After the update, the car’s design was refreshed, the engine range also changed and a more modern multimedia system appeared.

Mini has updated its popular Countryman crossover. Information about the new product and official photos were published on the Web on Wednesday, May 27. Note that the second generation of Mini was not accepted with joy by all fans of the brand – despite its striking appearance, the car lost some features of the corporate identity of the car. Therefore, the update begs for it. Expressive headlights, which already in the standard version received an LED filling, first rush in the front part. Also note the original pattern on the grille. In the back we highlight the lights, which are made in the form of the British flag. All this gives the exterior of the updated Countryman a truly unique look.

The updated car received an expanded palette of body shades, as well as several options for updating rims. There are innovations in the cabin. The main thing was the return of the interior in a blue tint, which will appeal to very many. Updated engineers and a multimedia system that has Mini Connected technology.

In the motor range, certain changes have occurred – turbocharged engines have received new technology for more driving pleasure, as well as high environmental friendliness. But the output power remained the same. The 1.5-liter turbo engine is capable of delivering 134 hp, while the 2.0-liter turbo engine has an output of 189 hp.

Four-wheel drive modification John Cooper Works has the most powerful power plant with a return of 301 hp. A hybrid version of Countryman SE All4 is also available, which, thanks to the combination of a gas engine and an electric motor, is capable of delivering 224 hp.

Modifications with front-wheel drive are equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission, all-wheel drive versions are combined with 8-speed automatic transmission, and the hybrid Countryman retained a 6-speed gearbox. Prices are expected to rise, but not very significantly – for the base Cooper ask for about $ 29,250, while John Cooper Works will have to pay $ 42,250. Sales should begin this summer.
