Four New Small Family Crossovers to Watch

The all-new MINI Countryman made The Family Car Guides list for New Small Family Crossover to watch! :)

The all-new, four-door MINI Countryman debuts for 2011 in three models: Countryman, S Countryman, and S Countryman ALL4. The Countryman features “go-kart handling,” along with seven airbags, “ample cargo space,” and “stellar fuel efficiency.” The base engine is the 121-horsepower, 1.6-liter in-line four-cylinder that achieves an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city/35 mpg highway (manual) and 24/35 mpg (automatic). The Cooper S Countryman and S Countryman ALL4 have a twin-scroll turbocharged engine that makes 181 horsepower; fuel economy is 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway (in the S Countryman ALL4 it’s 25 mpg city/31 mpg highway).

Some call it a wagon, others a small SUV.

Whatever you call it, the 2011 MINI Cooper Countryman has lots of personality, style, performance, and fuel efficiency in a four-passenger package
