Report: Mini Countryman destined for New York International Auto Show

Though it’s not getting a full redesign, indications are out that Mini may be showing us a mid cycle refresh of their larger Countryman lifted hatchback/crossover. The car may likely still come with its current range of engines including the 121 bhp 1.6 liter four, and the optional 181 horsepower in the S and 218 horsepower in the John Cooper Works.

Currently, the car is offered with a 6 speed automatic or a 6 speed manual and Mini’s ALL4 all wheel drive system is optional, though, in the standard car with an auto, this translates to an 11.9 second journey to 62 miles per hour from rest, but maybe that’s not the point. Currently, there are suggestions that the car will last two more years until being replaced by its successor, which will likely use BMW’s new front wheel drive modular platform as seen on the BMW 2 series Active Tourer. Keep in touch and we’ll let you know when it happens from the floor of the Javits Center in New York City next week.
