2020 MINI Countryman vs. Its Competition

2020 Mini Cooper Countryman S E All4
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

Despite its kitschy image, the Countryman competes with subcompact crossovers from true luxury brands like the stylish Audi Q3.

The BMW X1 and X2 share a platform with the Mini, and offer Bavarian brand bravado in two different packages.

The Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is on its last legs before being redesigned, but still comes with a three-pointed star on the hood.

Finally, the Volvo XC40 offers usable space and one of our favorite interiors in a city-friendly package.
