City Driving In the MINI Cooper Countryman vs INFINITI QX50

When you hit the open road on the weekends, you can be sure that both the MINI Cooper Countryman and INFINITI QX50 will have the space you need. Both are 2-row SUVs that seat five passengers comfortably, with more than 39 inches of legroom for the driver.

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 overall than the INFINITI:

MINI Cooper Countryman INFINITI QX50
Length 169.8 inches 185 inches
Width 78.9 inches 85.1 inches
Width with mirrors folded 71.7 inches 74.9 inches
Wheelbase 105.1 inches 110.2 inches

With a wheelbase that’s 5.1 inches shorter than the INFINITI QX50, the MINI Cooper Countryman may be easier to navigate through the city. With a shorter length, the MINI may also be easier to parallel park, and the 3.2-inch difference in width with the mirrors folded may protect the MINI Cooper Countryman more from passing cars when parked on the side of the road.

Exciting Engine Specs: MINI Cooper Countryman and INFINITI QX50

When you hit the road for a fun weekend away from the hustle and bustle, both SUVs will have the stuff for an exciting outing. They both have a standard or available 2.0L turbocharged engine that really brings the power:

Engine 2.0L TwinPower Turbo I-4 2.0L VC-Turbo I-4
Maximum Horsepower 301 horsepower 268 horsepower
Maximum Torque 331 lb-ft 280 lb-ft

While the MINI has the potential to deliver more power than the INFINITI, it’s important to note that both SUVs have available all-wheel drive (AWD). The AWD system in both SUVs can keep you moving forward all year long, even when there’s snow in the forecast because it actively monitors your driving conditions and automatically adjusts torque distribution to improve traction control. You can further customize your drive in both the MINI Cooper Countryman and INFINITI QX50 with their respective drive modes. Choose between modes for fuel efficiency, sportiness, and balanced everyday driving, and your SUV will respond to deliver the drive you want.
