For decades, Consumer Reports has been one of the primary authorities when it comes to rating vehicles, as well as a huge variety of different products. Each year, it comes out with its vehicle ratings for a number of different vehicle categories, and in the most recent ratings, the 2019 MINI Cooper Countryman reigned supreme. Here at MINI of Bedford, we are proud to have the nationally-recognized SUV on our lot.

Getting more into detail, in the “SUVs: Luxury Entry Level” category of the 2019 Consumer Reports “New Cars” issue, the 2019 MINI Cooper Countryman was given the highest rating. This is impressive on its own, but given that the competition includes vehicles that are nearly double the price of this affordable MINI SUV. The overall score for the MINI Countryman was 78 out of 100, which is 12 points higher than its nearest competitor. A team of vehicle experts test drives the vehicle and rates them according to the road-test, the miles-per-gallon, and the highs and lows. The listed “highs” for the 2019 MINI Cooper Countryman were its handling, braking, powertrain, seat comfort, fit and finish, and character.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the 2019 MINI Cooper Countryman, this is the largest and most spacious vehicle manufactured by MINI. Called a Sports Activity Vehicle by MINI, the MINI Cooper Countryman is a great option for Exeter, NH-area drivers looking for a versatile vehicle that is as comfortable in town as it is off-roading. The ALL4 all-wheel-drive helps it stand out among the competition, and a long list of premium tech features and a comfortable interior make every drive comfortable.
