The 2015 MINI Countryman may be small, but its premium price puts it into competition with a number of larger vehicles.
The more powerful BMW X1 is almost as compact--with a cramped back seat--but is based on a rear-wheel-drive platform with the associated handling qualities.
The Range Rover Evoque is larger, pricier, and prettier--and offers more real luxury features.
Neither the Acura RDX nor the Volkswagen Tiguan, which may be closer on paper to what the Countryman offers, have anything like the MINI personality and character--but they do offer more volume for people and goods.
