Mini Countryman

Now this is an interesting car coming from Mini, I have always been a fan of the Mini Cooper but now they have come out with the buggy version which is a little bigger but still compact. The name should have been something else, I think they wanted to stick the Mini in there but they should have came up with something different, Mini Cup, Mini Corner, Mini Courage, maybe something else then Countryman. I love the manual Minis, it feels like these little machines are going to take off and the speed dial in the middle is fantastic.

Its available with two engine versions the normal and the S, 122 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque in the Cooper, or 184 hp and 177 lb-ft in the Cooper S. Then there is that all wheel drive option which I would opt out for it since its more fun as a two wheel drive machine, I always have this image of a mini drifting. This four seater even has a very cool and comfortable looking interior.
