Mini USA released the pricing of the all-new 2017 Countryman which is set to go on sale in March 2017.
The new Mini Countryman kicks off at $26,100 MSRP for the entry-level Cooper version which is powered by the brand’s turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol unit with 134hp and 162lb-ft (220Nm) of peak torque. Customers wanting some extra grip should go for the Cooper ALL4 version that’s priced at $28,100 MSRP.
Mini USA says that the new 2017 Countryman is the best-equipped model ever sold, with each version coming standard with features like a Panorama Sunroof, Sensatec Leatherette Upholstery, keyless entry, MINI Connected infotainment system with 6.5-inch high-resolution display, Rear View Camera, parking sensors, Bluetooth, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers and more. ALL4 versions also get heated seats as standard.
Cooper S models start at $29,100 MSRP for the 2WD and $31,100 MSRP for the ALL4 versions. Power in this instance comes from the turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol which produces 189hp and 206lb-ft (280Nm) of peak torque.
“The MINI Countryman has been a top selling model since it was first introduced in 2010 and we expect this new generation will be even more popular with existing owners, while also attracting new customers to the brand,” said Thomas Felbermair, Vice President MINI of the Americas.
The new generation will also be the first one to get a plug-in hybrid variant in the form of the Cooper SE, which is set for launch in the US market in June 2017.
