This Sports Activity Vehicle is the largest and roomiest of the MINI models. The Countryman seats five while still providing cargo space. Its overall design is bold and is typically considered ideal for adventures. Its iconic, contrasting roof and mirrors is an artistic flair that sets it apart.
The Countryman's interior offers top-surface finishes and five high-end leather upholstery options, such as Chesterfield Leather with diamond pattern stitching. In fact, WardsAuto, a global leader organization in automotive intelligence, recently deemed it as "the top" interior.
"This vehicle resides in the US markets fastest-growing segment," says Neil Westfall, general sales manager of MINI of St. Louis.
He says the vehicle's versatility makes it wonderful for the "three and a half" seasons in this region, as well as for families and those with active lifestyles.
"It's unique, different and fun, but it's a vehicle that you can live with every day," he adds.
The Countryman also provides an optional picnic cushion seat to place in the back for impromptu tailgates or pulling over to enjoy majestic views. And, with the touchscreen navigation system of the MINI Countryman combined with Apple Carplay, drivers also get the pleasure of a dashing dashboard.
When it comes to small crossovers, Neil says the Countryman is a wonderful and unique value because it is both powered and engineered by BMW.
