By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

The five-seat Countryman serves as Mini's four-door entry in the small-crossover segment. Mini also offers a two-door version in the Paceman. As a crossover SUV, the Countryman has a taller stance than regular Mini cars and offers all-wheel drive.
All models use a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, and S and John Cooper Works versions are turbocharged. The Countryman competes against small SUVs like the BMW X1 and Buick Encore.
