Most "eye catching", added stripes

Performance, very good. Excellent Mileage, Maintenance & Service is affordable. Service & Sales Support is fantastic. The Mini is excellent in comfort, with plenty of leg and headroom!

Much more reliable than my '09 Clubman S

This MINI is significantly more comfortable than our previous one. It sacrifices very little in maneuverability or performance, for the huge gain in ride comfort. The ECO mode really quiets the car and smooths the ride while traveling on interstate highways, and the Sport mode tightens the suspension and quickens acceleration, making a country road blast more exciting. Reliability is light years ahead of the R-series MINI's. For those who owned and were burned by the R56, R55 or R60 MINI's, the F-series are worth a second look.

It?s a fun car

The car is good. Still to much interior road noise from the tires and lack of sound proofing. I have a 2012 F150. You don?t here a thing inside. You just enjoy the ride

A joy to drive.

Before buying the Mini Cooper Countryman base model, 1.5 liter engine, I compared it to an an Audi Q2 which was another option in a crossover, but the Q2 does not have the passenger space of the countryman. Although many reviews say the base model has less power than the S anda pokey engine, for my purposes it has plenty of zip even with a full passenger load. I drive it in the mountains and it has plenty of power. It especially gets gas mileage on the freeway.

Precise and Sporty..Stylish and Stable

Mini Countryman (Cooper) is very spacious, well-designed and comfortable. The chassis is superb and stable with a very precise and sporty but compliant. Based on the BMW X1, the Mini Countryman has a great platform. Space and utility is great as are the rear power tailgate with kick opening and auto trans. Wish I had bough the "S' version with 189hp and bigger more powerful brakes - both of which are well needed. Style in green with white roof and stripes and proportions are perfect.

Great looking car. Very uncomfortable seats

Recently leased '18 Countryman S. Very uncomfortable sport seats in S version. Tough ride if traveling more 15 minutes. Wish seats could be changed out :(

BEST CAR I'VE OWNED

MY NEW 2018 COUNTRY MAN IS THE BEST THING EVER. WE NAMED HIM THE CHAMPION AT OUR HOME, HE MAKES ME EXCITED TO WAKE UP IN THE MORNING BEFORE WORK JUST TO DRIVE HIM. MY DAUGHTER ALSO HAS A MINI COOPER THAT SHE LOVES.

I just bought it, check back in a year

Great looking car, the only objection I can find is that the front seats are very uncomfortable. I had to put a cushion on a brand new car seat so I can stand to ride any distance.
