2015 MINI Countryman

2015 MINI COUNTRYMAN:  Heading into the 2015 model year, the Mini Countryman is the second highest selling Mini model in the U.S.  Consumers of small crossover vehicles have their choice of the Countryman Cooper, Cooper S, Cooper S ALL4, and John Cooper Works ALL4.  The Countryman is the first Mini with four doors, a large tailgate, five seats and optional all-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive system ALL4 specially developed for Mini continues to be available for the Cooper S Countryman. It comes as standard with the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman. Up front is a new radiator grille that distinguishes the 2015 design. Hidden under the hood is a 16-valve, aluminum-alloy engine equipped with Valvetronic technology that delivers 181 hp and is mated to a six-speed Getrag manual transmission with dual-cone synchronizers,  or the Aisin six-speed that change gears automatically and lets you control the shift points using F1-style steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.. The MINI Countryman five-passenger cabin offers expansion of the luggage compartment from approximately 17.5 to as much as 42.2 cubic feet. It is possible to adjust the tilt of the seats, and the rear backrests can be folded down in a 40 : 20 : 40 split.  Minis are the first cars to have Pandora Internet Radio fully integrated across all models. Expanded range of metallic paint finishes now includes shades called Blazing Red, Volcanic Orange, and Lapisluxury Blue. A contrasting paint finish for the roof and exterior mirror caps in orange, black or white are available on request and at no extra charge for all model variants.  A contrasting paint finish in red is likewise offered free of charge exclusively for the new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman.
