An adventurous new look, crafted to personal taste
The second-generation MINI Countryman offers a bold appearance that retains typical MINI design DNA while embracing its position as the brand’s premier Sports Activity Vehicle.
Satin silver side mouldings and attention-grabbing roof rails express the Countryman’s multi-faceted capabilities.

Front styling follows that of the current-generation MINI Hatch range with a redesigned grille and front apertures, while at the rear a wider ‘Aeroedge’ D-pillar and redesigned tailgate further modernise the aesthetic.
An optional revised LED headlight design is further enhanced by a fresh set of daytime running lights.

Countryman owners can also specify specific exterior appearance sets that best reflect their lifestyle. The standard ‘Elegant’ exterior theme can be altered to an ‘Offroad’ style via the optional MINI All4 off-road styling package. A sports-led aesthetic can be delivered via the optional John Cooper Works Chili Package.

Sophisticated new interior offers an abundance of space and luxury

Generous proportions are a MINI Countryman highlight. With 59mm additional elbow room, 50mm more shoulder room, 9mm more headroom and an impressive 50mm increase in rear legroom, the new-generation Countryman is more spacious than ever.
The full five seats are easily capable of transporting five adults in comfort and the Countryman’s increased dimensions ensure the entry/exit points are easily accessed.
Further enhancing the SAV ambience is the higher-set driving position. Set a substantial 9cm higher than in the MINI Clubman, the Countryman’s visibility is commanding.

Second-row passengers benefit from unprecedented adjustability, with up to 130mm of fore-aft adjustment. The seat angle can also be adjusted from -1.5 degrees to 28.5 degrees in the luxurious ‘comfort’ setting. The second-row also has a 40/20/40 split-fold, further enhancing versatility.
Storage has not been neglected, with various storage sections – including under the driver’s seat – offering a flexible solution. The rear luggage area is variable in layout, with a maximum capacity of 450 litres representing a 100-litre uplift on the predecessor model.
The redesigned interior features a mix of high-quality materials and horizontal design segments that create a modern look and feel. Of course, a wide array of personalisation is achievable via MINI Yours.
