What You Will Like

The Countryman incorporates the peppy and perky driving experience--and easy parking and maneuverability--of the MINI Cooper lineup, yet with a more spacious interior and a wider range of capabilities that might be of use to those who head to the outdoors on the weekends.

Fuel economy is quite good for base models, at 27 mpg city, 35 highway. But the stronger, quicker Countryman S and JCW models are the way to go for most shoppers who want to make the most of this car's excellent steering and suspension tuning--which makes a little bit of sacrifice in ride in the name of crisp handling.

What's New For 2016

The only notable change to the MINI Countryman for 2016 is the introduction of the Park Lane special edition. The Park Lane features a 2-toned grey and red exterior along with optional exterior stripes. Inside, the Park Lane gets special badges and unique trim pieces, making the car as striking on the inside as it is on the outside.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / Unlimited Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

We sometimes have a problem keeping our MINI Coopers straight. There is the regular little MINI Cooper that’s 150 inches long, except for the four-door that’s 156 inches long, which is the same length as the Clubman that’s more like a little wagon with its back barn doors, except the real wagon with a liftgate is the Countryman that’s 161 inches long, and right straight we have arrived at the subject of this review.

The Countryman came along for 2011 and got a new grille, LED foglamps, and a bit more chrome for 2015, but otherwise it hasn’t changed. It’s the only MINI Cooper with all-wheel drive, called ALL4, available in each of three models. So it’s not really a wagon, it’s more of a sub-compact crossover utility vehicle, at least the ALL4 models. It’s virtually a genre unto itself. You could cross-shop a Chevy Trax, or even a Honda Fit, but not really.

Countryman comes standard with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine making 121 horsepower; the MINI Cooper S Countryman uses the same engine turbocharged to make 181 horsepower; and the John Cooper Works model wrings 211 horsepower out of that tidy little powerplant. The standard transmission is a fun 6-speed manual, with a 6-speed automatic available.

The manual transmission allows better fuel mileage than the automatic, an unusual thing nowadays that usually means the automatic isn’t as efficient as it could be. The base Countryman gets an EPA-rated 27/32/29 mpg City/Highway/Combined, while the MINI Cooper S with all-wheel drive gets 23/30/26 mpg. Could be better. Not only that, Premium fuel is required.

MINI Countryman earns a Top Safety Pick rating from the IIHS, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, including the best score in the new small-overlap front collision. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn’t tested the Countryman, because relatively few are sold.


The MINI Cooper base model in front-wheel drive goes for $22,750, while the much faster MINI Cooper S jumps the price up to $26,100. With ALL4 all-wheel drive, that S model costs $27,850. Meanwhile, the one you want but don’t want to pay for, the John Cooper Works ALL4 model, goes for $35,550.

The option and trim choices for the Countryman go on and on, with many tech and luxury features as well, so the price will climb. For 2016, the Countryman Park Lane is a special edition package in gray metallic with a red roof, and costing $2000 or $2500 depending on the model.


Countryman stands apart from the other MINI Coopers because it’s clearly a wagon.

The short hood and nose, with its wide grille with horizontal slats and big round headlamps, is fairly aggressive for a car so puny, and the flared fenders and 17-inch wheels give it a pugnacious but fun stance. It stands upright, and the flat roof seems to float above it. The taillamps at the corner of the liftgate are consistent with the boxy attitude, big rectangles rounded at the edges.


Like the other MINIs, the cabin is quirky, dominated by big round gauges with a lot of little levers and switches, and oval shapes scattered around the dash and doors. Too much glossy piano black and too many shiny things for us, with information displays that are captive to the statement which seems to be that chaos is fun.

What makes the Countryman way more functional than other MINIs, and puts the utility in crossover utility vehicle, is its 42 cubic feet of cargo space, with the split rear seats folded. Up front the seats are comfortable and in the rear headroom is ample, although knee room is not so ample, which makes it perfect for kids or other people with big heads and little knees. Technically it seats five, but that’s six real small knees.

That 2015 freshening added the available MINI Connected infotainment system that speaks to smartphones and brings internet functions, using apps that run on the display screen and are controlled by a joystick on the center console.

Driving Impressions

A Toyota Prius is faster than the base MINI Cooper Countryman. If you’re at a freeway on-ramp regulated by a light at rush hour, and the guy next to you gets a good start those couple seconds after you, you’ll probably get in his way. Ten seconds is a long time to reach 60 miles per hour from a standing start.

The 3000 pounds isn’t that heavy for a small crossover, but not a lot of power here. The electric power steering gives good feedback, and the brakes good pedal feel.

The MINI Cooper S Countryman, with its turbocharger adding another 60 horsepower and cutting 2.5 seconds off that zero-to-sixty time. Now we’re talking. The John Cooper Works model adds another 30 horsepower, but only cuts about half a second off that acceleration time. So, bang for the buck, it’s the MINI Cooper S model, with the 6-speed manual gearbox. The Sport mode with the 6-speed automatic sharpens the shifts, but it can’t sharpen them enough, because nothing can afford to be lost to quickness.

The ALL4 all-wheel drive system might be capable of going off road, but it’s not meant to make the MINI a rugged crossover, so don’t plan on taking it elk hunting (take the Jeep Renegade, on the Fiat 500 underpinnings). ALL4 just improves traction and safety on gravel roads or in snow or rain. The traction is divided 50-50 front-rear on dry roads, and, using an electronic limited-slip differential, moves up to 100 percent to the rear as the front wheels slip.


The MINI Cooper Countryman offers 42 cubic feet of cargo space in 161 inches. There are other vehicles you could choose, but it’s unique, so the competition is among the three models. Given that, the MINI Cooper S with 6-speed manual transmission offers the best value.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
