Mini Countryman: new thermal versions

Alongside the 100% electric variants, the new Mini Countryman now benefits from 4 thermal engines with the arrival of the new S ALL4 and D versions.

Presented last September, the third generation of the Mini Countryman has not only grown further, it has also moved to a 100% electric engine, but not only that. Alongside the 2 electric variants, the SUV also offers 4 different thermal engines.

3 petrol engines and one diesel for the Mini Countryman

Little by little, Mini is adding engines to its new SUV. First presented in a 100% electric variant, the manufacturer then unveiled the sporty John Cooper Works variant. Equipped with a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, the latter distributes its 221 kW (300 hp) and 400 Nm of torque across its 4 wheels to reach 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds. Its top speed is set at 250 km/h while its price starts from €57,000 in France. At the other end of the spectrum, we find the “C” version priced from €46,280. Its 1.5 liter 3-cylinder, 125 kW (170 hp) and 280 Nm of torque allows it to claim a 0 to 100 km/h timed in 8.3 seconds as well as a top speed of 212 km/h. Today, two new thermal variants are expanding its catalog, starting with the S ALL4. Located between the first two, its 4-cylinder turbo petrol with 48 V mild hybridization develops 160 kW/218 hp and 360 Nm of torque. Enough to reach 100 km/h in 7.1 s for a starting price set at €52,430. Mini has also finally added a diesel to the range of engines for its Countryman! It is also a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with mild hybridization, but producing only 120 kW (163 hp). Priced from €49,430 once equipped with this diesel unit, the Countryman D goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.5 seconds.

2 electric Mini Countryman

Obviously, alongside all these new thermal engines, theThe Mini Countryman also exists in several 100% electric versions. Twin of the BMW iX1, but also of the more recently unveiled iX2, the Mini SUV is currently offered in 2 battery derivatives. At the entry level, we find the “E” variant and its single front motor of 150 kW (204 hp) and 250 Nm. It claims a 0 to 100 km/h timed in 8.6 seconds as well as a maximum autonomy of 462 km. Everything is displayed at a starting price of €50,070. The two engines of the SE ALL4 version develop a total power of 230 kW (313 hp) and 494 Nm. Enough to reduce the 0 to 100 km/h of the SUV to only 5.6 s, but also to slightly drop its maximum range to 433 km. The starting price of this Countryman SE ALL4 is set at €55,570 in France. Note that these two 100 electric variants have the same 66.5 kWh battery as well as the same maximum charging power of 130 kW. Combine the two and the SUV Mini can go from 10 to 80 percent battery level in about half an hour when plugged into a fast charger, which is still reasonable. It must be said that Countryman is still based on a 400 V architecture also capable of housing thermal engines.

The new engines have not finished arriving under the hood of the Countryman. Eh yes, from the launch of its new model, Mini directly announced the color: in addition to electric, gasoline and diesel engines, its SUV will also be available in plug-in hybrid versions. Derivatives about which we have not yet had the slightest technical precision, although we assume that they will be identical to the X1 xDrive25e and xDrive30e. So this isn’t the last time we’ll talk to you about the Mini Countryman…
