2012 Mini Cooper S Countryman ALL4 Front Left Side View
The reason we wanted to test the 2012 Mini Countryman with an automatic transmission is our Four Seasons Countryman with a manual transmission hasn't won a lot of friends. Not only does the clutch suffer from less-than-ideal engagement point and a lack of feel, but our long-term test vehicle went through a clutch in less than 15,000 miles. How come? The clutch disc is too small to handle the torque of the 1.6-liter engine under boost and the engine doesn't have enough torque off boost to get the Mini off the line quickly. Even if you don't intend to abuse the clutch, it's very difficult to launch the car without slipping the clutch excessively when you're trying to move off from a stop faster than the stereotypical Prius driver.

2013 Mini Countryman Coupe Test Mule Profile Motion
This spy shot from our friends at Motor Trend shows a test mule for the Mini Paceman concept, which Mini first showcased at the 2011 Detroit auto show. While a production version is apparently on the way, the Paceman name will apparently not come with it, as rumor has it the model will arrive instead as the Mini Countryman Coupe.
Mini Cooper Yachtsman Joke Profile
Mini had the last laugh yesterday during April Fools’ Day, announcing the debut of two wild niche vehicles. A new Mini Cooper Yachtsman was rumored to make a debut at this week's New York auto show, and some vacationers may have become excited with the announcement of a new Mini caravan and roof-top tent.
2013 Mini JCW Countryman Flight Advertisement 1
The Mini Cooper S Countryman really is no slouch, but that didn't stop the engineers at Mini from going all out and delivering an even quicker John Cooper Works model. Today's Feature Flick features a JCW Countryman doing what it does best: driving very quickly and playing host for a couple of people doing extreme sports.
Mini Countryman Red Bull Crashed Ice 2
What happens, when you mate ice cross (a sport combining ice skates with a downhill roller derby mentality) and water skiing? Well, in this feature flick the Red Bull Crashed Ice team hooks up to the back of a Mini Countryman for some frozen lake hooning.
