2011 MINI Countryman S Review - Yes you want to own it, but can you afford to?
It's new? Are you sure? But it doesn't look new. Then again, MINI hasn't
really come up with an original design since the 'new' Cooper debuted in
2001. And even then one could argue it was just a modern interpretation of

2012 Mini Cooper Countryman S Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2012 Mini Cooper
Countryman S. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and
exterior of this car while showing details, overviewing of features, and
noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine
and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under
acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

The new MINI.
• New edition of the premium small car segment original; new MINI with
hallmark emotional design, further optimised balance between driving fun
and fuel consumption, innovative networking technology and clever
functionality; significant advances in the areas of spatial comfort,
safety, equipment, quality of material and finish as well as sporty flair
and ride comfort as the result of consistently and extensively refined
product substance; new model generation now more than ever before the
benchmark for driving fun, premium quality and individual flair within its
• Exterior design refined on an evolutionary basis with hallmark
styling, proportions and body structure; characteristic design features
such as hexagonal radiator grille, headlamps and rear light clusters with
wide chrome surround, turn indicator element and peripheral body surround
in black reinterpreted and given additional emphasis due to the surface
design in each specific area; high-end details underscore the sophisticated
nature of the new model; five exterior paint finishes, roof in contrasting

interior lights and orange-coloured ambient lighting.
• Vehicle length increased by 98 millimetres, width by 44 millimetres,
height by 7 millimetres, also longer wheelbase (+ 28 millimetres) and
larger track width (front + 42 millimetres, rear + 34 millimetres) as
compared to the predecessor model (differential figures relate to MINI
Cooper); optimised spatial comfort on all four seats; new seat design with
larger adjustment range at front and longer seat surface at rear (+ 23
millimetres); more shoulder room and foot space as well as increased
comfort for rear passengers; luggage compartment volume increased by 51

D with 3-cylinder diesel engine (85 kW/116 bhp); 6-speed manual
transmission as standard, with optional 6-speed automatic transmission or
sports automatic transmission, also newly developed; extensive MINIMALISM
technology including automatic engine start/stop function likewise in
conjunction with automatic transmission and optional GREEN mode; improved
driving performance figures and reduced fuel consumption; biggest
efficiency advance in the MINI Cooper with automatic transmission:
acceleration from zero to 100 km/h 2.6 seconds faster, average fuel consumption 27 per cent
lower; lowest fuel consumption and CO2 levels in the MINI Cooper D: 3.5 --
3.6 litres/100 km, 92 -- 95 g/km (EU test cycle figures, dependent on tyre
• Intensification of the typical MINI go-kart feeling with extensively
revised suspension technology, reduced weight and increased rigidity; new

• Variable vehicle set-up using the new Driving Modes option by means of
rotary switch at the base of the gearshift or selector lever; in addition
to the standard setting MID mode, the modes SPORT and GREEN can be
activated; choice of mode influences the characteristic curve of the
accelerator and steering, as well as the shift times of the automatic
transmission and the Dynamic Damper Control where these features are
fitted; GREEN mode in conjunction with automatic transmission enables
coasting with decoupled drivetrain.
