Mini Cooper S Countryman

The Cooper S Countryman (CSC) comes nearly 10 years after BMW’s remake of the original MINI. The new model arrives at a time where the original enthusiast buyers would have grown up a little and are looking around for a more practical option beyond the Mini Cooper Coupe, Cabriolet or Clubman.

The latest CSC pays quiet homage to the original Countryman that came with only two doors and wooden panelling on the outside of its station wagon exterior.

Its descendant though has grown both in size and number of doors on its SUV-esque crossover platform.

The CSC is an all-new MINI that is developed on an all-new platform. This explains why its origins are not in Oxford but Austria at the Magna-Steyr facility.
