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.

The facelifted 2018 Qashqai gets a fresh look, more kit and new tech. It's a good thing, but is it a standout option in the small SUV segment?

Pros
Still looks smart
Above-average cabin practicality
Improved on-road refinement
Good cabin build quality
AEB now standard across the range

Cons
It's pretty expensive
Can feel underpowered
Key active safety reserved for top models
Ti, adaptive cruise not here until mid-2018
Tyre roar, busy ride on 19-inch wheels
Still no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

By: 
caradvice.com.au

Pros
Spacious interior for size
Addition of AEB
Good comfort equipment list

Cons
Aggressive tyre choice spoils ride
Space saver spare tyre
No Apple Carplay or Android Auto
