BMW-owned British automobile brand MINI, which has unveiled its all-new MINI Countryman at the Auto Expo 2018, has finally launched the SUV in India. To be pitted against other luxury SUVs in the market such as the Mercedes-Benz GLA, the Audi Q3 and the BMW X1, the second-generation Mini Countryman is priced from Rs 34.90 lakh (ex-showroom, India) onwards with deliveries beginning from June 2018 onwards. Locally-produced at BMW Group Plant Chennai, it will be available in three variants: two petrol variants - Cooper S (Rs 34.90 lakh) and Cooper S JCW Inspired (Rs 41.40 lakh) as well as one diesel variant i.e. Cooper SD (Rs 37.40 lakh).

Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India said, “The all-new MINI Countryman is built for adventure and an ideal companion for city trips to country getaways and long journeys. The second generation of the MINI Countryman represents a more distinctive and mature proposition of an ultimate all-rounder with ample space for you and your family. It is a perfect fit for an urban environment offering unique driving comfort, refined interiors, and clever functionality. Every road marks the beginning of a new chapter; whether it's a winding country road or the bustle of the city, now you can truly unleash your inner adventurer.”

The all-new MINI Countryman will be available in five colours: Island Blue, Light White, Chilli Red, Melting Silver and Thunder Grey, as well as British Racing Green offered exclusively for the MINI Countryman Cooper S JCW Inspired. It will be available with Leatherette Carbon Black as standard upholstery and Leather Cross Punch Carbon Black for the all-new MINI Countryman Cooper S JCW Inspired. Exterior features of the all-new MINI Countryman like contrasting roof, upright rear lights, hexagonal radiator grille and large headlamps have undergone development.
