Large SUVs and crossovers are popular and have their space, place, and time but many people do not want 3 rows of seating or an economically styled cookie-cutter box on wheels. Thank goodness for Mini’s verve! From their two-door models that have been loved for generations to the Clubman and Countryman that offer crossover functionality, spaciousness, and eclipsing Mini style. As many folks are leaving the city for their summer escape this handsome Countryman is perfect for any journey, evidence how good this car looks in this East Hampton driveway.
The John Cooper Works Countryman with its 301 hp. 4-cylinder turbo engine brings outstanding performance to the compact premium segment. The JCW Countryman is such a cruiser with that powerful engine combined with a standard 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission and an ALL4 all-wheel-drive system, will have you thinking rally car every time you get behind the wheel. The shift paddles are mounted as standard on the steering wheel for manual gear selection so running free on the roads is a powerful option… just watch your speed.
That racing sensation has been elevated to new dimensions, which can be enjoyed on all five full-feature seats of the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman. With characteristic interior sports car flair, this car is designed with the John Cooper Works sports seats with integrated headrests, the John Cooper Works sports steering wheel with multifunction buttons and the John Cooper Works selector lever, and the anthracite headliner, all adding to a heightened driving experience.
The crazy-good list of the standard equipment includes LED headlamps, keyless ride, MINI Driving Modes, and the Radio MINI Visual Boost including a 6.5-inch display with touchscreen function and a redesigned graphical display, make it easy to understand that Mini style attractiveness is anything but small. Customize Your John Cooper Works Countryman.
