COOLEST QUICKEST LITTLE CAR

by Mini Tex from Port Aransas, TX on Fri Jul 14 2017

Really like the four door Countryman. The S gives it some spunk. I wanted a four door because i like to carry stuff around and the two door was just too small. It rides like a Sports Car so don't think you won't feel the road, but that is what makes it so much fun, and boy can it corner. Trying to figure out some of the options is a bit challenging but I have most of them down now. I LOVE it!

Best Mini sportscar to own

by StephenS from Lancaster, CA on Sun Jul 16 2017

This car is both a very economical car and a sports car in one. The controls are all user friendly. The amount of technology in the car was great. Amount of mpg was outstanding.

A unique car to have

by Quinonesxj from Allentown, PA on Sun Oct 21 2018

This is a great car. Very spacious so it can accommodate a family, yet still sporty enough to scratch that itch. It's very responsive and I feel very safe in it. I just wish it had a bigger gas tank.

Love my Mini Cooper Countryman

by LorelaisDad from Thompsons Station on Sat Oct 27 2018

This car drives like it is on rails. I absolutely love it. This is my second Mini that I have owned and my favorite of the two. My daughter and I have a wonderful time driving around town.

The best toy ever

by Mini lovers from Canton Ohio on Wed Nov 15 2017

First time to own Mini and never get regretted. Easy operation and feel a part of my body. There is nothing complaining about this small AWD vehicle with turbo charged power unit!!

Our Take on the 2012 MINI Cooper S Countryman

Editor's note: This review was written in October 2010 about the 2011 Mini Cooper S Countryman. Little of substance has changed with this year's model. To see what's new for 2012, click here, or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.

When Mini entered the market in 2002, its Cooper coupe appealed to Americans with its style and size at a time when bigger was still seen as better. That alone would have been enough to bring the brand success, but the car went on to exceed sales expectations because of how it drives.

If Mini's first crossover — the Countryman — succeeds, it will be due more to its style and versatility than for the driving experience for which Minis have... Read More
