TAKE CHARGE

CLEO (Malaysia) - - @PLAY -

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!

So rugged!
