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...
Los Angeles Times
The 2013 MINI Countryman is one of the greenest crossovers you can buy--owing in part to its compact size.
From the most powerful versions to the least, the all-wheel drive Cooper S ALL4 model makes for the least-green Countryman variant, but not by much: with the manual gearbox, it scores 25/31 mpg, while the automatic rates 23/30 mpg. John Cooper Works editions are rated at the same levels.
The front-drive 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.
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.
It's one of the greenest crossovers you can buy: the MINI Countryman earns gas mileage ratings of up to 35 mpg highway.
