autobytel Reviews The 2012 MCS Countryman ALL4

James Hamel, writing for autobytel, extensively reviews the car and concludes, after a test drive:
We say the 2012 Mini Countryman is a fine fit for anyone out there looking for a pretty darn practical yet ridiculously engaging to drive compact SUV.  So whether you are a “Single Lady” waiting for someone to “Put a Ring on it” or truly are a “Macho Man” there is no reason why you wouldn’t love having a Countryman parked in your driveway.
Any caveats? None really except the fact that our built in Mini sunglass holder couldn’t hold our oversize aviator style super trendy Southern California sunglasses. Maybe Mini should look into a “Super Size” sunglass holder for those of us with “Super Size” heads. Other than that, no problems for us during our week with the 2012 Cooper S Countryman with All4 Drive and we couldn’t be happier to report that this “Mini” lived well up to our “Maxi” expectations.
