Mini's first crossover model arrived in 2011 bearing the Countryman
name. If any vehicle puts the "sport" in a subcompact sport utility vehicle, this is it. A JCW variant turns this car into a British bulldog on wheels, with speed and handling uncommon in a small utility. In 2019, the Countryman became Mini's first hybrid, offering a plug-in powertrain. The Countryman is not inexpensive, but it's a practical vehicle that suits a variety of lifestyles.
