2012 MINI Cooper Countryman S 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
We bought the 2012 Countryman S with an automatic transmission. This car is really fun to drive - the most fun I've had driving since my 1965 MGB. I love the steering - it's tight and very responsive. Acceleration is fantastic, and the sport mode is awesome. The design of this car is really cool, and it's great having a car that doesn't look like the "cookie cutter" cars out there - they all look pretty much the same. We've only had it for about two months, and it's amazing how many people have asked about the car when we pull into a parking lot. Everyone thinks it's really a neat car. I'm 6'2", and there's plenty of head room and leg room.
Overall design - interior and exterior, handling, seat comfort while driving, heated seats, sport mode, sound system, storage in the rear, headlights are great, and the FUN factor.
There's nothing I would suggest to improve - it's perfect.
