The biggest of the Mini’s, the Countryman, will be equipped with the 1.5-liter three-cylinder of the brand from July onwards. Depending on your petrol or diesel choice, one or one D gets on the back of the suitcase. The turbobenzine already has 102 hp and 180 Nm. Which requires 11.8 seconds to tap the hundred. Normal consumption and CO2 emissions drop to a respectable 5.5 l / 100 km and 126 g / km.
A summer review for the Mini-stable, so you can call these adjustments, because although technical little novelties you will not notice it on the outside. Let’s start with the greatest novelty right away. At night, the instrument cluster will shine a white glow instead of an orange tone.
A trend that we also saw at BMW, so we know where MINI is getting her mustard. Also new is the fuel meter. That loses its individually packed dashes and now decreases to zero in one digital meter. For better visibility.
Another small detail is the disappearance of the giant ring around the gearbox for driving modes. In the future, you switch a subtle switch under the air conditioning. Finally, Apple Carplay is waiting for it.
