The facelifted MINI Countryman has quietly set its wheels onto Indian soil, with minor blink-and-you’ll-miss-it tweaks designed to freshen the five-year-old MINI crossover.
First, the price – offered only in the Cooper D trim for now, the new Countryman retails at Rs. 36.50 lakh (ex-showroom, all India).

At the event, the company also announced the revised price of its entire range of cars on-sale in India. This price revision comes just a day after the launch of the Fiat Abart 595 Competizione.
Now, on to what’s new – exterior changes are limited to a new grille, re-designed front and rear bumpers and side skirts. Other features include xenon headlights with LED fog lights, 17-inch alloy wheels and vertical rear light clusters.
