Mini has revealed the front-wheel drive variant for the latest Countryman, and while U.S.-specific details haven't been revealed yet, it's expected to sit below the S ALL4 in terms of both pricing and performance.


The Countryman C produces a modest 169 hp and 206 lb-ft of torque from a turbocharged 1.5 liter three-cylinder engine, which is equipped with a mild hybrid system. Power is sent to the front wheels through a dual-clutch automatic transmission, and the 62 mph mark is reached from a standstill in 8.3 seconds. European fuel consumption estimates indicate an impressive U.S. fuel economy rating of around 38 mpg combined, but that number has yet to be confirmed.




Note that the 'C' moniker denotes the powertrain, and is not a single trim level. With that being said, this model is being offered in four different trim levels. At the bottom of the lineup sits the Essential. It has a basic appearance on the outside with small 17-inch wheels and a choice between silver and black exterior colors, but the interior still comes with a large 9.5-inch circular OLED display and same stylish patterns and materials found in more expensive models. The rest of the trim lineup consists of the usual Classic, Favoured, and JCW variants.


Details for the U.S. model haven't been disclosed yet, so for now the cheapest Countryman comes in the form of the $38,900 S ALL4 model. It comes with all-wheel drive as standard, and produces 241 hp from its turbocharged 2.0 liter inline-four engine.
