2012 MINI Cooper Countryman Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy
The 2012 MINI Countryman is one of the greenest crossovers you can buy--owing in part to its compact size.

At 27 mpg city and 35 mpg highway, the base model with manual transmission is the greenest choice. Opting for the automatic cuts gas mileage to 25/30 mpg.

The Cooper S Countryman gains 60 horsepower but loses a few mpg in manual-transmission trim at 26/32 mpg. The automatic, however, improves to 25/32 mpg.

With highway gas mileage up to 35 mpg and around-town economy not lower than 23 mpg even with all-wheel drive, the 2012 MINI Countryman is one of the greenest crossovers available.

Adding all-wheel drive with the ALL4 model makes for the least-green Cooper S variant, but not by much: with the manual gearbox, it scores 25/31 mpg, while the automatic rates 23/30 mpg.
