Feb. 26, 2010 - PRLog -- Checkered Flag MINI in Virginia Beach is anticipating an initial shipment of MINI Cooper Countryman vehicles this fall. The MINI Countryman is a small SUV that is almost 16 inches longer than the popular Mini Cooper, giving Virginia families more reasons to love MINI.

The base Countryman has a 120-horsepower 1.6-liter four cylinder engine, while the sportier Countryman S adds turbo-charging and direct fuel injection for a maximum of 180 horsepower. Both are available with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

While front-wheel-drive will be standard, MINI will also offer a version called ALL4 that will come standard with all-wheel-drive.

The seating position of the driver is slightly higher in the Countryman than that of a standard MINI Cooper, which may aid in access and visibility. MINI describes the interior as “typical of the brand,” suggesting snug quarters and quirky controls.

The MINI Countryman's bucket seat model features a "central rail" that runs the entire length of the interior. It is designed to hold specially-designed clip in elements, such as cup holders and storage boxes for MP3 players or cell phones. Driver-selectable colored ambient lighting just one way Virginia MINI shoppers can customize their Countryman to reflect their individual style.

The Countryman promises to live up to larger expectations, offering four seats, with a three-person second-row bench available at no additional cost. Each of the rear seats slide back and forth more than five inches for added legroom or cargo space. The rear seats also fold flat for carrying long cargo. That back seat is a split-folding design, and cargo capacity jumps from 350 to 1,170 liters (12.2–41.0 cu ft) when it's down.

The Countryman will debut this fall at Checkered Flag MINI in Virginia Beach.  Virginia MINI Cooper shoppers who would like to learn more about Checkered Flag MINI can visit .
