The Mini Countryman looks like the result of someone jamming the leftover Russian steroids from the last Olympics into a regular Mini. Nearly three feet longer than its baby brother, the Countryman boasts four doors, five seats, 50 cubic feet of space.
Despite its relative bulk, this is by far the best Mini. It’s the most comfortable, practical, well-equipped, refined, economical – even the quickest, with the help of an electric motor for superb low-end kick. Plus, it can glide along on EV-mode for 12 silent miles.
It’s also the most expensive at $40k, but clearly worth it.
