2012 Mini Countryman: Video Road Test and Review
The entry level Cooper Countryman starts out at $22,450 and is powered by a naturally aspirated 1.6 Liter four cylinder that makes 121 HP and gets 35 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway, giving the Country man a range of over 400 miles on a single tank. A unique chrome grill surround sets the Countryman apart from its brethren, while all of the lifted four door coopers feature a unique center rail that connects both the front and rear passengers and seven standard airbags in the event things go wrong.
The $26,050 Cooper S Countryman is upgraded with a turbocharged 1.6 Liter four cylinder cranking out 181 HP and 177 lb-ft of torque, this is good for a 0 to 60 MPH time of only 7.0 seconds, while returning 32 MPG around town and 26 MPG at cruising speeds. The S is distinguished from lesser Countrymen by a stylish and functional air scoop sitting below a black mesh grill up front and dual chrome exhausts out back, while sport seats are now standard the automatics get upgraded to paddle shifters.
