A joy to drive.
August 13, 2018
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.
