Start with an ultra-rigid body. Push the wheels all the way to the corners to maximize cockpit space – and create a wide, go-kart stance. Turn the engine sideways to create even more space and nearly perfect balance. Add premium features like a performance-tuned suspension and Dynamic Stability Control and voilà. You’ve got a car with world-famous handling and an incredibly fun ride you’ll never forget.
The Countryman’s available all-wheel drive helps you stay in control no matter what the road, or Mother Nature, throws at you.
Much to the dismay of some classic Mini fans, our cars have gotten a bit bigger over the years. But thanks to clever engineering, our cars have always been surprisingly big on the inside. In fact, many tall people specifically buy MINIs because it's one of the only cars they're comfortable in. Shocked? Climb in and see for yourself.
OVER 10 MILLION POSSIBLE DESIGNS. We build cars for adventurers, thinkers, creators, free spirits, lovers and fighters against the conventional. These individuals don’t fit the mold. And neither do we. Instead, we offer millions of possible ways to make your MINI as You-nique as you.
MORE FUN. LESS FUEL. At MINI we’ve always been about doing more with less. And not because it’s fashionable. We were small and fuel-efficient when everyone else was going big. And as we motor on, we’ll continue to lead the way in trying to reduce our impact without sacrificing the iconic performance and style that make a MINI a MINI.
A car that automatically adjusts the speed of the windshield wipers and stereo volume to match how fast you’re going. A high-def screen with silky smooth Pandora® and iOS cover flow. Headlamps that swivel to light the way around corners for you. Bluetooth phone pairing that’s actually simple to use. Adjustable mood lighting. MINIs come packed with exceptional technology designed to enhance and simplify your motoring experience.
Did you know MINIs are the first cars to have PANDORA® Internet Radio fully integrated across all models? Which means when your MINI is equipped with MINI Connected and the free PANDORA® iPhone® app, you can pump all your favorite PANDORA® stations through your car’s stereo and browse them right on the dashboard display using your normal stereo controls.
At MINI, our commitment to quality, durability and customer satisfaction is clearly demonstrated by the 4-year/50,000-mile MINI New Passenger Car Limited Warranty and a 12-year/unlimited-mileage warranty against rust perforation. And we're not just talking about a couple key parts of your MINI. Our warranty covers everything, bumper to bumper and everything in between, except the tires.
Once again, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the 2014 MINI Countryman the Top Safety Pick. One major way MINIs help keep you safe? By helping you avoid an accident. And with ultra-nimble handling and world-class braking systems, the Countryman is uniquely equipped to help you circumvent potential trouble on the road. Of course, with its strong cockpit frame, smart, dual-stage airbags and sophisticated emergency systems, a Countryman is also superbly outfitted to help keep you safe and sound if trouble is unavoidable.
The MINI Countryman comes equipped with 7 total front and side airbags: 2 front, 2 side-impacts in each front seat, 2 ceiling mounted side curtains and 1 additional knee airbag on the passenger side. With “smart” safety sensors regularly monitoring driver and front passenger position, seatbelt use and impact severity, this sophisticated system will deploy each airbag at the safest, most optimal rate. And because the side-impact airbags are in the seat (rather than the door), they move with you and will open in exactly the right spot – no matter where your seat is. The real innovation, though, are our side-curtain airbags. Set in the middle of the roof area on both sides, they stay inflated longer than conventional airbags, helping to prevent head or neck injuries that can commonly occur in multiple-impact collisions, while helping to safeguard you from flying glass.
