2016 and a new MINI Countryman on the road: the alternative MINI to SUV premium

In 2015, we have seen a MINI ready to enter the segment of the compact of the hand of a new generation of the MINI Clubman, but what awaits you at MINI in 2016? it Seems that the main launch of the brand will be the new generation of the MINI Countryman, the SUV MINI.

Currently, the range of the MINI Countryman starts at 19.750 euros, reaching more than 38,000 euros in the case of the version JCW.

This new MINI Countryman come, you will meet the forecasts, during the second half of the year, possibly with a debut before the spotlight, before the public, in the next Paris. Auto Express is responsible to warn us of this.

it Is easy to imagine the formula under which it will give shape to this alternative, the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and Mercedes GLA. Will be developed on the already well-known new platform on which it is articulating not only the new range of MINI -, but also models like the BMW X1 or the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer and therefore we can expect a range of engines couple to the rest of the MINI family.

Recall that the range of MINI account is currently in gasoline options 102, 136 and 192 horses (leaving to one side the JCW), while in diesel, we find a 116 horses, an alternative 150 hp and another of 190 horses, the Cooper SD.

we Can expect dimensions slightly larger, a conservative design, best livability and versions of the all-wheel drive, but we will have to keep waiting for more details.

in Addition we should also not download a hybrid version plug-in. A few months ago we hunted a testing version with a mechanical hybrid, something that has a lot of logic if we look at some of the latest additions to the range of BMW.
