Powerful and confident brakes
Interior controls are easy to locate and use

Less usable cargo space than its competitors
Interior quarters are cramped, especially for rear passengers
Drive modes are either laggy or frenetic

The 2021 MINI Cooper Countryman's #4 ranking is based on its score within the Subcompact SUVs category. Currently the MINI Cooper Countryman has a score of 7.8 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Roomy, supportive seats
Well-crafted interior
Fun to drive

Cons
Weak base engine
Below-average cargo capacity
High price tag

The biggest Mini gets a smattering of updates for 2021. Its unmistakable appearance is now even more distinctive due to a restyled front end. LED lighting elements promote its British heritage through a Union Jack motif on the taillights. There's now a Piano Black Exterior option that replaces the Mini's chrome trim with gloss-black pieces. A set of fresh wheel designs as well as White Silver and Sage Green metallic paint colors are new too. Inside, the infotainment system's housing is redesigned with gloss-black material.

Pros
Well-built interior,
Mini character in a family size,
generous complimentary maintenance.

Cons
Neither quick or nimble,
plug-in hybrid is unremarkable,
lacks some popular driver assists.
