Driving a car as iconic as the BMW Mini Cooper can be an exhilarating experience, every time. When we took the new BMW Mini Cooper Countryman for a spin we pretty much knew what to expect, but there was an element of surprise all along the way. THE FUN The Countryman is undoubtedly a very powerful car, it is also a very young car. So you have a sunroof in case you want to let your hair fly. Then there is the state-of-art entertainment system that incorporates your phones so that you drive safe all the time. The visual boost system built into the central speedometer lets you take control of your music as you would on a top of the range audio system. It lists all the radio station, you music files and, in case you are synced using the iPhone app, even Twitter and Facebook updates. The music is top notch, even with just FM radio, and that is because of the Harman/Kardon hi-fi loudspeaker system that powers the car. It is as if the engine and the speakers have a small competition of their own to see who performs best.
