MINI Countryman SUV (2020 - )

The compact crossover and SUV sector is one of the most competitive and fast-moving areas of the market and Mini’s popular Countryman has come in for a spruce-up and mid-life update. The changes are modest but encompass new styling, fresh trim options and minor updates to the engines. The plug-in hybrid option is of particular interest and is among the sportier of its type to drive.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The Mini badge is desirable – indeed, you voted it your ’most loved brand’ in the 2020 Auto Trader New Car Awards – and you’d expect it to carry a premium but the Countryman is priced competitively against rivals like the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA and Volvo XC40. That popularity will also score well for resale value and, by extension, monthly finance costs.

Like all of these cars the Countryman is also available as a plug-in hybrid and here the Mini looks keenly priced, at least by the bottom line figure. This updated version has improved electric-only range and reduced CO2 figures, which will help you save on fuel costs (assuming you plug it in to charge the battery) and VED, or ‘road tax’ as it’s known. Company drivers will especially love the hybrid, its higher purchase cost more than offset by the huge savings in Benefit In Kind it brings.

Private buyers may wish to think more carefully, given the hybrid can cost as much as £8,000 more than a petrol-only Countryman of the same trim level. You may claw some of that back if you can stick to short journeys on electric power but for longer journeys the hybrid isn’t as efficient as the figures might suggest.
