We’ve already seen the redesigned 2025 Mini Countryman in its new electric form and as a high-performance JCW variant, and now Mini has released more details on the more mainstream version. Called the Countryman S All4, this gas-powered model is the least expensive version of the bunch but still costs a good bit more than its predecessor.Starting at $38,895, the S All4 comes with all-wheel drive and a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four that produces 241 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This is essentially the same setup that comes standard in the BMW X1 with which the Countryman shares its platform. Mini hasn’t yet divulged whether there will be a front-wheel-drive version or if there will be a lower-powered non-S variant of the Countryman, as was the case with the outgoing model.MINIThe S All4 looks basically identical to the electric and JCW Countryman models inside and out, as they all share angular new exterior styling and a thoroughly modernized interior with a 9.4-inch circular touchscreen and cloth trim on the dashboard. Colors include white, silver, black, and a light green called Smokey Green, and two-tone 19-inch wheels are available. Mini also says the S All4 is rated to tow up to 3500 pounds.The S All4 and JCW versions of the Countryman will be the first to arrive in the U.S., as they’re estimated to start reaching dealerships in spring 2024. The electric Countryman SE All4 will follow them by a few months and is set to arrive in the fall.
