New MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid Reviews.

See what others have to say about the new MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4.

The first drives.

Car Magazine

“The – deep breath – Mini Cooper S E All4 PHEV Countryman is the real deal. It has the same virtues as a regular Countryman: a high-quality interior, character in spades and trademark BMW connectivity. And most importantly, it's still great fun to drive with decent performance. But the plug-in capability gives the Countryman a dual nature; it's also a very civilised and responsible urban runabout, when running in zero emissions electric mode. The Countryman PHEV offers the best of both worlds – and right now it's the best small plug-in you can buy.” - Full review here

Press Association

“The Countryman S E Hybrid is ideal for those who want all the looks and charm of a normal MINI, but with better economy figures than even the diesel-powered cars can offer. It’s good-looking, well made inside and surprisingly good to drive, while all of this is backed up by impressive efficiency. For those who are mainly driving in urban areas for most the time, it makes sense to choose the Countryman S E Hybrid.” - Full review here

Car Enthusiast

“Joining the range of Countryman models is MINI's first plug-in hybrid model, called the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4. Not only does it promise low emissions and the potential for impressively low fuel consumption, it still drives with just as much vim as other cars from the MINI stable.” - Full review here

Business Car Manager

“Great to drive and almost as practical as the standard car, there are no obvious rivals unless you consider the bigger, older Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.” - Full review here

Auto Express 

“It feels almost as agile, grippy and composed as the normal car, and far better resolved than a larger Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.” - Full review here

Top Gear

“This is a promising start for plug-in Minis. It’s a cohesive product, and I’d argue it’s the most interesting Countryman you can buy. When it’s already one of the quirkier small SUVs on sale, why not go for its most intriguing drive setup to match?” - Full review here


“The Cooper S E impresses on more than a purely technical level. With nippy qualities in rear-drive electric mode, it proves enjoyable in the cut and thrust of city traffic. It’s also an impressively hushed cruiser and has plenty of purchase when pushed along country roads. But with all that added weight, it is never going to match other Countryman models for outright driver engagement.” - Full review here
