Rivervale Compare the New MINI Countryman and MINI Clubman

Rivervale Compare the New MINI Countryman and MINI Clubman

The MINI name was taken over by BMW in 2000, who retained some of the iconic Mini features from the 1960’s and added in a whole load of technology to bring the MINI into the new century. The result is a retro feeling car with plenty of personality and all the modern-day features in a car we have all grown to love.

The MINI range has been steadily expanding over the years, meaning there is a MINI to meet any driver’s needs. Our Account Manager Rob looked at the New MINI Countryman and MINI Clubman to see how they compare.

The 2017 countryman is the biggest MINI to date, providing a family SUV and an alternative to the Nissan Qashqai and Ford Kuga. The MINI Clubman provide a car about town with compact proportions perfect for little parking spaces, whilst still seating 5 adults comfortably.

Rivervale Review the MINI Cooper

Outside of the Trim level choices there is a wealth of packs to add on such as the media pack or MINI tech pack to make your MINI exactly what you need. You can tailor your MINI to your own requirements even further by adding optional extras such as Head-Up Display, Park Assist, Reversing Camera, or Heated Front Windscreen.
