On paper, the Countryman has a pretty impressive list of specs (as expected) but does it feel just as impressive from the driver’s seat? For the most part, yes.
Boasting a 1.6 litre four-cylinder Mini TwinPower Turbo engine, the Countryman is more than capable of pushing the speed limit (it goes from 0 to 100km/h in 7.8 seconds).
What’s more, the car’s raised seating position offers a supreme view of the road, giving the “go-kart driving” feel a whole new dimension. But despite the elevated seating, just like many of the compact cars in the market, speeding through bumps and potholes in this petite thing does lead to a sore bum indeed — a good reminder to take it easy on the Malaysian roads.
It’s in this baby!
