Small New Zealand Car

New Zealanders have loved the Mini forever, so much so that we made a movie about one in 1981 ‘Goodbye Pork Pie’ about a chap being chased by police from the top to the bottom of NZ. The New Mini takes urban mobility to a new level, yet retains every bit of its awesome MINIness when you're out of town. Now with four doors, a large luggage compartment and up to five seats, you’ll find ample legroom for your long adventures. Now with a smooth handling quick 1.5 litre three cylinder turbo engine with a six speed transmission, you will save money as you drive. When you’re thinking about hiring a small SUV, maybe MINI isn’t the first brand that springs to mind. But MINI is a lifestyle brand now, not a reference to the car’s size. The Countryman, well it’s bigger and better equipped than its predecessor. In fact it shares a platform with the BMW X1. The Countryman has accounted for over 30% of MINI sales in New Zealand, and with the growing popularity of SUVs this share is likely to increase.
