2015 MINI Countryman launched in India

BMW, the world famous luxury car producer, had halted the assembly of Countryman in the country a few weeks ago. But now BMW has launched the 2015 Mini Countryman in India which is going to cost 36.50 lakhs, ex showroom price, New Delhi. The vehicle will be brought in India through the CBU route as the earlier one saw a declination of total sales. The new model which has been launched just recently will be having an array of changes aesthetically and changes will be seen also inside the cabin. Being touted as a Sport activity vehicle this one, like the earlier Countryman will also be made available in just the diesel variant.

Featuring a contoured bonnet, the new changes will bring a slight modification of the front fascia. The Hexagonal grilles have also been redesigned and it now is laced with larger Xenon headlights along with the beautiful foglights. Strikingly remarkable wheel arches will provide a good overall look to the 17 inch alloy wheels, overhands has been shortened and the ground clearance increased. The rear side of the vehicle gets curvy and beautiful LED lights with a muscular tailgate adding quite a bit of width to the overall design of the countryman with the twin exhausts gives the vehicle a cool sporty look. However, the changes made to the exteriors are quite standard, nothing too groundbreaking but there is no denying to the fact that they do contribute to the overall brilliant design of the car. BMW is widely known for the look its cars boast of and this one looks like a true beauty from the BMW herd.

While talking about the insides, we are going to see quite a good list of changes. For the better view of the driver the seats have been lifted a bit in the 2015 MINI countryman and the seats are made of very fine material which is very upmarket and seats are adjustable for the driver and the co-drivers. The dashboard remains the same with its beautiful circular shape. The makers have this time provided the consumers with many options to choose regarding the colour combinations, upholstery elements, trim elements and the new interior colours which are quite fascinating. However these changes do give the car a premium feeling but still nothing too groundbreaking to mention here. The consumers will be also getting a multi functional steering wheel along with the 6.5 inch multifunctional infotainment screen which will provide the entertainment in audio and visual forms. For additional music experience, there is a radio MINI boost CD laced with an efficient 640 watt loud music system which comes with 10 speakers, promises to provide an excellent entertainment experience during the longer and tiring drives. You can also have Panoramic Sunroof if you like it.

Let’s come to the powertrain of the vehicle. A turbocharged 2.0 litre and four cylindered diesel engine will power the car and is expected to churn out a maximum power of 112 bhp and a peak torque of 270 Nm.
