2018 MINI Cooper Countryman

What We Like

Big interior given its exterior dimensions; fun to drive; quirky style; highly customizable; better value than other small luxury SUVs

What We Don't

Slow base engine; still pricey for an SUV of its size; advanced safety tech restricted to a very pricey package; plug-in hybrid's short all-electric range


What's New in the 2018 MINI Cooper Countryman?

The Mini Countryman was completely redesigned last year. 2018 will be the first official year for the John Cooper Works performance model and the E Countryman plug-in hybrid. Changes include just some minor interior tweaks.

Which Cooper Countryman is the Best?

Order your car. Don't get stuck paying for stuff you don't want or a color combination that's not exactly your cup of tea. In one to two months, you can have the exact Mini Countryman you like -- and you should even be able to get a similar price to one that's just sitting on a dealer lot. Either way, though, we would recommend getting the Cooper S due to its sufficiently powerful engine.

How Much Does a 2018 MINI Cooper Countryman Cost?

The 2018 Countryman is available in four model lines: Cooper, Cooper S, John Cooper Works and the Cooper S E plug-in hybrid.

Standard equipment on the Cooper ($26,600) includes 17-in wheels, a panoramic sunroof, roof rails, passive entry and keyless start, automatic headlights and wipers, a backup camera, rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, a height-adjustable driver's seat, leatherette vinyl upholstery, a sliding and reclining back seat, a 6.5-in display screen with a console-mounted controller, a USB port and an auxiliary audio jack.

The Cooper S ($31,200) adds 18-in wheels, LED headlights and fog lights, sport seats, multicolor ambient lighting and a special multicolor LED ring around the central touchscreen. ALL4 all-wheel drive also adds heated seats.

The John Cooper Works ($37,800) adds a sport-tuned suspension, styling and aerodynamic enhancements, and more aggressively bolstered seats. These styling flourishes can effectively applied to other trims within a pair of packages.

The Cooper S E plug-in hybrid ($36,800) is comparably equipped to the gas-only Cooper S, but the panoramic sunroof is not included.

Like every Mini, the Countryman is highly customizable, and you can order it however you'd like. It takes between one and two months depending on where you live in the country to get one.

Most options are available separately, but many of those are also bundled into packages for convenient ordering. The Cold Weather package adds heated front seats and auto-dimming, power-folding mirrors. The Premium package adds 8-way power front seats, a hands-free power tailgate, rear privacy glass and a 12-speaker Harman/Kardon sound system. The Technology package adds an 8.8-in touchscreen (with an upgraded console-mounted controller), a head-up display, an automatic parking system and wireless smartphone charging. The Convenience package adds a folding rear center armrest, additional 12-volt sockets and either a fold-out "picnic cushion" for tailgate parties or a spare tire. The aptly named Fully Loaded package includes all of the above. To that package can be added the Active Driving Assistant, which includes adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning and automatic braking system.

Additional options include a variety of upholstery options such as leather, special interior and exterior design flourishes, adaptive suspension dampers and satellite radio.

Is the 2018 MINI Cooper Countryman a Safe Car?

The 2018 Countryman comes standard with antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front knee airbags, front side airbags and full-length side-curtain airbags. A forward-collision warning and automatic braking system can be added to the Fully Loaded package. Blind spot monitoring is not available.

The non-profit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Countryman the best-possible ratings of Good in every crash test performed. Its headlights scored a second-worst Marginal, preventing a Top Safety Pick award.

2018 MINI Cooper Countryman vs the competition

2018 BMW X1 -- The X1 is mechanically related to the Countryman. It's a bit bigger, more powerful and has a more conventionally designed interior, but it's also pricier.

2018 Mazda CX-5 -- If you're mostly considering the Countryman for its fun-to-drive character, try the stylish CX-5. You could easily find it to be more fun, and it comes with more space and a lower price.

2018 Mini Clubman -- If you want a bigger Mini, but don't need it to be SUV-big, consider the Clubman, which is pretty much a compact hatchback (albeit, with two barn doors instead of a hatch). Read Mini Countryman vs. Mini Clubman: What's the Difference?

Used Range Rover Evoque -- It, too, is British, and a high-style choice that offers compelling design and distinctive color schemes. It's much pricier, though, so a used model could be worth considering.
