What's New in the 2016 MINI Cooper Countryman?

The Countryman is unchanged for the latest model year. 

Which Cooper Countryman is the Best?

If you're going to buy a Countryman instead of the smaller Clubman, we say go all out and get the S ALL4 model. As the only Mini model with all-wheel drive, the S ALL4 could be a stretch worth making. Find a Mini Countryman for sale


How Much Does a 2016 MINI Cooper Countryman Cost?

Like all Mini models, the Countryman comes in three trim levels. Base models are simply called the Countryman (or, technically, the Cooper Countryman). If you want more performance, you can step up to the Cooper S Countryman. At the top of the range is the John Cooper Works trim.

The base-level Mini Cooper Countryman ($23,800) offers 17-inch alloy wheels, full power accessories, air conditioning, keyless entry, vinyl upholstery, HD Radio, Bluetooth, vinyl upholstery and an AM/FM stereo with a CD player, a USB port and an auxiliary jack. It also comes with the car's 121-hp 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive.

Step up to the Cooper S Countryman ($27,100), and you get a turbocharged version of the base model's engine that's good for 181 hp. You also get fog lights, a rear spoiler, sport seats and an upgraded exterior trim. All-wheel drive is optional on the Cooper S Countryman.

At the top of the Mini Cooper Countryman lineup is the sporty John Cooper Works trim ($36,400), which boosts power to 208 hp. It also includes 18-in wheels and a sport-tuned suspension.

The Cooper Countryman lineup is full of optional extras, as Mini is famous for letting drivers customize their cars any way they want. Options include adaptive headlights, heated seats, automatic climate control, a navigation system, a dual-pane sunroof, park assist, a keyless starting system, satellite radio and a 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. Drivers can also choose from dozens of wheel combinations, paint colors and interior schemes.

Is the 2016 MINI Cooper Countryman a Safe Car?

The 2016 Mini Countryman comes with standard stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and six airbags (front, front-side and full-length side-curtain). Unfortunately, it doesn't offer some of the latest modern safety features, such as forward-collision warning, a blind spot monitoring system or lane-departure warning.

Although the government had not yet crash-tested the Countryman at the time this article was written, the independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Countryman its excellent Top Safety Pick rating after strong performances in all the firm's crash tests.

2016 MINI Cooper Countryman vs the competition

2016 FIAT 500X -- The subcompact FIAT 500X is smaller than the Countryman, but it offers adept handling and eye-catching styling derived from the subcompact 500 hatchback.

2016 Jeep Renegade -- The Renegade is a compact crossover with a lot of style. It doesn't drive like a Countryman, but it certainly stands out more, and the Jeep offers more gadgets and equipment.

Used Subaru Impreza -- The Impreza hatchback has standard all-wheel drive, good cargo space and a loyal following. It lacks the Countryman's customizability and cool factor, though.
