Thriving in Harsh Winter Conditions

Iceland’s challenging winter conditions become the testing ground for the MINI Countryman S ALL4. Navigating two-digit sub-zero temperatures, deep snow-covered routes, and uneven screen tracks, this crossover model proves its off-road prowess. The ALL4 all-wheel drive system, coupled with fast and precise electronic control, seamlessly distributes power between the front and rear wheels, ensuring stability and control in all road and weather conditions.

The increased track width and wheelbase, combined with a customizable chassis, contribute to excellent driving dynamics and enhanced comfort.

Powerful Performance Under the Hood

Beneath the hood, the MINI Countryman S ALL4 boasts a powerful 2.0-liter twin-power turbo engine, delivering a smooth run with an increased output of 160 kW/218 hp and a maximum torque of 360 Nm. Adding to its performance, a 48V mild hybrid engine provides a temporary boost of 14 kW in the low-speed range, enhancing the overall driving experience.

Distinctive Design with John Cooper Works Flair

The John Cooper Works Trim elevates the MINI Countryman S ALL4’s aesthetics with motorsport-inspired elements. The distinctive diffusers, bright Chili Red color, contrasting roof, and high-gloss jet black side mirrors create a powerful and sporty look. The MINI LED headlights with JCW signature contribute to the minimalist design language, emphasizing a clear and distinctive appearance.

Comfortable and Stylish Interior

Inside the MINI Countryman S ALL4, up to five passengers enjoy comfortable seating, with individually adjustable backrests for the three rear seats. The JCW Trim features high-quality synthetic leather seats with red contrasting stitching, providing both a secure grip and comfort. The interior ambiance, characterized by a black and red color scheme, extends to the knitted surfaces of the interior door trim and dashboard.

The panoramic glass roof enhances the bright atmosphere within the cabin. In terms of practicality, the 450-liter trunk offers ample storage, and the flexible rear seat backrest, divided at a ratio of 40:20:40, allows for easy expansion of the luggage compartment to up to 1,450 liters, accommodating even bulky items with ease.

Advanced Driving Assistance and Versatility

On multi-lane roads, the MINI Countryman S ALL4 introduces the Driving Assistant Plus, providing the option of partially automated Level 2 driving for the first time. With this feature, drivers can take their hands off the steering wheel up to a speed of 60 km/h, as long as they closely monitor traffic and remain ready to intervene.
