ALL EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES INCLUDED IN YOUR PERFECT MINI.
It is classified as a "MINI SUV" or subcompact crossover – the smallest class of body-on-frame SUV and is engineered for off-road use with a ALL4 four-wheel drive. You could say the MINI Countryman is a big small SUV. Thanks to MINI’s creative use of space, it makes use of every centimetre. The high roof gives the tallest driver plenty of headroom, there's lots of leg room and the wide interior offers passengers plenty of space to find their space. It is one of the biggest small SUVs in the rear, too, and can comfortably accommodate two tall adults in the back, behind a couple of similar-sized people sitting in the front. Its back seats fold to offer extra boot space or legroom, with up to 1,390 litres of room to use. It’s a practical family car with premium looks but still tough, rugged and versatile enough to let you have serious offroad fun.
ALL4 all-wheel drive. The ALL4 system is an electro-hydraulic all-wheel drive system that uses an electronically managed hydraulic pump located on the rear axle to distribute torque to the front and rear wheels. It effectively splits engine power between the front and rear wheels on a 50/50 basis by default but redistributes 100% of power back to the front wheels on demand. This gives you all the control you need for all roads in all seasons.
The ground clearance or ride height of a car measures the least distance between the lower end of the vehicle body (chassis) and the road. So it defines the lowermost part of your MINI in comparison to the ground. The unladen ground clearance of the MINI Countryman is 165 mm, which is optimal if you are going to do a lot of driving on bumpy roads or encounter uneven surfaces and potholes.
Our range of 17-20” (up to 21" as accessory) elegant or sporty alloy wheels will greatly enhance your ride and give your MINI Countryman a very bold, individual look. Just select your engine performance and then choose from the selection of corresponding seasonal summer and cold weather wheels. As a general-purpose size, you might find 16" the most versatile. But the size of wheel is subjective as it really depends on your taste in design and your priorities. Consult your preferred MINI dealer for more information – and maybe take a test drive or two to see and feel the difference.
