It surprises me that the engine is no bigger then the regular cooper s.
But still a car(Crossover I guess) I would love to own.
Can\'t wait to see them arrive at a dealer so I can test drive one.

Here at the MINI Waterloo location we had a fellow mini lover go to the UK and bring us back a full MINI Countryman catalogue.Mind you it does show the full range of engine styles and drivetrains some of which wont be sold here in canada. But what shows here is that the entry level Countryman will have a weight that is almost identical to that of the mini cooper. The MINI One Countrymans\' specs are:In line 4 cyl, max spd of 173kms,0-100kms in 13.9sec, approx tank capacity 47litres, unladen weight of 1340 kg,fuel consumption- Urban 7.4 l/100km-Extra Urban 5.2 l/100km- Combined 6.0 l/100km. All these figures change for each model. If anybody would like to come in and look at the book come on by, and for those who just want to touch and feel the real thing it will be here mid-January. http://www.somc.on.ca/images/fbfiles/images/Countryman.jpg
