We’re just two years away from our first chance to drive an all-electric Mini, and this new concept gives us a clear idea of what we can expect it to look like.
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.
