Running costs

The car's appealing purchase price should be attractive enough but the MINI Countryman’s running costs don't look too shabby either particularly if you opt for the entry level diesel model. To achieve the impressive fuel economy and efficiency MINI has included stop/start, brake regeneration and an optimum gearchange indicator.

Officially, the One D returns 64.2mpg - an excellent result for a fairly sizeable crossover - and the Cooper D mirrors that figure. Petrolwise, the story is just as positive: the entry level One has an official average fuel consumption of 47.1mpg, the Cooper 39mpg and the Cooper S 46.3mpg.
