2011 MINI Cooper Countryman S ALL4 4dr Wagon AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
We recently bought a new Mini Cooper Countryman S All4.
This car has been a dream to drive.
It actually drives better than our two year old Acura MDX.
I swapped out the stock run flat tires with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires as our prior Mini had run flat tires and the ride can be very harsh with run flats.
The Michelins make the ride much more comfortable and the ride is much quieter on the road.
We got the car loaded with almost every feature.
Mini Connected is a fun option and we hook an Iphone 4 up to it so we can get Facebook updates, Twitter updates and we also use Pandora to stream through the system.
There are many other options that would take a lot of time to cover.
This is one roomy Mini!
Four adults can fit comfortably in this car.
The boot is a little tight if you are trying to carry a lot of stuff in the back but it can be manageable.
Some may opt for the roof mounted rack/carrier to store extra things for long trips.
This car is a great compromise between the traditional Mini Cooper "go kart" driving and the comfort of a larger car.
No it will not handle like a Mini Cooper S (it's not supposed too) but it will put a smile on your face and will be one of the most fun to drive cars you will ever find.
Wish it was a little cheaper.
Would be nice to have power seats and tailgate.
