City Driving in the MINI Cooper Countryman vs INFINITI QX50

When you hit the open road on the weekends, you can be sure that the MINI Cooper Countryman and INFINITI QX50 will have the space you need. Both are 2-row SUVs that seat five passengers comfortably; however, the MINI offers a bit more room. Take front legroom, for example. MINI provides 40.4 inches, while INFINITI only brings 39.6 inches.

However, you still need to be an adept city driver during the workweek, so you need an SUV that will be compact enough for crowded NYC streets. While both SUVs are agile, the MINI is more compact than the INFINITI overall…
