At MINI of Peabody, we’re proud to offer Massachusetts car-buyers a superior and unique vehicle brand. Many years in business has taught us that MINI cars are exceptional and deliver an incomparable driving experience every time you slide behind the wheel. Even in today’s market where SUVs are increasingly popular, models like the 2017 MINI Cooper Countryman are hard to keep on the lot. And once you see how it ranks in comparison to an SUV, like the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek, you’ll understand why.

The 1.5 Liter Overhead Cam, 16-Valve Inline 3-Cylinder Turbocharged, Aluminum engine in the 2017 MINI Countryman will go 0-60 mph in seven seconds and packs a horsepower of 181. The 2.0 Liter DOHC engine in the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek takes about a second longer to go 0-60 mph and delivers a horsepower of 148, leaving it lacking in the speed and power department.

The MINI model also offers unique features the SUV can’t touch, like a standard Panoramic Sunroof and three standard Driving Modes you can choose from with the flip of a switch. The Green Mode optimizes fuel delivery for a more efficient drive, while Sport Mode tightens the steering for a more responsive drive, and Mid Mode provides a nice balance.

Standard safety features include Rain-Sensing Wipers and the Rear Park Distance Control, which works with the Rear View Camera. Plus, it comes with a warranty that covers recommended scheduled maintenance for up to three years or 36, 000 miles. And that’s something the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek just can’t compete with.

These are only a few of the ways the 2017 MINI Countryman stands out from the crowd. Stop by MINI of Peabody today for a test drive and let us show you why we’re one of the top MINI dealers near North Shore, MA.
