MINI has just announced UK pricing for its fourth model, the Countryman. This 4-door MINI is the brand’s first ever crossover and it is available in all wheel drive as well as two wheel drive forms. There are a total of five models and two of them are powered by diesel engines. The base model is the MINI Countryman One which goes for £16,000. This version is powered by a 98hp 1.6 litre 4-pot.
Next up is the MINI Countryman Cooper. The normally-aspirated 1.6 litre engine in this model makes 122hp and carries a £17,510 price tag. The range topping petrol model is the MINI Countryman Cooper S that produces 184hp from its force-inducted engine. The price for this model breaks the £20,000 mark with a £20,810 price tag.
The base diesel model is the MINI Countryman One D. This 90hp model carries a £1,000 premium over the most basic petrol with a £17,000 price tag. The other diesel spot is taken up by the 112hp MINI Countryman Cooper D.
This costs slightly more than the MINI Countryman Cooper at £18,810. The all wheel drive option called the ALL4 is available with the Countryman Cooper D (additional £1,065) and Cooper S (additional £1,220) models while an option for the Cooper will be made available in 2012.
