Countryman Gets Some Updates for the New Model Year

The MINI Cooper Countryman is the largest MINI available (with 5 doors!). Despite being a MINI, it has a surprisingly roomy interior and can fit four adults comfortably. As one of the most practical MINIs, the Countryman will be getting some updates.

The modifications on the Countryman will roll out this month.  The ALL4 all-wheel-drive option on Countryman should be appealing for those living in areas with rough winter weather, like here in Pittsburgh. The all-wheel drive is powered by a 181-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder.

The Countryman still gets superb fuel economy with the base manual transmission getting 27 mpg city 35 mpg highway.

The interior gets an update with new styling and colors by adding Carbon Black across the instrument panel and air vents. This will be standard on all trims. Additionally, with the Chrome Line Interior option, the Carbon Black can be highlighted with chrome. There are also newly designed door inserts making the Countryman even more comfortable and practical.

The Countryman will also come standard with a three-seat rear bench, for the first time. This can be swapped for two individual rear seats at no cost.

MINI Countryman Coupe on Sale Early Next Year as 2013 Model

It’s what MINI calls ‘the world’s first premium miniature SUV coupe’. At the 2011 Detroit auto show, the MINI Paceman cruised in as a two-door version of MINI’s Countryman crossover. Since then, the Paceman concept car has evolved into the production-ready Countryman Coupe. At the 2012 Paris Auto Show, the Paceman showed up with a name change and the confirmation of sales in 2013.

Projected to have the drivetrain, 6-speed gearbox and 4-cylinder engine of the current 5-door Countryman, the Countryman Coupe will most likely sport the same 208 horsepower as its predecessor. A peppy John Cooper Works version of the Countryman Coupe will also be available, with a 1.6-liter twin-scroll engine turbocharged with 211 horses. The MINI Countryman Coupe sends all of this power to MINI’s exclusive AL4 all-wheel drive system (an option for front-wheel-drive will be available). As with all MINI cars, the electric speed-sensitive steering module will provide excellent handling and agility.

A unique back-end, alternate bumper and redesigned taillights will separate the two-door Countryman Coupe from the previous Paceman concept car design. Differences between the original Countryman and Countryman Coupe are significant. Aside from the 2-door design, the Countryman Coupe is a full inch shorter than the Countryman, creating more of a ‘horizontal’ design.

The cockpit of the Countryman Coupe is expected to have front leather sport seats and upscale materials coating the interior. Details on the technology and options available for the cabin have yet to be announced. Expectations are that the backseat should offer the same generous legroom that the original Countryman had to offer.

The Countryman Coupe will start worldwide sales in early 2013, with 20,000 models expected to come to the market. The Countryman Coupe will be MINI’s 8th production car, coming off the heels of the MINI Coupe and Roadster.

The new MINI Countryman Coupe will be available at MINI of Pittsburgh in 2013. Call us for arrival information, or visit our online inventory for our current selection of new MINI cars.
