The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Mini Counryman retains a fair amount of the Mini character and fun-to-drive spirit, but a growing crop of small crossovers give it more competition than ever. If you thought about an SUV but really just want a maneuverable small car with good gas mileage and all-wheel drive, the 2016 Subaru Crosstrek is all you need and nothing you don't.
