So last Thursday me and Matt went to the new mini Countryman launch. We always welcome invites for events with free booze here, however this time we were genuinely interested in what changes BMW has made to their “mini” SUV (pun intended) and changes there are lots of.
First of all the big one (again pun intended) is the increase in size by a hefty 8 inches! The larger size together with more ground clearance and the roof rails as standard give it an overall more rugged look. The interior is as lush as BMW can deliver, with cool moodligting that changes colour with the driving mode selected. Overall it looks and feels more grown up from the previous version. We will soon be getting our hands on it, so stay tuned for our test drive of this latest offering from Muscats Motors.
