2018 Mini Cooper Countryman – Video
MINI Countryman is the most spacious and versatile vehicle in the MINI range, 4.30 m long, 1.56 m high and 1.82 m wide: it offers comfort and roominess with five “real” seats and a large trunk.
The raised seating position ensures an optimal view in all directions and the characteristic driving fun.
The rear bench is adjustable by 13 cm in the longitudinal direction. The folding backrest of the rear sofa is divisible in the ratio 40:20:40. Moreover, the inclination can be adjusted so as to have, depending on the requirements, greater sitting comfort or additional space in the tail for the transport of luggage. The boot space is 450 liters and can be expanded, if necessary, up to 1,390 liters.
Optionally, the touchless opening and closing of the rear lid is offered in combination with Comfort Access.
The item-holder package, offered as an option, includes the variable loading floor, eyelets and fastening belts and a stainless steel strip for the edge of the load compartment. An absolutely exclusive option is the Picnic Bench, a support surface
variable that comes out of the boot and offers space for two people.
Dynamism and driving fun .
What better travel companion to escape from the city towards Passo dello Spluga, if not a MINI Countryman Cooper D ALL4?
MINI Countryman achieves excellent efficiency values also in
combination with ALL4 all-wheel drive, available on request for all model variants (except for MINI One and One D). The ALL4 all-wheel drive is not only distinguished by precise and fast reactions to changes in the driving situation, but also by compact construction and high internal efficiency. It consists of a power-take-off unit integrated into the front axle differential, a cardan shaft that connects the rear axle and a hang-on clutch that provides precise transmission of the drive torque to the rear wheels. The electronic system control is interconnected with the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) driving stability regulation and recognizes in advance when the power distribution needs to be adapted.
The sophisticated construction of the MINI Countryman chassis combines the proven MacPherson front axle principle and multilink rear axle with optimized weight and rigidity construction and specific model calibration. This creates the basis for precise handling characteristics and maximum agility. Everything is completed by electromechanical steering with Servotronic function, powerful brakes and DSC driving stability adjustment system.
The Dynamic Damper Control is also offered as an option on the MINI Countryman.
To make a mixed route dynamic, such as the road that connects Lecco to the Spluga Pass, you can use the MINI Driving Modes, optional available on all engines, which allows you to select the calibration of the car in the three MID, SPORT and GREEN, depending on the type of route and the desire to increase the fun or optimize consumption. The system also influences the characteristic line of the accelerator and steering pedal, the mode of operation of electrically operated comfort equipment and, depending on the engine and equipment, also the engine sounds and the shifting characteristics of the Steptronic transmission. .
Safety and technology
MINI is not just style and elegance, it is also modernity and innovation. Technology is a fundamental element to guarantee maximum comfort, connectivity and security, all in full MINI style. The offer of options available on the MINI Countryman offers numerous technological innovations, in particular related to the world of Infotainment and security.
