Default General questions on the Countryman - 26th February 2018, 05:46 PM

Hello everyone,

I am currently a VW Golf GT 7 owner and am considering switching over to a Mini Countryman as I am looking for a compact SUV, after many years with the brand.

Yet to organise a test drive and have some questions I hope can be answered:-
  • Is the ride height sufficient enough to make entry and exit easier?
  • What is the road noise like on the motorway (based on 17" wheels, non-run flat option, if there is such an option)?
  • How comfortable is the ride?
  • If there is a variable damping option for the above, does it make a difference?
  • Any comments on build quality (paint, trim rattles etc.)
  • Like the Golf, is there an option for a long life service (aka 18,000 miles or 2 years, whichever is the soonest)?
  • Has anyone moved away from a Golf and can provide a comparison?
  • I understand there is a model revision coming. What are these changes and is it worth waiting for?

Thanks in advance.
