The Countryman Mini expands its horizons to include an old concept with new updates. The new Countryman Mini has four doors and seats seven people, yet it lives up to its title as a mini mobile with its adorable, bite-sized stature.

The Countryman Mini is a conglomeration of the standard mini coupe with the back of a station wagon. From the front, the Countryman looks like the typical cute mini. But as you approach the sides--magic! It expands and you see doors where there were no doors before.

This change is for BMW to satisfy more of their customer base--families who want the additional seating. They tweaked the formula of the mini to expand the iconic Countryman Mini to a broader market. The mini is a quintessentially ‘cool’ car, but still boasts the kind of safety ratings and practicality that your mom will love.
