Mini took America by storm a decade ago with its charming Cooper hatchback. But not all who were smitten with the Mini’s adorable style and character could stuff their lives (and friends) within its tiny confines. Since then, Mini has launched various Cooper derivatives with added space and utility. The largest of these is the 2014 Mini Cooper Countryman, a small, four-door crossover/wagon creation.
The base Countryman comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels; roof rails; heated mirrors; driver-adjustable settings for steering effort and engine response; full power accessories; cruise control; ambient interior lighting; air-conditioning; height-adjustable driver and passenger seats; leatherette (vinyl) upholstery; a tilt-and-telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel; Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity; and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, HD radio and USB/iPod and auxiliary audio jacks.
