Mini unveils revised Countryman

Mini has unveiled a revised version of the Countryman with updated exterior design, reduced fuel consumption and emission figures, as well as enhanced equipment levels.

Increases in power output, improved aerodynamics and further efficiency enhancements, have resulted in better acceleration and top speed in some models.

All model variants now have lower fuel consumption and emission figures, as well as meeting EU6 emission regulations. Mini’s All4 all-wheel-drive system continues to be available on Cooper, Cooper S, Cooper D and Cooper SD Countryman. The All4 system comes as standard with the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman.

Detailed measures promoting efficiency include optimised air ducting in the area of the underbody, wheel bearings with a lower friction coefficient and tyres with reduced rolling resistance.

The four-cylinder spark ignition engine used in the MINI Cooper S Countryman, with twin-scroll turbocharger, direct injection and variable valve control, also sees an increase in output to 190 hp. This results in a reduction in the 0-62mph time of 0.1 sec to 7.5 secs, while the in-gear sprint from 50 to 75 mph in fifth gear now takes just 8.4 secs – down 0.2 secs.

Fuel consumption in the new MINI Cooper S Countryman on the EU test cycle has improved to 47.1 mpg, while CO2 emissions drop by three per cent to 139g/km.

Standard equipment on the revised Countryman includes air conditioning, Mini Centre Rail between the front seats and a radio/CD player with MP3 capability, aux-in socket, DAB radio, Bluetooth, five speakers and rear parking sensors.
