2024 MINI Countryman C: Efficient drive and expressive design

MUNICH: With the MINI Countryman C, the premium compact car brand combines a high level of driving comfort and spacious room with an efficient 3-cylinder petrol engine.

“As an entry-level model, the MINI Countryman C combines typical MINI features such as agility and driving pleasure with generous standard equipment,” says Stefanie Wurst, head of the MINI brand.

With an output of 125 kW/170 hp, the entry-level model accelerates in 8.3 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and reaches a top speed of 212 km/h.

With 280 Nm of torque and efficient TwinPower Turbo technology, there's plenty of brand-typical driving pleasure.

The integrated mild hybrid technology is used to recover braking energy and supports the internal combustion engine during accelerations with 14 kW electric drive power.

The new MINI Countryman is 13 centimeters longer and eight centimeters higher than its predecessor.

There is a redesigned octagonal front grille, while short overhangs underline the agile vehicle character.

Distinctive LED headlights and rear lights accentuate the body design with optional new light signatures.

The stylish, concisely designed C-pillar adjoins the stretched vehicle roof flush and in the same colour.

Piano Black roof rails are now standard equipment and maximize the transport options of the crossover model, for example with a roof rack or the MINI roof box.

On uneven roads, 202 mm ground clearance and the dynamic chassis provide additional safety and comfort.

For the new MINI Countryman C, light-alloy wheels are available in various designs and sizes ranging from 17 to 21 inches.

With a panoramic glass roof, the interior has additional brightness and all-round visibility.

The standard sports seats with patterned multi-tone textile in the cockpit give passengers more space thanks to an additional width of three centimetres in the shoulder and elbow area.

The backrest of the three rear seats can be individually adjusted in six positions by up to 12° degrees.

The back seat, which can be moved up to 13 cm, creates additional legroom in the rear or even more cargo space.

Thanks to the rear seat backrest, which can be folded down at a ratio of 40:20:40, the trunk volume of 450 litres to 1460 litres can be easily and flexibly adapted to personal needs.

At the centre of the minimalistic interior design is the round OLED display with a diameter of 240 mm.

All driving functions can be controlled via the characteristic MINI toggle bar.

For the first time, Driving Assistant Plus expands the MINI Countryman with the option of partially automated Level 2 driving on motorway-like routes.

This allows the driver to take his hands off the steering wheel up to a speed of 60 km/h, provided that he continues to closely monitor the traffic and remains ready to intervene at any time.
