MINI Countryman review

NGC verdict 14.09.2010

It's all in the categorisation, but if you consider a taller body, raised suspension and the ability to switch engine power between front and rear wheels makes this Mini a sports utility vehicle (SUV), then at 129g/km CO2 it's the lowest emission SUV you can buy.

Prices start low enough to pitch the non 4WD Countryman against Ford's Focus, excluding discounts, but Mini says its main rival is Nissan's Qashqai – because of the cabin space and boot capacity, though the Mini is shorter even than the Nissan Juke. All 3,000 Countrymans due this year are already sold and 80% are All 4 versions suggesting people fear another snowy winter.
