In February this year, MINI took the wraps off the second generation MINI Countryman in India at the 2018 Auto Expo. Now, MINI has launched the biggest Countryman to be ever built at a starting price of ₹ 34.90 lakh for the Cooper S, ₹ 44.4 lakh for the Cooper S JCW and ₹ 37.4 lakh for the Cooper SD (all prices ex-showroom, India), similar to what we had expected. Available in two petrol trims and one diesel trim, the new MINI Countryman underpins the new BMW X1 and will be locally assembled at BMW's Chennai plant. Based on a completely new platform, the new MINI Countryman gets a host of design changes along with new gadgets to play with on the inside.
MINI Countryman offers extra space, 30 per cent more to be precise, according to the folks at MINI. The increased space gives the passengers more front and rear legroom, front and rear headroom and rear seat shoulder-room than before, which is much more than what its segment competitors have on offer. As far as the features list goes, MINI has added MINI's acclaimed Satellite Navigation System, Bluetooth, Cruise Control, Emergency E-call and Active Guard among others. Moreover, the company is also offering the owners a chance to personalize their new Countryman, with extensive colour and trim options, advanced technology features and a range of option packs. One such option is a new 8.8-inch touchscreen display as part of the MINI Navigation System XL, offering touchscreen multimedia and navigation control for the first time in a MINI.

Under the hood, the new MINI Countryman will come in both petrol and diesel engine options. While the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine will produce max power 189 bhp and peak torque of 280 Nm, the 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine will churn out 188 bhp of max power and 400 Nm of peak torque. Both engines will come mated to 8-Speed Steptronic transmission. Performance-wise, the petrol version is capable of going from a standstill to 100 kmph in under 7.5 seconds, while the diesel engine can do the same in 7.7 seconds.
