2020 MINI Countryman Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Mini Countryman?

The Countryman, a five-seat subcompact SUV, is Mini’s largest model. It comes with a choice of turbocharged engines and front- or all-wheel drive. The base Countryman has a 134-horsepower, turbo 1.5-liter three-cylinder, the S gets a 189-hp, turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder, and the performance-oriented John Cooper Works gets a new 301-hp, turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Mini also sells the S E Countryman, which has a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. Competitors include the Audi Q3 and BMW X1.  

What’s New on the 2020 Mini Countryman?

S and higher versions now have LED foglights and headlights, and the performance-focused John Cooper Works model gets a boost in power with a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 301 hp that teams with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, front-drive models have a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, while all-wheel-drive versions use an eight-speed automatic. The plug-in hybrid S E Countryman gets greater battery capacity that increases its EPA-estimated all-electric range on a full charge from 12 to 17 miles. 

What Features in the 2020 Mini Countryman Are Most Important?

With a powertrain for any preference, including a plug-in hybrid, the largest Mini has plenty of style and technology to stand out in the crowded class. 

Should I Buy the 2020 Mini Countryman?

With sporty handling, stylish European looks and various customization options, there isn’t much else in the class like a Mini. It can get expensive with all the option packages, however.

Funnest car I’ve ever owned.

by Martymar from Odessa on September 9, 2020

Largest small car I’ve driven and great car for today’s times. Small enough to save money with today’s fuel prices yet big enough to carry everything needed to travel with family. Read full review

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.
