The brand-new Mini Cooper Countryman was unveiled in 2011, offering one of the world’s smallest four-door crossover SUVs. It carried over the iconic Mini design, with plenty of oomph to hill-climb and haul limited amounts of luggage. In 2012, a rear bench was offered as a standard feature, and numerous new options were added to an already long list. The popular JCW trim level was added in 2013, which featured an array of performance-tuned add-ons and enhanced engine power. For 2014, the rear bench was made standard, able to seat three, while padded armrests were also added to the doors in the back. Various trims were updated for this year, too. The Countryman would enter 2014 basically unchanged.
