The 2024 Mini Cooper Countryman is a compelling choice for individuals seeking a compact crossover that seamlessly combines sporty handling, distinctive design, and practicality.

In 2010, the first-generation Mini Cooper Countryman SUV was introduced as an alternative for buyers who found the marque’s retro British charm appealing but needed something with more space for occupants and cargo than the tiny Cooper hatchback offered. The second-generation Countryman arrived in 2017 and is still sold today, though it has been tweaked and refined over the seven model years since, including a facelift in 2021.

The 2024 edition retains its cheeky exterior styling and quirky interior, which is fitted with high-quality materials. Power is supplied by turbocharged three- or four-cylinder engines with either front- or all-wheel drive, and a plug-in hybrid powertrain is also available. Compared to its smaller siblings, the Cooper Countryman is less fun to drive—and behind-the-wheel playfulness is one of the things that has made other modern Minis attractive. Without that, and up against excellent competitors like the Volvo XC40, BMW X1, and Audi Q3, the Countryman’s heritage and retro looks simply aren’t enough to win our hearts.
