You might know Mini as the spunky, go-kartlike British purveyor of small hatchbacks, convertibles, and SUVs, but the brand is actually owned by BMW. Despite its Germanic roots, Mini's lineup—especially the Mini Cooper and the Mini Clubman—maintains the cheeky styling of the original British Minis from the 1960s. The Countryman crossover provides a higher seating position and available all-wheel drive to satisfy buyers looking for a Mini with more room for people and cargo as well as all-weather confidence. If you need your Mini to be a little more maxi when it comes to performance, check out the JCW versions of each model.
