The Mini Countryman is a midsize SUV that competes with super-popular cars like the Nissan Qashqai. It has a strong image that’s the envy of the class, but with a patchy ride and limited practicality, it’s far from perfect.
The compact SUV class has more contenders than ever before, and the standard of those contenders has never been higher. That means the Countryman’s job has never been tougher, so does it have both the style and substance to compete?
The so-called premium compact SUV segment is booming, and Mini is keen to capitalise with the new for 2017 Countryman.
Mini has announced that its all-new Countryman crossover will go on sale in February next year, priced from £22,465.
