Yeah, that's great, BMW, but here's a better idea. Why not enter the PROPER-SIZED Mini? It's smaller, lighter, more nimble, and it's actually a god-damned Mini. Sort of.

I think the only reason they used the Countryman is to sell it (no-one interested in one cares about off-road-ability. Or even knows what that is). This is why I hate the people in charge of BMW-Mini.
