2017 Mini Countryman Interior and Exterior Design

Based on the spy shots, we could find out that the car was doing the engine test performance and its bodywork was covered with lot of camouflage. This first hint could be the big sign that the car has some refreshments to offer. It is important to note that the car is still identical to the standard model but it has slight changes especially for the front grille and the rear fascia. It is quite possible if the 2017 Mini Countryman has black paint with the white side mirrors and roof. As far as we know that the car might go with the new UKL platform especially for the hybrid variant.

2017 Mini Countryman for the cabin side, it will also get minor revisions. The space would be roomier than before so that the more relaxing cabin could be offered to give higher level of comfort. The cabin is also covered with the camouflage. It means that some details inside the car might get revisions. We think that the speedometer behind the steering wheel will be replaced with the new rev counter and its center is featured with the large round infotainment screen. It is flanked by the air vents in the shape of rectangular and there are some buttons as well as switches. Even it offers you iDrive knob in its center console as the part of the development for 2017 Countryman.

Possible Engine Options

We found no confirmation yet from the official but there are some possible engine options. The hybrid variant might go with the rear axle and it has electric motor from the Li-ion battery to produce 90 horses while the turbocharged inline-three petrol engine 1.5 liter will be added for the front wheel to provide 110 horses so that the total output could be up to 200 horses and 258 lb-ft of torque. The alternative could be inline four-turbo engine 2.0 liter with 136 horses combined with electric motor with 102 horses to deliver the total output about 240 horses and 295 pound-feet of torque. The fuel economy is expected around 40 mpg for 2017 Mini Countryman.
