A Quick MINI Countryman Review
MINI roared its way into our hearts with the retro-funk aesthetic and zippy handling. The Countryman retains these beloved characteristics while offering an SUV-style experience. The Countryman is available in several options: Cooper, Cooper S, Cooper ALL4, Cooper S ALL4, John Cooper Works ALL4, and Cooper S E ALL4. Since 2018 brings two new models to the family, let’s take a look at the John Cooper Works and the Countryman S E.
The former is a sporty performer with a turbocharged four-cylinder capable of churning out 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It powers from zero to 60 in 6.2 seconds. The latter is a hybrid that combines a turbocharged three-cylinder with a synchronous electric motor for an output of 221 horses and 284 lb-ft of torque. It just about equals the JCW with a zero to 60 acceleration of 6.7 seconds. And with 65 MPGe, the S E is a spunky a go-getter.
Benefits of 2018 MINI Countryman
The Countryman offers the spirit of the MINI in a more spacious package; you can comfortably fit two adults in the back, opening up the possibilities for more adventures. You can also feel more confident that you’ll get where you want to go – as a subcompact SUV with available all wheel drive, you can take the road less traveled.
