2011 MINI Cooper Countryman Overview

The 2011 Cooper Countryman breaks the mold as a Mini that can actually handle family duty. It has a standard center rail storage system that’s good for tucking away odds and ends, a comfortable back seat and good cargo space compared with other used small cars. Keep in mind, though, that the Cooper Countryman only has four seats.

The Cooper Countryman also stays true to the Mini brand with retro styling and good fuel economy ratings. Reviewers said that while the Countryman isn’t as quick as the 2011 Mini Cooper, it’s still engaging to drive. If you’re looking for more performance, look for the turbocharged S Countryman, which offers a more powerful engine and is available with all-wheel drive.

The Cooper Countryman comes with air conditioning, steering-wheel mounted audio and cruise controls, a six-speaker stereo and satellite radio. Navigation, Bluetooth and a USB port were optional. The Cooper Countryman’s standard safety features are typical for the class, and it received top safety scores.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2011 Volkswagen GTI is one of the most fun-to-drive cars in the class, but it’s also a fuel-efficient and utilitarian hatchback with comfortable back seats and good cargo space. The GTI also has one of the most well-made and well-equipped cabins in the class. It also does well in crash tests, and when it was new, reviewers appreciated the GTI’s comfortable front and rear seats.

Like the Countryman, the 2011 Nissan Juke is also available with all-wheel drive. You’ll give up some of the Countryman’s interior space with the Juke, but reviewers were impressed with its quick steering and eager engine. The Juke also has good safety scores, as well as an attractive interior design and comfortable front seats.
