    Its Not An Older Mans Car In My Opinion. — I like the the looks and features of this car. I dont like that I have to put mid grade or higher fuel in the tank and the tank size is too small. Its only a 12 gal tank. It runs out too fast.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I like the turbo for passing and the handling is great for curves.

    Cons: Very noisy inside and ruff riding.

    New On Here Soon With All The Same Features Sums It Up. — The fuel economy surprised me but did get less when I drove it over the wife. Handles great in all conditions for a suv. The xenon lights and navigation well worth the extra money. Overall sound car for the money and the service from Motor City Mini was excellent.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: My wife loves everything about this car and has a 2015 on order with all the same options but in green with black wheels and added adaptive lights.

    Cons: It is hard to keep your foot out of the gas pedal; too fun to drive.

    A Great Car If You Need A Small Suv — Overall I've been very happy with the Mini Countryman S. The gas mileage is better than I expected and it is a very functional car. I love the body style and actually get comments about how cool it looks regularly.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: This car is fun to drive and gets great gas mileage. I use it to commute two days a week and the rear cargo area is perfect. I like the rear bucket seats which gives the car a different interior than most cars this size.

    Cons: My wife has a Mini Cooper S and it is much peppier and because of the weight it's not quite as nimble.

    Versatile, Great For Trips Or Camping — Overall our experience from financing to owning this MINI Countryman has been positive. Any questions or concerns we've had have always been handled in a professional and timely manner. It handles terrifically, and I feel safe having my wife driving this. It's crash ratings are terrific and MINI has held the HIGHEST resale value on all of its models year after year.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: This car is super stable, handles terrifically, looks aggressive and stylish, and is safe and comfortable..like a Sports/Family car.

    Cons: Not great on ice, but I don't know a car that is.

    Great Car. Lots Of Room. — The car has plenty of room for four adults. Handles like a sports car with plenty of power. Gas mileage averages in the low 30s. Comfortable leather seats with climate control and great lumbar support. BMW reliability without the price.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good on gas. Fast. Handles like a sports car.

    Cons: Price

    Good Commute Car. — Not a smooth ride with the run flat tires, cheaper interior materials, no universal garage opener and navigation system could be more interactive. Love the all wheel drive and the power it has. The mini is a perfect first car for the younger generation buyer.

    Pros: Looks, gas mileage, all wheel,drive.

    Cons: Fit and finish.

    Mini Countryman — it's an ok car. Nothing good, nothing bad. It's not a mini anymore which is why I wouldn't recomment this car to a friend. otherwise, it's ok if you want a mini and you have some kids. Otherwise, go for the real one
