The 2025 MINI Countryman is all new and available in both internal combustion and electric formats for the first time. In the US it will be a more paired down model offering with MINI USA selling only the three models with a focus on the higher-end of the market. But when will these MINIs go on sale and when they do, what will they cost? Let’s dive into the details
As you can see below the pricing has gone up but then again MINI has moved the “S” model Ito the base position eliminating the previous lower spec, front wheel drive offerings. That means every Countryman sold in the US will have ALL4, MINI’s all wheel drive system as standard. We also believe that MINI USA will be equipping these cars with much more standard equipment even at their base MSRP.
|MINI Countryman Models||MSRP||Power||Drivetrain||Start of Production||US Deliveries|
|U25 MINI Countryman S||$38,900||241 HP||ICE||03/2024||05/2024*|
|U25 MINI Countryman SE||$45,200||313 HP||Electric||07/2023||09/2024*|
|U25 MINI JCW||$46,900||312 HP||ICE||03/2024||05/2024*|
The 2025 MINI Countryman S
The internal combustion (ICE) powered 2025 Countryman S will start at $38,900 in the US. That will get you a fairly well equipped car but certainly not loaded. MINI will not use all of the trim names and levels we’ve seen in the UK and Europe but instead create their own that will be similar to what we see in the We’d expect roughly a $10k swing between this new base S model and a fully loaded version.
This new Countryman S model will have 241 hp and 295 lbs of torque 2.0 liter. That’s more than a 50 hp increase and more than the original F60 JCW model from just five years ago.
One interesting note, the US will not incorporate a mild hybrid system into this engine due to cost and weight trade-offs. Since there’s less stringent efficiency standards in the US there’s really no need to.
The 2025 MINI Countryman SE
The electric Countryman SE will start at $45,200. That’s JCW territory but then again it has more than JCW performance. With 313 hp and a staggering 363 lbs of torque, this Countryman can get to 60 mph in only 5.6 seconds.
Perhaps more important to many potential owners will be the range. MINIUSA is quoting a range of 245 miles. That’s substantially above our previous 225 mile estimate and coupled with 130 kW DC fast charging, is good news for would be owners.
But it’s still not the final EPA figures so keep that in mind – those will come in early January. This 245 mile number is what MINI USA is estimating by looking at performance in the EU and doing their own calculations.
The 2025 MINI Countryman JCW
This new halo model will have an output of 312 hp in the US with 295 ft lbs of torque. That number, 36 ft lbs lower than the previous generation) has been reduced due to the limitation of the new DCT. However with the improved power and power delivery, acceleration is still just over 5 seconds to 60 mph.
The JCW will begin production in March and will arrive to dealers in the US around the May timeframe.
