THE Countryman Mk2 is the first modern MINI you can truly use as a large family car. You can thank its big boot and roomy interior, which are the biggest of any MINI production car to date.
You also get the quirky design, excellent quality and multitude of personalisation options you’d expect of a modern MINI. ALL4 four-wheel drive is offered across the range, although the Countryman is no off-roader.
