The new MINI Countryman 2017 is more and more near. The development of the second generation of the model more country that are in the range of MINI-is nearly complete. And proof of this are these latest spy photos that we’ve managed to take during a test session of the new Countryman, which recently went out to “take a step” in Germany.

There are few occasions in the last half year in that we’ve managed to hunt down the new MINI Countryman 2017 during a testing session. Thanks to this, we have been able to meet with all luxury of details the development of the new generation that, as we well know, will come loaded up to the top of what’s new in all aspects. From an aesthetic level with a renewed image to the (technology going by the mechanic.

In the first case, and speaking of the new image that premiere of the MINI Countryman 2017, having been witnesses of the loss of camouflage of the test units that have used MINI throughout these past few months, we realize that there will be notable differences with respect to the MINI 5-Door. Improve your qualities, “off-road” and although it will retain its original essence, we will be at a model image more stylized but seasoned with elements of SUV segment.

For example, to sit in the driving position of the new Contryman we will be able to make use of the new Head-Up Display or MINI Connect that allow us to access social networks, listen to music on the internet, receive traffic information, use applications to the vehicle and much more.

And in the third, what we know of the (mechanical? As is evident, the range will be composed by the relevant versions of access One and One D, but also will be the top of the corresponding range under the banner JCW (John Cooper Works). However, and in addition to the diesel and petrol engines with three and four-cylinder turbocharged, the main novelty in this aspect will be the hybrid variant plug-in (PHEVS).

Will be the first time that MINI debuts a model plug-in hybrid, and although not anticipated to be presented together with the model of the conventional mechanical (since the development has started later), is called to be one of the main attractions of the new Countryman.

¿When will he be presented? In the absence of an official confirmation on the part of MINI, all information points to that the new MINI Countryman will be ready to make her debut in society during the upcoming Paris motor show 2016. And is that, it is one of the models photographed in the last year and taking into account stage of development, it would not be unreasonable to expect to see in the French capital.

Other reports point to a debut at the Geneva motor show 2017 but, the truth is that the timelines do not fit because for the month of march of the next year, the model would already be finished for a long time. In any case, we can and as we say, we can expect his presentation at the Paris Salon 2016 to the end of this month of September. We will be attentive.
