    The new MINI Countryman underpins the new BMW X1 but there's a lot that has changed on the car. Visually, the MINI Countryman is 200 mm longer and 30 mm wider than its predecessor, while the wheelbase has been increased by 75 mm. The changes are quite visible from the profile. Up front, the new Countryman is more squarish in its stance, while the familiar 'floating roof', large headlamps and hexagonal radiator grille are all present with subtle changes. The headlamp units differ from other MINI models by having an asymmetric shape, with LED lighting now an option. And at the rear, the vertically arranged light units help create the family 'look'.

    On the Inside, the new MINI Countryman offers extra space, 30 per cent more to be precise, according to the folks at MINI. The increased space gives the passengers more front and rear legroom, front and rear headroom and rear seat shoulder-room than before, which is much more than what its segment competitors have on offer. As far as the features list goes, MINI has added MINI's acclaimed Satellite Navigation System, Bluetooth, Cruise Control, Emergency E-call and Active Guard among others. Moreover, the company is also offering the owners a chance to personalize their new Countryman, with extensive colour and trim options, advanced technology features and a range of option packs. One such option is a new 8.8-inch touchscreen display as part of the MINI Navigation System XL, offering touchscreen multimedia and navigation control for the first time in a MINI.
