The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 MINI Countryman puts the brand's fun-to-drive spirit into the body of a versatile compact crossover. The 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan offers just about everything a compact crossover should, though its a little conservative in style and feel.
