The 2012 MINI Countryman, for sale in Knoxville at Knoxville MINI dealer, MINI of Knoxville, is a genuine crossover. Longer and taller, the new MINI Countryman bridges the gap between the classic concept of the MINI and a modern crossover.
Knoxville 2012 MINI Countryman dealer, MINI of Knoxville, offers the Mini Contryman in two trim levels: Cooper and Cooper S.
The 2012 MINI Countryman will include the extensively upgraded 1.6 liter, four-cylinder engines, resembling the original MINI’s in cylinder number and placement, transversely over the front axle, but far more efficient, cleaner and powerful. Both were developed utilizing BMW Group’s expertise in the field of engine development.
The MINI Cooper Countryman accelerates from 0-60 mph in 9.8 seconds. The MINI Cooper S joins the forces of direct injection and a twin-scroll turbocharger with the incredible power-enhancing and fuel-efficient technology known as Valvetronic, making the engine the most efficient in its displacement class. The MINI Cooper S Countryman accelerates to from 0-60 mph in 7.0 seconds.
The MINI Cooper produces 121 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque, while the MINI Cooper S boasts 181 hp and 177 lb-ft respectively (192 lb-ft with overboost).
The 2012 MINI Countryman, for sale in Knoxville, maintains the unique design characteristics, superior style and quality inherent to the MINI brand, while adding new larger body dimensions, greater ground clearance and four doors for those customers who need just a little more MINI.
It also features short overhangs, a high window line, a powerful stance and windows extending around the entire car, together with proportions typical of the MINI brand. At the same time, the MINI Countryman subtly re-interprets the classic features of a MINI such as the roofline, the hexagonal radiator grille element, the large headlights and turn signal indicators integrated in the engine lid, the prominent wheel arches and the upright rear light clusters.
The MINI Countryman offers superior comfort on long distance drives with generous legroom, headroom and shoulder freedom for all occupants and two individual rear seats are fitted as standard. The rear seats move fore-and-aft 5.1 inches independently, and the backrests may be tilted for angle or folded flat, offering up to 41.3 cu ft of space in the boot… enough for two mountain bikes with their front wheels removed (24.0 cu ft for MINI Hardtop). Even with the seats in their upright position, the MINI Countryman is able to meet additional space requirements as the rear seat backrests may be moved to a more vertical cargo position increasing luggage space from 12.2–16.5 cubic feet.
And for those who need more options to carry their adventure items, a standard low-profile roof rail system gives Knoxville 2012 MINI Countryman owners the ability to add a full line of MINI accessories.
