2017 Mini Countryman All4

Lauren Fix travels to Montreal, Canada to review the most adventurous mini yet – the 2017 Mini Countryman.

THE BIGGEST, MOST ADVENTUROUS MINI YET.
The reimagined 2017 MINI Countryman forges new ground with world-class performance engineering, available ALL4 all-wheel drive, innovative new technology, and even more room for passengers, and carry more gear.

Unprecedented spaciousness and versatility come together in an interior full of thoughtfully designed packing solutions and refined passenger comforts—like 40/20/40 split rear seats that fold down individually, an optional foldable cargo floor, and even a foldable Picnic Cushion option that transforms the rear bumper into a cushioned seat.

STANDARD
This expansive dual-pane sunroof extends to the back seat, so everyone can let in the great outdoors and enjoy the fresh air.

REAR-VIEW CAMERA
STANDARD
Maneuver tight spots with ease, thanks to a crisp, clear picture of what’s behind you, and illuminated guidelines to help gauge your distance from other vehicles or objects.

MINI CONNECTED
STANDARD
Get key motoring data, entertainment, hands-free communication with Bluetooth, and more through this 6.5” high-resolution display.

3 DRIVING MODES
STANDARD
Green Mode optimizes fuel delivery for a more efficient drive. Sport Mode tightens the steering for a more responsive, exhilarating ride. Mid Mode provides a perfect balance. And you can transition seamlessly between modes with the flick of a switch. Simple, but powerful.

COMFORT ACCESS
STANDARD
Leave the keys in your pocket with our keyless entry feature. Comfort Access adds a transceiver to your key that your MINI will recognize, letting you lock or unlock the car by pushing a button on the door handle.

SPLIT-FOLDING REAR SEATS
STANDARD
With sliding and reclining rear seats that fold down individually, you can customize the seating arrangement to accommodate more cargo without sacrificing passenger comfort.

ALL4 ALL-WHEEL DRIVE.
Complementing the Countryman’s muscular stance and higher seating position, the available ALL4 option is one of the foremost all-wheel drive systems in its class, providing superior all-weather capability and traction on all surfaces, from slick city streets to rugged country roads. And even if road conditions are pristine, the optimal tracking stability of the ALL4 system delivers unmatched control for tackling sharp turns with ease.

SIX-SPEED MANUAL
We believe in the sensory connection between driver and machine, so our precision 6-speed manual transmission comes standard on the Cooper Countryman and Cooper Countryman ALL4, delivering impeccably fluid shifting for an incredibly responsive road feel.
