THE MINI JCW COUNTRYMAN IS THE PERFECT PARTNER FOR THE ADVENTUROUS FAMILY MAN.
Becoming a father is a life-changing event. Everyone knows that dads make many sacrifices in order to care for their kids. Going out to the movies and meeting up with friends frequently take a backseat to childcare duties. For enthusiasts, becoming a father also means getting a more sensible car. But who says that “sensible” means mundane? If you’re an outgoing and adventurous person who’s always led an active lifestyle, then the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman has to be the car for you.
As the largest model in the MINI range, the Countryman isn’t just spacious and practical. It’s extremely versatile, too.
There are big storage points for a variety of knick-knacks, which for a family man, would include anything from baby wipes to stuffed toys. Child seats and blankets are easily accommodated in the roomy backseat. The useful 450-litre boot swallows your diaper bag, pram and shopping with ease. Yes, a dad’s life revolves around his family. But being a good dad doesn’t mean letting childcare duties consume you fully. Sometimes, they must take a backseat to you.
When your missus offers to look after the kids for a few hours, that’s when the adventurer in you reemerges. Be it wakeboarding, kayaking or hiking, the Countryman can take it all on, too.
Oftentimes, however, all an enthusiast wants to do is go for a drive – alone. That’s where the MINI JCW Countryman really comes alive. Its turbocharged 2-litre engine, which pumps out 231hp and 350Nm, is paired to a sports exhaust system to create a stirring soundtrack.
And despite its size, the MINI JCW Countryman is just as athletic as its smaller siblings. Elements such as its ALL4 all-wheel-drive system, sports chassis and Dynamic Damper Control endow the JCW Countryman with the nimbleness you’ve always expected in a MINI.
So take that corner a little quicker than you should. Get down and dirty by venturing off the beaten path for a mud-bath. For those few precious hours, you feel alive again.
When your little expedition is done, you’ll have a big grin on your face and newfound pep in your step.
After all, you’re more than just a family man. And with the MINI JCW Countryman, you’ll always be an adventurer, too.
