We have already completed the premiere of the classic Countryman with Czech prices. Now the higher version S ALL4 comes to the party. It is literally a partner for every occasion.
The classic Mini’s home ground has always been the city. With the Countryman, the carmaker ventures into the wild, but despite belonging to the SUV segment, it does not forget its roots. The modernized model combines a sporty style with robustness in an interesting way, while still remaining elegant.
In connection with a responsible approach, Mini has reduced the chrome decoration of the body. The effect is compensated by a contrasting paint job on the roof and attractive wheels with diameters from 17 to 21 inches. In the facelift, designers focused on new lights, a narrower grille and a new bumper, giving the car a sleeker overall feel.
The new shapes also have a technical purpose, as the drag coefficient has dropped to a segment-respectable 0.26. The rear is also completely redesigned in a similar vein, with the lights retaining the British flag graphic. The Countryman S ALL4 will be available in four trims.
Anyone who has studied the classic Countryman facelift knows what to expect in the interior. The dashboard is upholstered in two types of fabric and all driving and information/entertainment data is displayed on a central round OLED display with a diameter of 240 mm. Via Mini Experience, you can change the atmosphere of the interior through sound or visual effects. From a practical point of view, the split rear backrests in a ratio of 40:20:40 and a luggage compartment with a volume of 450 to 1450 liters will please you.
Countryman S ALL4 is a universal tool for the city, for long trips and trips off paved roads. The key to versatility is a chassis consisting of a McPherson type front axle and a multi-link rear axle. The car has an increased wheelbase, but also a track to maintain a sportier feel. The basic dampers have three adjustment modes, or you can pay extra for a set lowered by 15 mm with variable efficiency.
All-wheel drive controls intelligent torque distribution for the best possible traction. The heart of the system is a two-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with an output of 160 kW and a torque of 360 Nm. The hybrid system with a 48V system makes it easier for it to work at low speeds, so it consumes only 6.8-7.4 liters of fuel per 100 km on average and produces 69 -155 g of CO2.
A novelty in the field of assistance systems is autonomous driving, where up to 60 km/h the driver can take his hands off the steering wheel, but still has to monitor the traffic. The Mini is also capable of changing lanes independently.
The original Mini was a British icon of the 1960s. In the eighties, the production of the original Mini was discontinued, and in 1994, the brand belonging to the Rover Group came under BMW.
In 2001, a new generation appeared in the form of the Mini One and sporty versions of the Cooper.
