Now, let's take a look into the interior design of the Mini Countryman. You will be amazed when you enter the Mini Countryman's cabin.

The Fuel Consumption of the Mini Countryman
Now, we are going to focus on the fuel consumption of the Mini Countryman. We usually work on popular engine types and making analyses on them by checking details for an efficient fuel consumption analysis. While choosing the right car, you need specific and simple information. That’s why we are using this distinction method to make things easier for you. We use two main categories to make a useful distinction such as; The Most Economical One and The Most Powerful One. Mini Countryman has got four standard engine varieties such as; 1.5, 1.5 D, 2.0 and 2.0 D. We are going to analyse two of them as the most economical and the most powerful one. However, Mini Countryman is combining both of these features under one engine which is; 1.5 E. It has got a three cylindered engine structure with a 1499 cm3 size. It is using a Hybrid Engine Structure so we can say that it is using both electricity and gasoline as an energy source. It can produce 224 HP with the sufficient engine size. It is definitely adequate for a vehicle like Countryman According to the official BMW factory data, 1.5 E has got a 2,0lt/100km (which refers to 141 MPG in the UK) combined fuel consumption rate. However, it is a Hybrid Type Engine. So, the urban and extra urban fuel consumption might change according to the conditions. We are not able to provide a certain information about these MPG rates.
