The second-generation F60 MINI Countryman has been spotted tracking at the Nurburgring. Like the new MINI Clubman and the BMW X1, the F60 Countryman is based on the the longer version of the front wheel drive UKL platform.

The new Countryman will cater to the MINI demographic looking for a larger off-roader with more interior and storage space. Along with a front-wheel drive version, the Countryman will be offered in an all-wheel drive variant. The additional drive of the rear wheels is accomplished by using a Haldex clutch.

Under the hood, MINI will fit three and four-cylinder engines, both in gasoline and diesel.

MINI will launch the Countryman in 2017.

      But it looks like this Countryman really loves the track, crazy! Thinking on that usal customer base, this car will be much better (on the track) than anyone would ever need :D
