A revised version of the Mini Countryman has been revealed, complete with a subtle new look and improved fuel economy.
All-wheel-drive versions are the biggest beneficiaries of the styling changes, with flared side sills and revised front and rear bumpers hinting at the car’s more rugged nature. A more prominent hexagonal grille also lends extra presence to the new model.
The Cooper S model gets a small increase in power, from 182bhp to 188bhp, while CO2 emissions are down and economy is improved across the range, with all engines now meeting the latest Euro 6 emissions standards. Elsewhere, new paint choices are also available, alongside new alloy wheel designs and LED fog lights.
The new Countryman range is set to reach the UK this summer after its debut at this week’s New York motor show. The Paceman is also expected to get the same changes.
Mini says the Countryman is "an important pillar of growth" for the brand, with global sales of more than 350,000 units.
