MINI Countryman - Cooper S or Cooper?

I want to buy a MINI Countryman. Can you tell me which model is best - Cooper S or Cooper?

We'd recommend the Cooper. It uses a punchy 1.5-litre petrol engine which is more than adequate for the majority of drivers. The 2.0-litre used in the Cooper S is a bit more powerful but it's not exactly exhilarating.
