Last week, Farmer Copleys invited us down to Ravensknowle Farm to do some pumpkin picking. We could not pass up the opportunity to test drive the MINI Countryman in its natural habitat and get down and dirty on the farm with them.
The MINI Countryman SUV is our most versatile and spacious model, with enough space to seat five comfortably. With an array of innovative technology and room for luggage and equipment, adventure is at the touch of a button.
There is 450 litres of boot space and a whopping 1390 litres with the rear seats down (that's about 50 good size pumpkins). The drive is smoother than ever and with 3-cylinder and 4-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engines it delivers smooth yet powerful performance and torque.
We got off the beaten track and decided to take our Countryman right into the pumpkin field. Along a narrow muddy track, the Countryman effortlessly navigated the makeshift road to park right into the centre of the action. Yes, she got a little muddy (much to the displeasure of our valet team) but the MINI Countryman felt right at home.
Our test drive model is the MINI Countryman Cooper Sport in Enigmatic Black and has the 19" John Cooper Works Circuit Spoke 2 tone alloy wheels. It has a Dinamica/cloth combination Carbon black interior and also comes with Performance control which makes a MINI more agile. Thanks to carefully calibrated braking from the DSC, it corners even more dynamically and cruises around bends with ease. This also improves roadholding. The JCW sport leather steering wheel, Piano Black JCW Interior Trim and Anthracite Headlining are also included.
Many thanks to Farmer Copleys for their wonderful hospitality.
