We have nothing but a lot many great things to say about the Mini Countryman. Regulars here would know that we were beaming with joy when we reviewed the Cooper S version of the Countryman and now, we have been notified by the boffins at BMW that the CKD assembly of the Countryman has commenced in India. With this, the Countryman becomes the first Mini to be produced outside Europe.
The Mini Countryman will now be assembled at BMW’s plant near Chennai. Full points to BMW India for beginning the local assembly of the Countryman just a year after the start of sales of Mini cars in India.
Another great news about the Countryman is that it will now be sold in two diesel variants – MINI Cooper D Countryman and MINI Cooper D Countryman High.
Mini One Countryman, a new petrol variant, will also be produced at BMW Plant Chennai.
The other petrol variants of the MINI Countryman – MINI Cooper S Countryman and MINI Cooper S Countryman High – will continue to be imported in India as Completely Built-up Units (CBUs).
