The All new 2017 MINI Countryman is here to blow your mind away


The much awaited second generation of the MINI has recently been unveiled in the UK and it is already been acclaimed highly by industry enthusiasts and audiences alike. Upgraded to a longer and wider form, the luxe new version offers an array of novel features as well as functionalities that were clearly a miss in its previous counterparts.

Designed with a focus on enhancing ruggedness and strength, the new MINI retains the core fundamentals of the marquee beautifully while also seamlessly incorporating a range of new details. It is 200mm longer and 30mm wider than before and dons a trendy off- roader look. Taking after the new MINI Clubman’s 8- speed Steptronic automatic, it comes with greater leg and head room front and rear and about 30 percent more cargo space. Further, it offers an all-wheel drive which is perfect for countryside travels.

The second generation car adopts a 3-cylinder gas engine and combines it with an electric motor which makes it quicker to 60 mph than the Cooper S ALL4 due to its instant-on electric motor torque that flows to the rear wheels. Its roaring motor further produces the equivalent of 87 horsepower and generates 122 lb –ft of torque. Amongst a number of new features, the new countryman will be presented in five engine variants – two petrols and two diesels, along with a plug-in hybrid version that will arrive at a later date. Slotted for a February release in the UK, this new luxury off-roader will be priced from £22,465 (27413.59 USD) to £28,430 (34692.56 USD).
