Mini Countryman production commences in India

-    Mini has started local production of the all-new Countryman at BMW’s Chennai plant. 

-    The all-new Countryman was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo.

-    Launched in India for Rs 34.90 lakhs, it is available across three trims.

Mini India has commenced the local production of the all-new Countryman at their Chennai facility. First showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo, the Countryman was launched in the country earlier this month for the price of Rs 34.90 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). 

The Countryman is in its second generation now and is the high-riding model in Mini’s range. It retains its original design but has grown in dimension. The compact crossover measures 20mm longer, 30mm wider and has a 75mm longer wheelbase than its predecessor. The ‘Bulldog’ style grille is flanked by bulbous LED headlamps. The distinct styling extends to the rear with Mini’s signature tail lamps and a flat roofline. Being a crossover, there is ample amount of cladding all around the car along with roof rails and skid plates on both the bumpers. 

The cabin is typical Mini and has the unmistakable circular infotainment dial dominating the centre console. It is feature loaded as well, with two-zone climate control, powered tailgate, park assist, electric seats, heads-up display, run-flat tyres and leather upholstery as standard raiment. 

The Countryman can be had with two powertrain options. One is 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol motor with 192bhp of power and 280Nm of torque which powers the Cooper S and S JCW. The second powertrain sits under the hood of the Cooper SD - a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel that puts out 190bhp of power and 400Nm of torque. The eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission comes as standard. 

The Countryman is the British carmaker’s flagship offering which goes up against the entry-level German crossovers like the Mercedes-GLA, Audi Q3 or the BMW X1, although the Mini is slightly cheaper. It can also be a niche alternative to the Volvo V40 Cross Country.
