Car And Driver Drives The Countryman Prototype

Michael Austin at Car and Driver calls it the "sized for America MINI."  By turning off the 4WD he was able to drift the Countryman like a hatchback but with slower steering and more body roll. He says the ride is more "like your average American: a little bit soft but very affable." Austin feels the Countryman is generally underpowered and smaller than its nearest competition - "the Subaru Forester, Nissan Rogue, Toyota RAV4, and Volkswagen Tiguan."
