Technologies Found Inside the 2019 Cooper S Countryman
You can also enjoy the many high-tech features found inside the MINI Cooper S Countryman. One of them is standard Bluetooth® technology, which allows you to make phone calls or stream audio, hands-free.
You’ll also find Apple CarPlay™ smartphone integration in the highest trim level. This feature allows you to make phone calls, send text messages, access podcasts, and perform other functions without touching your phone while driving.
In addition, if you need directions to a new hotspot in the area, simply enter the address into the available touchscreen navigation system. Plus, it comes with real-time traffic updates, so you’ll get from Point A to Point B in no time at all.
Advanced Safety Options
Still, the technologies inside the 2019 Cooper S Countryman will do more than keep you connected and entertained—they’ll help keep you safe, as well.
One feature that you’ll appreciate is the available Active Driving Assistant, which includes driver-assisting technologies, such as Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking. If a collision is likely, the system will send warnings for you to take action. If you don’t react in time, it can automatically apply the brakes for you.
Another useful safety feature is Adaptive Cruise Control. It uses intelligent engine and braking control to help the vehicle maintain a set speed. There’s even an on-board camera that can help you keep a safe distance from the car in front of you.
Passive Safety Features
If you were to get into an accident, you can feel better knowing the Countryman was designed to protect you. That’s because it has an ultra-rigid body. It also has an advanced airbag system that includes:
- Two front airbags
- Two side-impact airbags
- Two ceiling-mounted side-curtain airbags
With this system in place, you and your loved ones can be protected from any potential secondary impacts.
Cooper S Countryman Performance Specs
The 2019 Cooper S Countryman has a well-rounded performance with engaging handling and a peppy engine.
It comes with a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that delivers 189 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. Plus, the engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that has seamless shifting.
Not only is the vehicle quite powerful, but it’s very fuel-efficient, too. It achieves an EPA-estimated 27 combined MPG, so you can spend more time cruising around town and less time searching for a nearby gas station to refuel.
The Countryman also comes standard with various driving modes to customize your experience on the road. Whether you want to focus on performance, efficiency, or a mix of both, you can with the Sport, Green, or Mid settings.
Furthermore, while the SUV comes standard in front-wheel drive, it’s available in all-wheel drive (AWD). The ALL4 AWD system can redistribute power between the front and rear wheels when needed. This is done the moment a loss of traction is detected, so that you can stay in control on even the slickest surfaces.
