The front-drive versions of the 2020 Countryman S and 2020 Clubman S. Mini, both have an Iconic Trim package that costs $8,000. It includes adaptive dampers, a panoramic sunroof, power-folding exterior mirrors, and a Harman/Kardon stereo system. There’s also a touchscreen Navigation package included, which has in-dash navigation, Apple CarPlay, and a wireless smartphone charging pad.
For both models, there’s also a Driver-Assistance package for $850 that adds parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, and a self-parking feature. Car and Driver is not a fan of this package, and says it’s basically paying “extra for unneeded nannies.”
The interior of both models features an “arcade-like” design with many shapes, materials, and lighting that is common with the Mini brand. There’s more passenger space in the Countryman, especially in the rear seat, and that model also has wider rear-door openings—important for those who want a car where it’s easier to install a car seat.
How do the vehicles drive?
Both 2020 models are powered by a 189-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Car and Driver noted that on a test track, the Clubman, which is 185 pounds lighter, outsprinted the Countryman. In fact, the Clubman hit 60 mph in 6.4 seconds, while it took the Countryman 6.8 seconds to get there—still pretty impressive for the small luxury SUV category.
Both models are relatively fuel-efficient. In Car and Driver’s 200-mile highway fuel economy test, the Countryman matched its 32 mpg EPA highway rating, while the Clubman returned 36 mpg.
