Take in a city view with a difference
The new MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid is an even more efficient way to explore the UK's towns and cities, with up to 26 miles of rechargeable all-electric range and CO2 emissions as low as 39g/km. And don’t think hybrid means less fun. With 217bhp, near-instant electric punch from 284lb ft of torque and a hybrid-specific all-wheel-drive for added grip, you have punchy 0-62mph performance of 6.8 seconds.
As a spacious, family-friendly SUV, the new MINI Countryman also gives you a commanding view of a city’s streets. But to get the very best vistas, you need to head even higher.
London is packed with amazing ways to see the city from above – ranging from iconic landmarks such as the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral and Tower Bridge to skyscrapers such as The Shard and the Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street.
