Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

The five-seat Mini Cooper Countryman serves as the brand's entry into the small-crossover segment. It has a taller stance and, unlike other Coopers, four conventional side doors. All-wheel drive is available. Buyers have a choice of a normally aspirated four-cylinder engine or a turbo four-cylinder (S versions). The Countryman competes against the Volkswagen Tiguan and Nissan Juke.

New for 2014
Heated mirrors and washer jets are now standard. The unusual Center Rail sliding-console system has been replaced by standard dual cupholders for the backseat with a 12-volt power outlet.


A newly available City Package includes an alarm system, power-folding side mirrors, heated mirrors and washer jets, auto-dimming rearview and side mirrors, rear parking sensors and a proximity key. Also available for 2014 are interior and exterior John Cooper Works packages that add the sportier styling features of John Cooper Works models, but not their performance upgrades.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
