MINI’s marketing machine is getting in gear for it’s biggest launch of the year – the revised 2021 MINI Countryman. The refreshed 2021 MINI Countryman is what BMW insiders call an LCI or life-cycle impulse. Typically an LCI is a collection of design and engineering evolutions which keeps the car current throughout the typical 7 year model cycle. For the F60 Countryman, the LCI is mostly focused on design with a handful of new exterior design elements and color choices. The most obvious is the new front-end that emphasizes the height of the Countryman. There’s also new LED headlights and LED foglight (now standard in the US) and LED rear lights that pay homage to the Union Jack.
MINI is also offering White Silver metallic and Sage Green metallic along with a Piano Black exterior option that replaces most of the exterior chrome. Finally there’s a series of new wheels that are more angular and emphasize the SUV aspects of the Countryman.
Inside MINI has finally added the new all digital gauge cluster as an option. There are also updates to the center stack with a new Piano Black high gloss finish as standard. Look for new seating and trim options as well. Beyond the styling changes MINI has updated MINI Connected with new features and a refined interface.
The new 2021 MINI Countryman models are expected to arrive in US showrooms nationwide later this summer. More information on US-specific pricing, options and packages, and EPA figures will be released this summer.
