The 2020 Mini Countryman packs British charm and driving fun in a high-quality package that’s priced like a true luxury crossover SUV.

Pros
Attractive styling
Premium quality
Room for passengers and cargo
Active safety now standard
More powerful JCW

Cons
Gets very expensive, very fast
Overmatched base engine

Plug-in hybrid range still lacking

By:

For the 2020 model year, the Mini Cooper Countryman JCW gets a new engine that generates 301 horsepower. This powerplant offers significantly more muscle than the outgoing 228-hp engine. Also, the six-speed manual transmission has been discontinued; an eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters is the sole transmission.

Pros
Athletic performance,
snazzy sheetmetal, premium cabin.

Cons
Provides less cargo space than some rivals,
no Android Auto,
not available with blind-spot monitoring.

A very competitive posh crossover, but it fumbles some of Audi's traditional strengths.

Pros
Lots of equipment and tech,
practical,
striking to look at

Cons
The powertrains,
HMI and materials aren't as polished as Audi's norm
