New MINI Countryman S ALL4 in Sport Trim

The MINI Countryman S ALL4 in JCW Trim

In Iceland, the largest and most versatile MINI impresses in extreme winter conditions off the beaten track. With its modern all-wheel drive, the MINI Countryman S ALL4 guarantees brand-typical driving fun on any terrain. With its noticeable increase in traction, safety and agility, the comfortable crossover model is ready for all adventures.

Two-digit sub-zero temperatures, deep snow-covered routes and uneven scree tracks promise real challenges. In the midst of Iceland’s breathtaking nature, the new MINI Countryman S ALL4 can prove its off-road qualities. In the Sport Trim with a bright chili red body color and a shiny black contrasting roof in jet black, the grown crossover model already exudes a visually superior presence.

Outdoor fans will experience the wild side of the largest volcanic island in the world, especially off the big roads. In winter on Iceland, rough terrain, snow-covered scree tracks and icy climbs challenge the precise driving qualities of the MINI Countryman S ALL4. The ALL4 all-wheel drive system supports the driver in all road and weather conditions. The fast and precise electronic control system distributes the drive power between the front and rear wheels as needed.

In combination with the slightly increased track width and the increased wheelbase, the model offers excellent driving dynamics with increased comfort. The chassis can be adjusted differently depending on the surface and environment. A well-balanced and comfortably adjusted suspension is ideal for exploring the Icelandic crater landscape. On solid roads and in city traffic, however, the MINI Countryman S ALL4 is particularly agile with its direct steering and sporty-tuned chassis.

The powerful 2.0 liter twin power turbo engine impresses on Iceland’s long, straight roads with smooth running, increased output to 160 kW/218 hp and maximum torque of 360 Nm. In addition, a 48V mild hybrid engine supports the performance of the MINI Countryman S ALL4 (combined fuel consumption: 7.4 — 6.8 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 169 — 155 g/km in accordance with WLTP) in the low speed range through a temporary boost of 14 kW. *

The Sport Trim gives the MINI Countryman S ALL4 an individual motorsport look with distinctive diffusers at the front and rear. In Sport Trim, the bright Chili Red color and the characteristic contrasting roof and high-gloss jet black side mirrors give the body a powerful appearance. In keeping with this, the MINI LED headlights with the selected John Cooper Works signature only show two horizontal stripes as daytime running lights and accentuate the minimalist design language.

The John Cooper Works logo features clear outlines and the typical red-white-black color scheme on the octagonal front grille. In this new look, the logo also adorns the distinctive C-pillar, which connects flush with the stretched vehicle roof. Vertical rear lights underline the upright and sporty position of the MINI Countryman S ALL4. For the new model, light-alloy wheels are available in various designs and sizes ranging from 17 to 21 inches.

The MINI Countryman S ALL4 offers up to five passengers comfortable space in all seats. The backrest of the three rear seats is individually adjustable in six positions. The back seat, which can be moved up to 13 cm, provides either additional legroom or even more cargo space. The bright atmosphere in the interior is further reinforced by the panoramic glass roof. In the Sport Trim, equipment-specific seats made of high-quality synthetic leather with red contrasting stitching provide a secure grip and at the same time offer the right level of comfort. The black and red color scheme of the vehicle trim continues on the knitted surfaces of the interior door trim and dashboard.

Luggage can be easily stored in the 450-liter trunk. The rear seat backrest, which can be flexibly divided at a ratio of 40:20:40, allows the luggage compartment to be expanded to up to 1,450 liters as required. This means that even bulky objects can be easily transported when the back seat is completely folded.

On multi-lane roads, Driving Assistant Plus adds the option of partially automated Level 2 driving to the MINI Countryman for the first time. This allows the driver to take his hands off the steering wheel up to a speed of 37 mph, provided that he continues to closely monitor the traffic and remains ready to intervene at any time.
