2019 MINI Cooper Countryman vs 2019 MINI Cooper Clubman Comparison
The 2019 MINI Cooper Countryman and the 2019 MINI Cooper Clubman are two impressive offerings in the MINI lineup that share many of the same features. These vehicles are suited to different driving personalities, however, so deciding between them comes down to a few different features.
Drivers in Manhattan, Bronx, and Queens can find out the key differences between these two vehicles with our 2019 MINI Cooper Countryman vs. 2019 MINI Cooper Clubman comparison.
Interior Space and Comfort
At first glance, the 2019 MINI Cooper Countryman and the Clubman may seem identical, but their interiors tell a different story. Both seat five in comfortable, supportive seating and share many high-end design details, such as a Signature Upholstery package, heated seating, and premium trim options, though the Countryman offers an additional MINI Yours Lounge Leather Carbon Black upholstery, which adds a little more luxury to the cabin.
Both vehicles are similar in space as well, with the MINI Cooper Clubman at 41.4 inches of front legroom and the Countryman at 40.4 inches of front legroom. In the rear, however, the Countryman adds 3.3 inches of legroom to the Clubman’s 34.3 inches. The cargo space is nearly identical as well, with 17.5 cubic feet for the Clubman and 17.6 cubic feet for the Countryman, and both offer a payload nearing 1,000 pounds.
The Countryman and MINI Cooper Clubman offer identical TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder engines that produce 134 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, with the higher-range models reaching an output of 228 horsepower. Both are available with an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission, as well as ALL4 all-wheel drive, which enhances stability and traction in virtually any road condition.
Fuel economy is matched as well, with both the 2019 MINI Cooper Countryman and Clubman boasting an EPA-estimated 23 MPG city with the eight-speed automatic. The Countryman has 30 MPG highway, however, compared to the Clubman’s 31 MPG highway. Opting for the six-speed manual transmission brings these numbers to 22 MPG city and 32 MPG highway. The Countryman also comes with a 16.1-gallon fuel tank, so it can go longer distances between fill ups, whereas the Clubman has a 13.2-gallon fuel tank.
When it comes to safety, both the 2019 Countryman and MINI Cooper Clubman offer the same protections that give you peace of mind and security on the road. Starting with an ultra-rigid frame design built with multiphase steel, the Countryman and Clubman share improved driving dynamics and the strong construction that stands up well to collision impact. Front, side, side-impact, knee and ceiling-mounted side-curtain airbag systems add an extra layer of safety by estimating the collision force and modulating the inflation of the airbags, which limits the secondary impact of deployed airbags.
The MINI Cooper Countryman and Clubman also have adaptive headlights that sense rain and low-light conditions, as well as moving along the track of the road to give you maximum visibility. A camera-based driver assistance system is available as well, which includes features like Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Braking, to alert you to a potential collision and take preventative measures to avoid impact.
