We’re just back from the LA Autoshow where we went hands-on with the new Countryman. Of the many things we learned about the new car (look for a post soon) there were two that many of you have been waiting on. So lets get to it. MINI USA will be releasing final pricing for all Countryman Cooper S and Cooper models in the middle of December. The Countryman configurator that many of you have been waiting on will go live in early January.

The Countryman (again Cooper and Cooper S models) will launch in the North American market this March (likely late March) with the PHEV hybrid model hitting dealerships in June. We’ll be driving the petrol powered Countryman in early March and will bring you our first take then.
