MINI Countryman

Price $41,490 – $52,690
Fuel consumption 7.5 – 10.4 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 78%(view ratings)
The Countryman is a small crossover and the British brand’s largest model at 4.31 metres long. Can we still call it a MINI? That seems like a stretch, though fun handling is part of the mix. Look for three different output levels (134 hp, 189 hp or 301 hp), but the same 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system across the lineup. The 2024 model will be short-lived as a new generation is ready to take over for 2025.
