How Much Does a 2021 MINI Cooper Countryman Cost?

The 2021 Mini Countryman is available in four models, each with a different powertrain: the Cooper, the Cooper S, the John Cooper Works, and the Cooper SE plug-in hybrid, all of which used to serve as the Countryman trim levels. Each of those except the hybrid is then offered in three trims -- Classic, Signature, and Iconic. For simplicity, we have opted to display the estimated pricing for the base Classic trim on each engine model. Then we show the added cost and content of the Signature and Iconic trim levels in parentheses. The added amount is based on the price of the Classic trim. To put it mildly, Mini’s pricing, content, and options are a hot mess. We’ve attempted to clean it all up as much as possible. ALL4 (AWD) on the Cooper and Cooper S models adds $2,000 to the posted price. AWD is included in JCW and SE plug-in hybrid models. Prices don’t include the destination fee. The new Mini Countryman Oxford Edition ($26,500) is the bargain of the bunch. It's equipped with all the standard equipment of the Classic Trim (see below), plus other welcome features like Union Jack taillights, an 8.8-in display, 18-inch alloy wheels, run-flat tires, a black headliner, and heated front seats. Mini says the Oxford Edition has a no-haggle bargain price made possible by not offering any incentives on the car. The Cooper Classic ($29,100) comes with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine, 17-in alloy wheels, panorama roof, LED headlights and fog lights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, SensaTec faux leather seating, air conditioning, roof rails, rear parking sensors, a backup camera, heated outboard mirrors, push-button start, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, Active Driving Assistant, Bluetooth connectivity and a 6-speaker audio system with satellite radio capability and a USB port, and run-flat tires. The Cooper S Classic ($31,900) has the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. The John Cooper Works Classic ($41,500) comes with the high-output 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. The Cooper SE Classic ($41,500) uses the hybrid powertrain and comes with AWD. To the Classic’s features, the Signature (+$2,500) adds 18-in wheels, remote keyless entry, power liftgate, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and 6.5-in touchscreen. Building on the Signature features, the Iconic (+$6,500 to $7,500 depending on model) includes 19-in alloy wheels, premium leather upholstery, 8.8-inch touchscreen display with navigation and Apple CarPlay and Harman Kardon audio. Like every Mini, the Countryman is highly customizable: You can order it however you’d like. It takes between one and two months to get one, but take our word for it — when you take a gander at the long, involved list of options and packages, you will probably agree that it makes sense to order exactly what you want. Here’s a small sampling of available packages (not all are available on every trim): The Touchscreen Navigation Package, real-time traffic info, Apple CarPlay, wireless charging and a navigation system. The Driver Assistance Package includes park distance control, adaptive cruise control, a parking assistant, and a head-up display. And the list of factory packages and stand-alone options goes on and on. Note that Android Auto integration isn’t available, but for 2021 Amazon Alexa is. The dealer also has a parts department bristling with customizing elements to further tailor your Countryman.

Is the 2021 MINI Cooper Countryman a Safe Car?

The 2021 Countryman has mandated safety features such as traction and stability control, backup camera and tire-pressure monitoring system, plus front-knee airbags, front-side airbags and full-length side-curtain airbags. Active Driving Assistant, which includes forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking, is standard on the Countryman. Adaptive cruise control is optional. However, other modern safety and driving-assistance features such as lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist and blind-spot monitoring are not available. Such features can easily be had on a Kia Seltos, Mazda CX-30, or other lower-priced subcompact SUV. As of 2020, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had not given an overall safety rating to the Mini Countryman. The nonprofit 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.

2021 MINI Cooper Countryman vs the competition

2020 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. 2020 Mazda CX-30 — This all-new Mazda crossover SUV has gorgeous design, spry manners and a full roster of the latest safety features – all at a starting price about $8,000 less than the Mini Countryman. 2021 Kia Seltos — Another all-new entry to the small SUV class, this Kia brings a rugged but fun-loving attitude, optional turbo engine, and a full suite of active safety features. It also starts under $22,000. Used Range Rover Evoque — It, too, is British, and a high-style choice that offers a compelling design and distinctive color schemes. It’s much pricier, though, so a used model could be worth considering.
