontal structure,
stretched lines and generously sized surfaces. The iconic circular central instrument panel
is surrounded by an LED ring offering a brilliant colour display in 6.5-inch or 8.8-inch touchscreen. The intuitive use is complemented by the controller on the middle console for
easy operation of multimedia, phone and car functions.
The electric seat adjustment with memory function now offers enhanced head and
shoulder space for both the driver and front passenger. The three full-fledged seats at the
rear make for ample and comfortable seating for rear passengers.
Using the cargo function, boot capacity can be increased from 450 litres to 1,309 litres by
folding down the rear backrest with its 40:20:40 split. Park your all-new MINI Countryman
at a scenic space and enjoy the view with the unique Picnic Bench that folds out of the
luggage compartment to provide seating space for two while protecting your clothing with
a fender dirt protection flap. Automatic Tailgate combined with Comfort Access System
allows the boot to be opened and closed just by waving your foot under the rear fender.
The MINI Excitement Pack features LED interior and ambient lighting which illuminates
the cockpit with a choice of selectable colours as well as projection of the MINI logo from
the exterior mirror on the driver’s side when opening and closing the car door.
