The drivetrain of the car includes a front-wheel drive and an all-wheel-drive system. The engine is turbocharged, and it has an output of 190 horsepower. This engine allows the car to speed up from 0 to 60 mph in just 8.7 seconds.

It also comes with a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission, which has a lot more torque than the manual gearbox.

Engine Life

The engine in Mini Cooper Countryman lasts for around 120,000 miles, which is quite good considering that it is used in this kind of vehicle that gets driven on rough roads regularly (especially if you are buying second-hand).

Different methods can extend the lifespan of the engine. One of them is to use synthetic oil and also keep the engine oil changed regularly.


The tires in Mini Cooper Countryman last for around 6,000 miles. You can replace them easily. However, if you want to save money, you can get them replaced when they are worn out instead of replacing them all at once.


You must regularly service the car. This will help ensure that it has the right amount of maintenance done on it and it will also help ensure that it lasts longer. This is especially true if you have owned the car for a long time or if you drive your car hard regularly.

You should have your oil changed every 3,000 miles or 3 months, depending on how often you drive your car and what kind of driving conditions you put your car through.

Wear and Tear

The brakes slow down the vehicle and also ensure that it stops safely when necessary. Brakes wear out over time and this will affect how well they work over time.
