The MINI Countryman's premium price might not reflect its diminutive size, a factor some alternatives don't have to deal with.
The BMW X1 is nearly as compact, but offers more powerful engines--as well as a very small back seat.
Range Rover's Evoque is a bit larger, too, and more expensive, but its design is less quirky and more beautiful, and its luxury is more luxurious.
The Volkswagen Tiguan and Acura RDX might be closer to natural rivalry with the Countryman, but neither offers the personality of the MINI, despite offering more space.
