2019 MINI Countryman Towing Capacity
The MINI Countryman is a crossover that’s built for an exciting adventure, but even the most seasoned weekend warrior knows that sometimes the adventure calls for a little extra gear. For that, you’ll need to know how much this capable crossover can tow.
Our team at MINI of Manhattan wants to help drivers in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens make sure they have what they need to make their journey more fun. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to the 2019 MINI Countryman towing capacity.
In the 2019 MINI Countryman, you’ll have enough towing capacity to bring along a small tear-drop trailer, or a little utility trailer filled with a few toys.
If you’re wondering where this crossover gets the strength to do this, it comes from what lies under the hood. The standard 1.5L TwinPower Turbo engine produces up to 134 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. There’s also the more powerful 2.0L TwinPower Turbo. When equipped with Valvetronic direct-injection, it kicks out 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.
These engines can be paired with a variety of transmissions. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, but if you want more shifting power, towing capability, and efficiency, there’s also an available 8-speed sport automatic transmission.
Capability and Convenience
When you’re towing your trailer out for a fun day of play, you want a vehicle that has the versatility you need to get you to your destination. That’s exactly what you get with the 2019 MINI Countryman.
The available ALL4 all-wheel drive system adds all-weather grip and control to the Countryman. So, whether it’s a slick city street or one of those tricky, unpaved back roads, you’ll be able to get your haul where it needs to be.
What about the gear you don’t need a trailer for? The Countryman has plenty of room for that, too! There’s 17.6 cubic feet of space in the trunk and it has a maximum cargo capacity of 47.6 cubic feet. On top of that, the foot-activated power tailgate will make it even easier to load everything up.
Comfort and Connectivity
Let’s face it, staying comfortable and connected while you’re towing in the 2019 MINI Countryman makes the trip that much more exhilarating. You and your friends will be able to sit back and relax in the available Chesterfield leather-trimmed seats. On top of that, the standard heated front seats will make it easy to fend off the winter cold.
The available 8.8-inch touchscreen display will give you access to Apple CarPlay™ compatibility, so you’ll be able to stay up to date on all your apps and music. Plus, the available navigation system will help make sure you get to your destination on time.
When you arrive at your destination and unpack the trailer, the available picnic cushion makes the Countryman the perfect place to unwind and relax with the family.
Come Test the Power
If you’re preparing for an adventure that requires some extra gear, the 2019 MINI Countryman has the towing capacity you need. On top of that, it’s outfitted with capability, comfort, and technology that’ll make the trip around Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens that much more enjoyable.
