  • Premium compact SUV poised to shore up market share thanks to unique character, iconic design, outstanding practicality for the city and upgraded equipment throughout the range

MINI New Zealand has introduced the new Countryman to the local market today, with prices for the largest and most versatile member of the MINI range starting from $49,990*.

The popular urban SUV features new aesthetic updates, mechanical upgrades and connectivity improvements while retaining its signature design and hallmark British character in the premium compact segment.

A redesigned radiator grille with MINI’s signature hexagonal contours joins a new front and rear bumper design. LED lighting technology is now a standard feature across the range, and at the rear, new light graphics trace the outline of a Union Jack motif, bringing the new Countryman in line with this distinct identification unique to all MINI models.

Available at launch in four variants, the new MINI Countryman promises practicality and go-kart performance for the everyday urbanite, with up to 1,275 litres of cargo space and up to 225kW of power with ALL4 intelligent all-wheel drive available on selected models.

Environmentally-conscious city dwellers are also given a highly compelling case with the Hybrid Countryman – now featuring a larger 9.6 kWh high voltage battery that endows the small SUV with an electric range of 55 to 61km– more than enough for the average intra-city daily commute.

The range topping John Cooper Works Countryman is also offered in a distilled Pure trim level, promising increased focus on MINI’s famed go-kart driving experience and additional value for the most dedicated MINI fans.

The interior of the new MINI Countryman increases its appeal with a new digital instrument display measuring 5.5 inches, a large 8.8-inch infotainment screen, an expanded suite of MINI Connected features in line with the app and wireless Apple Carplay® integration.

“The arrival of the new MINI Countryman will bolster the strong momentum we’ve enjoyed in New Zealand thus far in 2020,” commented Brett Waudby, General Manager of MINI Australia and New Zealand. “We anticipate strong interest in the new Countryman, a clear favourite in the MINI range, and look forward to delivering signature British charm, go-kart thrills and value-added practicality for our MINI fans.”

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
