MINI Countryman SUV (17 on) - rated 4.1 out of 5

Few cars have upset traditionalists as the MINI Countryman. Why? Many felt it strayed too far from the brand’s original ethos, but the reality is the small crossover segment is a growing one and BMW would be churlish to ignore it. 

At the time of its 2010 launch, the MINI Countryman was the biggest car yet from the brand, although it’s by no means big, taking on cars such as the Audi Q3 at one end of the market to the Fiat 500L at the other. 

To keep the range fresh, in 2015 MINI added a special edition called 'Park Lane' and also a version aimed at company car drivers called 'ALL4 Business'.
