2021 Mini Countryman Spotted Parading Its Minor Updates On Public Roads

The facelifted Mini Countryman has been spotted again during testing on the streets of Munich, giving us a better look at the styling updates it will adopt.

Launched in 2010, Mini’s first crossover badly needs a makeover that will align it with the rest of the much younger lineup. The overhaul will include revised headlights and taillights, with the latter gaining the “Union Jack” design just like the facelifted Mini Hatch and Convertible.

The headlamps adopt new graphics as well, with adaptive matrix-beam LED headlights expected to be offered as an option. Lights aside, the facelifted Mini Countryman will also feature redesigned bumpers and a refreshed grille, which in the case of the Cooper S Countryman model will feature a honeycomb insert.

The sporty model will also sport a more aggressive bumper with additional air intakes flanking the fog lamps. Other exterior updates for the entire facelifted Countryman lineup will include new alloys, a revised color palette, as well as the new two-dimensional Mini logos.

The updates made to the interior will be equally subtle, with the facelifted Mini Countryman expected to gain a bigger infotainment screen, improved connectivity, as well as more personalization options.

The engine lineup will likely carry over and will include four gasoline units, three diesels, and a plug-in hybrid. They will range from the base 102 HP (103 PS) 1.5-liter three-cylinder gasoline unit in the Countryman One to a 302 HP (306 PS) 2.0-liter turbo-four in the recently-launched John Cooper Works performance model.

The Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 plug-in hybrid should also remain unchanged as Mini updated it recently with a larger 9.6-kWh battery pack. As before, the Cooper, Cooper S, Cooper D, and Cooper SD models will offer optional AWD, while the JCW will get it as standard. The facelifted Mini Countryman will reportedly debut in mid-2020 as a 2021 model.

    The First Generation Of The Countryman Is Personally My Favorite.
    The first generation, very close to the original concept that inspired it, was very much (in my personal opinion) a finely designed automobile from the Mini Marque.


    The Second Generation seemed to take a step in a separate direction from the first, although seemingly with this facelift, some design cues from the original are being Brought back to the vehicle.

    Whilst the first generation was (and is) special in its’ own right, I am looking forward to this upcoming vehicle as it is a most welcomed improvement to the current vehicle.

    It should have more standard equipment instead of charging customers for everything. Mini needs to catch up with the modern world and offer blindside warning.
