Mini Countryman Cooper – Variants and Facts About the SUV

Both the standard Countryman Cooper S and the JCW Inspired variant gets a revised nose with the new bumpers and slightly tweaked black mesh grille that is bordered by the unique LED-powered bug-eyed headlamps.

In the back, the bumper is new too with the tail-lamps getting Mini’s trademark Union Jack LED motif. Other exterior highlights of the 2021 Mini Countryman include fog lights, a contrast black roof, silver roof rails, 17-inch alloy wheels and an integrated spoiler.

The JCW Inspired variant gets a more athletic look compared to the regular Countryman with sportier bumpers, a rear spoiler and larger 18-inch wheels compared to the standard car’s 17-inches. Its aggressively designed bumpers and the flared wheel arches give it a peculiar character that stands out from the crowd.

The upgraded cabin retains its charm with traditional MINI elements and the retro looks with sturdy toggle switches in the middle of the dashboard. Soft materials, leathers used in the upholstery, and even the excellent finish of the air vents prove that the car has been designed with an excellent eye for detail and appreciation.
