Finally, the iconic Mini Cooper Countryman is launched in India with a starting price of Rs. 25.60 lakh. You might wonder that this is not the first time that a Mini Cooper is launched in the country. Yes, but this time around the German automaker BMW Group has brought this vehicle with diesel engine option. This makes the all new Mini as the first ever Mini to host a diesel engine. This time around the vehicle is brought to India as a CKD unit and it will be assembled at the BMW's Chennai based manufacturing facility.

There is already the petrol variant of the Mini is being sold in India and now with the introduction of diesel variant, Mini's India portfolio has got increased. This new vehicle however, is not as powerful as its petrol version but it is surely a target to the Indian car enthusiasts. The all new Mini Cooper D Countryman sports a powerful 1.6 litre diesel beast that has the capability of producing 112Bhp of maximum power and 270Nm of peak torque at 1750Rpm. Its engine is paired with a 7 speed automatic transmission gearbox and it enables the car to produce 16.6Kmpl of maximum mileage.

The company has made a wise move by introducing the vehicle through CKD route, which would bring down the price. Perhaps it is the only vehicle that is competing with itself in the Indian domestic markets. However, it could face challenges from the upcoming Mercedes Benz A class hatch in the domestic markets but Mini has the edge over rest of the models. Although, it is small and compact, it offers comfortable seating space for about 4 people inside while providing lavish comfort and convenience features. The all new Mini Cooper countryman features some of the most advanced and innovative features such as automatic stability control tranction control, anti lock braking system with electronic brakeforce distribution.

If it comes to the discussion about the appearance and style of the car, the new Mini has got the iconic looks. It comes with the same classy and sporty body design that has caught the attention of many individuals. By looking at the Mini Cooper Countryman pictures provided in the official portal, the car has got a stunning front fascia while the rear part looks to be very sporty. You can also notice that there is a lot of chrome finishing at the front that gives a premium feel. The front chrome grill brings the aggressive look to the front while with tail lamps bring the sportier appearance at the rear. The overall look of the vehicle is far more than impressive.
