WHAT'S COMING UP?

Charming, But, Doesn't Appeal To The General Public

Canada's The Globe and Mail  reviews the 2015 MINI Cooper S Countryman and gives this verdict:
Much like the VW Tiguan I reviewed a few weeks ago, the Mini Countryman is priced and packaged not to appeal to the general crossover-shopping public, but to court brand-loyal owners looking to move up to a larger, more capable vehicle.

It’s as charming as a Mini should be, but value-conscious shoppers can expect to be disappointed with the cost-value proposition here, notwithstanding the Countryman’s entertaining drive.
