2012 MCS Countryman An "Unexpected Family Car"

Carrie Kim writes a review of her family's test drive and use of a 2012 MINI Cooper S Countryman for cars.com's KickingTires blog. Kim writes, in part:
Smaller families shouldn't discount the Countryman because it's a smaller crossover. It can fit a small stroller (if you're still using one); it can transport a reasonable amount of stuff with the backseat folded, and there's extra storage underneath the cargo area floor if you need it.

But I won't lie: The Countryman enabled us to enjoy our time in the car as a family while still feeling connected to the couple we were, pre-kid. For us, that's a magical feeling. Happy parents equal happy kids, right? Well, that's what my husband and I like to tell ourselves anyway.
