Since there are no new 2011 Mini Countryman’s available here in the United States we thought we’d dig up a good European preview to wet your appetite. The Countryman is Mini’s first foray into the all-wheel-drive market place, it’s also their first proper 4 door as well, something that is very un-Mini like. One of the best selling points from a consumer perspective was the fact that the Mini was such a compact car. It’s perfect for urban environments yet it still packs all the power and styling necessary for use as an everyday do it all cruiser. I think the car definitely has an appeal to it, I’m just not sure how it’s going to resonate with American buyers. Time will tell I suppose… time will tell.
