The 2017 Mini Countryman is a small five-passenger wagon that carves out a unique niche by providing a playful alternative to typical subcompact crossovers. It's the largest vehicle Mini builds, but its size is comparable to small SUVs such as the Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V. Like other Minis, the Countryman's trims have similar feature content; they are instead differentiated by the engines underhood. There are multiple packages shared between the two trims and many stand-alone options, offering greater customization options than normally seen in this class.
The 2017 Countryman is offered in Cooper and Cooper S trim levels. In base Cooper form, the Countryman is well-equipped, even by Mini standards. It comes with a turbocharged three-cylinder engine, a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, and keyless entry and ignition. The Cooper S ups the ante with a more powerful turbo four-cylinder, LED headlights and sport seats.
Three packages provide the bulk of the Countryman's features: Convenience (rear armrest, cargo divider and a choice between a cargo area-mounted seating cushion or spare tire); Premium (power-adjustable front seats, a 12-speaker audio system, tinted glass and a power liftgate); and Technology (an 8.8-inch touchscreen, navigation, a head-up display and an automated parallel parking system). There's also a Sport package for the Cooper that adds some features from the Cooper S, and a Fully Loaded package that includes all packages. Some of the features from these packages are available as standalone options, and there are additional exterior and interior appearance modifications on the options list, such as hood stripes, chrome detailing and different interior trim pieces.
The 2017 Countryman is a bargain compared to other Minis if you think the larger car would be unreasonably expensive. Though the starting price is higher than those of the other passenger-friendly Minis in the lineup, equip them to match the Countryman's starting spec and you'll find the Countryman is actually less expensive than the Clubman and just slightly pricier than the four-door Hatchback. On the other hand, the Countryman commands a significant premium over competing subcompact SUVs and small wagons. Its high-quality interior materials, funky design and sporty driving characteristics are unusual for the segment, and might just tip the scales in its favor. If you want to jump into a thrilling wagon that doesn't fit the mold, use Edmunds' award-winning shopping tools to research and visualize your perfect 2017 Mini Countryman.
