The 2016 Mini Countryman is the British premium brand's take on a crossover SUV. The Countryman combines the taller height, available AWD and cargo utility expected in a crossover SUV with the flair, retro-cool looks and fun driving manners for which Mini is known. Like its siblings, the Countryman is offered in a choice of three power outputs, including the high-performance John Cooper Works (JCW). The Countryman also grants access to the school of cool that are Mini owners, enthusiasts who routinely gather for rallies like Mini Takes the States. With an all-new Countryman around the corner, this current model is showing its age compared to fresher, more advanced rivals like the Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade, Fiat 500X and Subaru XV Crosstrek.
