MINI Countryman News
The biggest Mini is now bigger. And that actually makes it better.
The little crossover boasts 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.
It's like a miniature (no pun intended) BMW X5 xDrive40e.
Mini plugs in for a new future.
Yep, it's definitely a plug-in. Look for it on the road in 2019.
Martin Tomczyk is a former DTM champion and drives for BMW. Nasser Al-Attiyah is a two-time Dakar winner and drives for Mini. Watch what happened when they swapped rides.
The Mini Countryman Park Lane is the first special-edition version of the compact crossover ever from the automaker. Check it out, live from Geneva.
This prototype for the next-generation Mini Countryman was spotted testing in the frozen tundra with a brand-first hybrid propulsion system.
Make no mistake: Mini is the force to be reckoned with in the Dakar Rally. Former champion Nasser Al-Attiyah has just taken his second win in the famously grueling trans-continental rally, making it four in a row for BMW's premium small-car brand.
Competitors in the small-car segment didn't do nearly as well. Four vehicles earned "poor" grades.
While there are those who watch automotive exploits hoping (secretly or otherwise) for a spectacular crash, most of us are happy when everything goes smoothly. But at the end of the day, a daring stunt wouldn't be a daring stunt if there weren't some element of danger. And make no mistake about it, Guerlain Chicherit's recent long-jump record attempt was a daring stunt if ever there was one.
