2011 Mini Countryman: Cram it in the Boot!

May 18, 2011

Another day, another trip to the new place with some boxes. But taking yet another minivan would be a cop-out (I'm also sick of them), so this time, I thought I'd see how much I could cram into our Mini Countryman's boot.

The answer is that much, which I think is pretty impressive given its size. The Countryman's boxy shape is definitely helpful when moving boxes and with more Tetrising, I could've fit more. Unfortunately, the back seats don't fold entirely fold flat and as Al mentioned, you stupidly have to pull an inboard tab to commence folding.

Either way, if you really want a Mini but need extra room for stuff (say, loads of boxes), then the Countryman indeed delivers. I should note, however, that I did not try to cram a six-foot sub into the boot. You're welcome to try.
