The Mini Coupe is our go-to example of a car that doesn't feel unsubstantial yet gets great gas mileage. (Smart ForTwo, we're looking in your direction.) The Countryman continues in the same tradition...

MINI promises the Countryman will have the best fuel economy in its class, and according to the EPA's ratings, it's among the most fuel-efficient crossovers available today.
The standard Cooper Countryman and its 120-hp four-cylinder are rated at 27/35 mpg, when the manual gearbox is specified. Opt up to the automatic, and the rating drops to 24/30 mpg.
On the Cooper S Countryman, the EPA sets official numbers at 26/32 mpg and 25/32 mpg, respective to transmission choice.
With the ALL4 version, fuel economy of 25/31 mpg is achieved with the six-speed manual. The six-speed automatic lowers that to the gas mileage of the Countryman family: it's 24/31 mpg.
MINI backs up early fuel-economy claims with a top rating of 35 mpg on the highway with the new Countryman.
