Mini is reportedly planning an even larger, more rugged replacement for the Countryman, emerging as the third of five core models planned for the Anglo-Saxon marque.
2016 Mini Countryman
Mini has introduced three generations of retro hatchback since its revival in 2001, with numerous bodystyles spun off that core model. But the Countryman has always stood apart from the rest (save the Paceman which was in turn spun off of it). The Mini crossover is bigger than the rest of the lineup, has more doors, more driven wheels and a familiar yet different look.
