MINI Countryman gets mid-life facelift

Published 28 May 2020

The MINI Countryman gets new looks and upgraded interior tech for 2020. Prices start at £23,500 and order books are open now. 

MINI's biggest MINI gets a few design tweaks for 2020, including new LED headlights and front fog lights as standard. LED Union Jack rear lights are also added to the mix, along with a new grille,  alloy wheels and more colours to choose from. The eight-speed automatic gearbox is now standard on all-wheel drive 'All4' versions of the Cooper and Cooper D, too.

There are no new engines in the range, but MINI says made the existing ones cleaner with the addition of particulate filters on petrol models and AdBlue on diesels. That means your options are still the three-cylinder petrol in the Countryman Cooper, the four-cylinder petrol in the Cooper S, the four-cylinder Cooper D diesel or the Plug-In Hybrid.

The Volkswagen T-Roc and Audi Q2 rival now gets a 5-inch digital dash as standard, while those who opt for Navigation packs also get an 8.8-inch, circular touchscreen - as seen on the MINI Electric.

The standard media system now features Bluetooth as standard, plus an Amazon Alexa voice assistant thanks to an integrated sim card. This allows drivers to control Amazon devices in their homes - like turning up the heating - as well as getting things like weather reports or updating your reminders on the go.

Two new leather upholstery choices are also available, as is a new MINI Yours interior style package. The flagship Cooper S and plug-in hybrid S E All4 models feature additional piano black interior trim, too. In more pesonalisation news, the Light White, Melting Silver and Chestnut paints have also been removed from the range and replaced with  Sage Green and White Silver colours.

The revised Countryman is priced from £23,500 and is available to order now.

A mild refresh of a model these days is usually accompanied by a huge price hike - but it looks like the new lights and screen is 'only' commanding a hike of £900 on the entry level model.

Maybe Mini's were too expensive in the first place...….
