MINI brought their newest vehicle, the ’11 Countryman, to the 2010 New York Auto Show. A small crossover, the MINI Countryman bridges the gap between the classic MINI concept and a modern crossover vehicle. The MINI Countryman is a completely new car, unprecedented in the history of the MINI brand, though its likeness to the rest of its family is immediately apparent. While it is MINI’s largest production vehicle ever, it is still only a size “small,” and the company remains committed to the its core values… practicing fiscal, environmental and adrenal responsibility at all times.
The MINI Countryman powertrain options include Cooper, Cooper S or Cooper S with ALL4 (our-wheel-drive system). The Countryman will be the first crossover on the market to feature a turbocharged and direct-injected engine with VALVETRONIC technology, which together provide optimum performance and efficiency. And for those who are focused on gas mileage, MINI expects the Countryman to offer the best fuel economy in the crossover segment.
The Countryman will be on the streets early next year (2011).
