The new avatar of the ‘Big’ Mini comes to India, and is to be manufactured at the BMW Chennai plant, with both petrol and diesel variants, the Countryman S, Countryman S JCW and the Countryman SD. The countryman is Mini’s answer to entry level SUV’s in India. The car hasn’t yet cracked the market and hearts of the Indian crowd. And the company hopes to change this with the new avatar. Deliveries of the Made in India car is set to start by June 2018.
