Mini managed to build 250.000 Countryman


This week was a very important one for MINI as it managed to reach a great production milestone by finishing the 250.000th Countryman. The model rolled off the assembly line at production and development partner Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria. The carmaker started selling the Mini Countryman two and a half years ago and continues to have a lot of success thanks to its style and driving fun and also because it has a persuasive allure in the compact premium segment. The well-known MINI Countryman follows the start of MINI Paceman production. The 7th model in the lineup of the brand was also built in Graz, Austria.



In case you did not know, the Countryman is the first model in more than 50 years of the brand to sport four doors, a large tailgate, up to five seats and also a variable-use load compartment offering between 350 and 1.170 liters of space. The model is perfect for the ones looking foe extra functionality and a balance of agility and driving comfort that comes into its own over longer journeys. This is also the first MINI to be available with an option like the ALL4 all-wheel drive system. Now, this can be ordered as an option for the MINI Cooper S Countryman capable of generating 184 horsepower, for the MINI Cooper SD Countryman capable of producing 143 horsepower and also on the MINI Cooper D Countryman that has 112horsepower as output. All versions, except the MINI D Countryman can be equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission as an alternative to the standard 6-speed manual. The clear success of the model is reflected with no doubt in the sales figures in all the major markets. Just for information, last year alone, MINI managed to sell a total of 102.250 units.
