Mini was Major

by XFBI from Ft. Myers, Fl. on Fri Aug 25 2017

Roomy, very quick mobile and Kool styling with bells and whistles great mileage and a spare tire!!!! All run flats now which stinks, because I had a blowout with the mini and run flats with no spare will be costly.

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.

Fun car to drive and solid AWD

by MINISojourner from Asheville, NC on Thu Nov 09 2017

This car is everything I wanted. It is an AWD great for the 4 seasons I live in, it has great performance, sporty, elegant, 6 speed, and seats 5. Mine came with the roof rack so I can put a tent or storage unit on top. Perfect! Only wish it had bluetooth capabilities for my Iphone music. I had to buy a hundred dollar adapter to listen to Spotify.

Definitely a fun car to drive

by Sheltie from Columbia, SC on Mon Aug 13 2018

This is my wife's vehicle and is one of the 1st she has truly loved. We like Mini's and the Countryman is a great all-around vehicle from size, comfort, to performance.

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
