The MINI Countryman is the largest and most practical car that MINI produces. It has enough space to seat four adults and plenty of boot space too, yet it still manages to keep that distinctive MINI styling inside and out.

Unless you choose to buy your MINI Countryman with large alloy wheels, the ride is smooth and comfortable on uneven roads thanks to supple suspension and the higher ride height. Plus, the high driving position means visibility is good. The jacked-up suspension and optional ALL4 four-wheel-drive system means it's possible to take the Countryman off-road but it's not as good as the Mazda CX-5 in this area.

The latest model gets a new centre console layout, surrounds for the speedo and air vents, extra paint colours and various trim and option changes to add to the personalisation options - a big draw of the MINI range is the amount of customisation it offers to new buyers.

The Countryman is available in three standard trim levels: One, Cooper and Cooper S, with the racy John Cooper Works performance version available for those needing extra power and grip. It's powered by a turbocharged petrol engine with 215bhp and gets ALL4 4x4 as standard. It's very pricey compared to the alternatives though.
