2015 Mini Countryman will go on sale later this year.
Mini has touched down in New York with a revised variant of the Countryman. On the face of it, the refresh appears minor in the extreme. Look closely, however, and you’ll notice a new hexagonal grille, LED DRLs and fog lights, and a new set of 16- and 17-inch alloys. Mini has also created a few new paint colors (including Jungle Green metallic), a choice of stick-on stripes for the hood and roof, and optional high-gloss black trim.
Minor interior mods include revised instrumentation and chromed-out switchgear, as well as sound deadening material and the latest variant of the Mini Connected infotainment system. Mini continues to offer the new Countryman with an array of powertrain configurations, ranging from a 98-hp 1.6-liter four-pot in the Mini One Countryman to the range-topping John Cooper Works 218-hp twin-turbo unit. The Cooper S enjoys a 7 hp boost to 190 hp, while buyers will have a choice of a six-speed manual or automatic.
