MINI Countryman ALL4 MTTS2010
2011 MINI Cooper Countryman
They aren’t kidding either; they had a couple that met on a previous MTTS rallye, fell in love and at the end of tonight’s event were married in front of the crowd. Witnesses—6000 MINI enthusiasts. The other guest of honor at the Owners Garage Party was the 2011 MINI Countryman ALL4. In fact, there were no less than 5 of them at the event. For those who haven’t seen one, it is the first 4-door, all-wheel drive MINI on the market. Critics will tell you that it isn’t all that MINI, but sitting next to the many MINIs that came to Denver, it certainly can’t be called large…unless you are talking about in spirit. At 121 hp and about 24K for the base MINI Countryman, this might just be the car to get you into the passionate MINI community—4 doors and an extra 6 inches can be pretty compelling. When is the last time you remember a car company showing owner appreciation like this?
Stay tuned as we cover the MINIcross driving event and Festival tomorrow. AllSmallCars.com is going to be in the thick of MINI Cooper S’ being raced against the clock and owners and enthusiasts that make the MINI brand what it is today. The excitement might just make you want to get one of your own.
