What can you expect from the new Mini Countryman 2017? Well, you may be mistaken by the name because the car is far from being mini. But this new Countryman is agile, responsive, and super fun to drive. You would probably be surprised to see that such a dimension can move swiftly in the most amazing way but then again, it is mini – a brand that is always connected to premium quality and power.
The New Design
Don’t let the name fool you. When you hear the word ‘mini’, you are probably thinking about the smaller and the tinier version of something bigger. Well, Mini usually comes with small and compact design but not with this line, anyway. With the SUV-like design, this new Mini Countryman 2017 is definitely not a compact vehicle – try to think of it as a Maxi but never doubt its performance and power. Despite the size, this ride is super fun to drive – it is easily maneuvered around and it is totally practical. And there is a possibility that the hybrid version will be ready soon enough – which is another appealing offer from the brand.
This ride has undergone quite a long and complicated history in the making. Designed in 1959 as a ride for effective usage, the brand has maintained its name in the auto industry for so many years until the early of 2000s. Since then, the brand has undergone many development projects and works with various styles are created. The mini has come in a hatchback, coupe, convertible, and also Countryman.
The new Mini Countryman 2017 will be the second generation of Countryman with quite an interesting evolution. When compared to the other crossover types, the Countryman is still smaller and shorter but it is definitely bigger than the other typical types of Mini. And let’s not forget that the addition of volume is pretty nice for the legroom and headroom on the rear seat.
