We always knew the Countryman would help MINI in regards to sales. But never has that been more the case for the US market this past month. The small crossover got within 400 units of out-selling the iconic MINI hatch and was up almost 60% year over year. In fact if it wasn’t for the Countryman MINI’s US sales would have been less than stellar. But what about the Coupe and Roadster?

MINI USA reported sales of 5,855 automobiles, an increase of 24.3 percent from the 4,711 sold in July 2011. Year-to-date, MINI sales in the U.S. are up 9.8 percent on volume of 37,914 compared to 34,527 in the first seven months of 2011.
