MINI USA sales shot through the roof for February up 42.3% compared to the same month in 2017. But there’s something even more interesting than the numbers here.

The main reason for the dramatic sales increase is the continued success of the Countryman which wasn’t in wide distribution at this time last year. In total MINI USA saw 3,065 vehicles sold, an increase of 42.3 percent from the 2,154 sold in the same month a year ago.

But something else happened in February that’s never happened in MINIUSA’s history. The Countryman not only outsold the F56 hatch but the F56 hatch an F55 four door COMBINED. Yet another sign that the US market is continuing to move towards crossovers at the expense of small cars.
