The 2016 MINI Countryman is One of Our Favorites

October 12th, 2016 by


We have to come clean: we love the 2016 MINI Countryman here at Bill Jacobs MINI. It combines the unmatched, iconic style of MINI with an unabashedly rugged look. The result? An incredible car that has a habit of stopping passersby in their tracks. And for anyone who thinks a MINI is too small for their day-to-day needs, clearly they don’t know about the MINI Countryman model’s four doors, or the fact it provides seating for five.

Of course, this is a MINI vehicle, so you know it’s unbelievably fun to drive. Macpherson struts in the front and a highly-tuned, multi-link suspension in the rear help to provide world-renowned handling. The Dynamic Stability Control system is one impressive piece of tech. The system employs sensors to measure the steering angle, lateral acceleration, and yaw to determine which direction you’d like to go in. And if your car starts to sway, the system is kind enough to guide it back on course by applying corrective brake pressure to individual wheels and adjusting engine torque.

Rest assured, the 2016 MINI Countryman always has your back. The Crash Sensor System ensures that, in the event of an accident, the car automatically turns on hazard and interior lights, unlocks doors, and cuts the fuel pump if the airbags have been deployed.

To be honest, the MINI Countryman is just built well, plain and simple. Each and every MINI Countryman model sports an ultra-rigid body with multiphase steel frame, resulting in reduced body torque, super-tight handling, and a flex-free frame that does its part to cut down on squeaks, rattles, vibrations, and cabin noise.

Can we tell you another secret? Not only do we have the MINI Countryman waiting here for a test drive, we also have over 50 all-new 2017 MINI models. Come into our Naperville, IL MINI dealership today to see for yourself!
