Spacious Cabin & Cargo Area

The 2018 MINI Cooper Countryman is very spacious, seating five easily. In fact, the following interior dimensions show how much stretching room everyone on board will have:

  • Front headroom: 39.9 inches
  • Front legroom: 40.4 inches
  • Rear headroom: 37.5 inches
  • Rear legroom: 37.6 inches

Not only is the cabin roomy, but the cargo area is, too. You get 17.6 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats. Fold that second row down, and the space expands to 47.6 cubic feet. Plus, loading items into the Countryman is easy, even when your hands are full of items. That’s because the vehicle offers a Comfort Access/Power Tailgate. Simply have the key fob in your purse or pocket, and lift your foot under the rear bumper. The liftgate will then open, and you can start packing your belongings inside.

Interior Design & Amenities

The 2018 Countryman has a stylish and well-built interior, with lots of high-end materials throughout. For example, it has five high-end leather upholstery options like Chesterfield Leather with diamond-pattern stitching. A dual-pane panoramic sunroof comes standard, which extends to the back seat. This way, everyone on board can enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. Heated, sport front seats are available, so you can stay comfy and cozy on chilly nights. Eight-way power-adjustable front seats are available, too, with memory settings. Not only can you save your seating and mirror positions, but you can easily trade off driving duties, with just the push of a button. And, if you want to have an impromptu tailgating party, or you just want to stop and enjoy the view, the MINI Cooper makes it easy to do so. That’s because it has an available Picnic Cushion. This plush seat folds easily into the boot of the car, so you can be comfy when relaxing outside with friends or family.

High-Tech Features

If you like your technology, then you’ll enjoy being inside the MINI Cooper Countryman. It offers lot of high-tech features to help keep you connected, entertained, and safe. For example, it comes standard with Bluetooth® capability, as well as Siri® Eyes Free. This way, you can easily stream audio or make phone calls using basic voice commands. The vehicle also offers Apple CarPlay™ smartphone integration. Once you plug your phone into the car’s USB port, your favorite apps will appear on the 8.8-inch touchscreen. You can then listen to podcasts, send text message, pull up directions, and more, without needing to mess around with your phone. As far as safety goes, the Countryman offers lots of driver-assisting technologies to help prevent an accident from occurring. One such feature is Active Driving Assistant, which includes Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking. It can detect if a collision is likely with a car in front of you and will send visual and audible alerts for you to act fast. If you don’t react in time, the system can apply the brakes for you.
