Despite its new design and a redesigned engineering from A to Z, the MINI Countryman in 2017 remains attached to the image and values of the brand, including acceleration and agility that owners love so much. In addition, the new architecture is reflected in the most spacious cabin in the history of MINI, with increased cargo capacity by 30% compared to the outgoing generation.
Combustion engines are taken to city Mini. In essence, we thus find the 3-cylinder 1.5 turbo of 136 hp (Cooper) and the 2.0 turbo of 192 hp (Cooper S). The diesel offer is based in turn on two blocks 2.0 150 hp (Cooper D) and 190 hp (Cooper SD). ALL4 all-wheel drive will be offered as an option across the range. Depending on the engine, customers can choose between a manual 6-speed transmission, a 6-speed automatic and also another automatic 8-speed.
However, the plug-in hybrid block release date is not yet communicated. She will speak a few months later. Finally, note that the new Countryman never give birth to a coupe version, the former Paceman never as successful as expected.
However, do not expect a revolution: the general features remain similar to that of the previous version. Tariffs have already been disclosed, except for those of the plug-in hybrid version, which is expected to approach that of the Cooper SD ALL4 Version.
