BMW has launched the Mini Cooper Countryman D model in India for Rs 25.60 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai). This makes it the first diesel Mini to be introduced in the Indian market and will be brought here via the completely-knocked-down (CKD) route.
Both the models will be powered by a 1.6-litre diesel engine that produces 122PS of power and 270Nm of peak torque. Power will be transmitted to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.
The four door hatchback will be sold in two versions; the Countryman and the Countryman High. While the former is priced at Rs 25.6 lakh, the Countryman high is priced at Rs 28.9 lakh. It is likely that the company has priced the standard car to compete with the Mercedes-Benz A-class and BMW 1 Series while the Countryman High will compete with the BMW X1 in terms of price.
