Countryman vs Hardtop: Style Inside and Out
One perk of the 2021 Hardtop is that it’s available in either two-door or four-door models. Depending on what you want out of your vehicle, you may enjoy having the choice of a smaller or larger model.
Alternatively, the 2021 Countryman is only available in a four-door model and is the largest model in the lineup. If you’re looking for a vehicle with the interior cargo space to fit everything you need, the Countryman may have a little more to offer you:
|Countryman||Hardtop 4-Door||Hardtop 2-Door|
|Seating||5 people||5 people||4 people|
|Cargo Space||47.6 cu. ft.||40.7 cu. ft.||34 cu. ft.|
Along with the many classic colors of the MINI Cooper—which you can get in either the Countryman or Hardtop—the 2021 Hardtop will be available in an eye-catching Coral Red Edition. This Coral Red Edition will come with features like standard LED Headlights and Fog Lights with Union Jack LED taillights and 17-inch Rail Spoke 2-Tone wheels.
The 2021 Countryman will also have standard LED Headlights, taillights, and fog lights, as well as 17-inch alloy wheels. It will feel extra luxurious with the standard Panoramic Moonroof—which is only available in higher trim levels of the 2021 MINI Hardtop.
2021 Countryman vs Hardtop: Exceptional Performance

With two powerful engines available for either vehicle, you will find intense strength regardless of what you pick.
