MINI of Peabody is proud to raise the curtain on the 2011 MINI Countryman, the first-ever four-door, not-quite-so-mini MINI Cooper, which is set to make its debut this January.
Currently MINI of Peabody is taking pre-orders from Boston MINI shoppers for the all-new Countryman.
MINI Countryman Boston
The Countryman’s four doors open onto the biggest MINI Cooper in production, with plenty of space for passengers in the front and back leatherette bucket seats and 41.3 cubic feet of cargo space, which is easily accessed with the Countryman’s “open-wide” tailgate. An available and no-cost option is a bench seat in the back, which allows the Countryman to seat five in total.
No surprises here, but the Countryman is built for performance with an efficient 1.6-liter, 16-valve engine with 121 horsepower beneath its hood. That engine is mated with a standard Getrag 6-speed manual transmission or an available 6-speed Aisin automatic.
The Countryman delivers fuel economy one would expect from a MINI at 35 mpg on the highway, 27 mpg in the city and 31 mpg combined. But drivers shouldn’t be fooled. This MINI Cooper can move with the best of them, especially in standard Sport Mode. At the push of a button, settings within the Countryman adjust to offer more rapid acceleration response and tighter steering.
The MINI Countryman is packed full of added standard and available features. The ride is even more enjoyable with a six-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system playing SIRIUS Satellite Radio during a free 1-year subscription. Getting in and driving off are both made easier with remote entry and a start/stop button.
As with every new MINI, the Countryman also includes peace of mind with its warranty, maintenance and roadside assistance plans, all of which come standard. Customer assurance begins with a 4-year, / 50,000-mile New Passenger Car Limited Warranty and keeps on coming with No Cost, Boot-to-Bonnet Maintenance, which means free oil changes, fluid services, filter replacement, brake pads, and rotor replacements.
Change is coming with the MINI Countryman. Big change.
