The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The mildly updated 2015 MINI Countryman is a versatile compact crossover, one of the smallest on the market, that maintains MINI's character and fun-to-drive spirit. The 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan delivers on all of the important small-crossover promises, although it's not as exciting as some other VWs.
