eBay Motors Blog Reviews The 2012 MCS Countryman ALL4

eBay Motors Blog blogger Alex Kramer reviews the 2012 MINI Cooper S Countryman ALL4.  Kramer provides a photo gallery and these pros and cons:


Pros:
  • MINI’s trademark go-kart-like handling is still there
  • Gutsy little turbo engine is up to the task of hauling this bigger MINI around
  • All-wheel drive makes for foolproof all weather performance
  • Unmistakable MINI styling, in a larger size
Cons:
  • MINI’s retro interior styling is an acquired taste
  • Interior plastics seem awfully cheap for an almost $30k car
  • For a larger MINI, the trunk is still quite small and impractical
  • Price with options easily escalates into large car territory
