2025 MINI Countryman S ALL4 Review: A Sporty Alternative to the Golf GTI

What’s up, readers? I hope you’re all healthy and enjoying life. Today, we’re discussing the 2025 MINI Countryman S ALL4. A huge thank you to Sha Samson over at MINI of Sterling, Virginia, for allowing us to review this vehicle. Now, let’s get into the details!

2025 MINI Countryman S ALL4 Exterior and Performance

The 2025 MINI Countryman S ALL4 is painted in Midnight Black II and redesigned inside and out for the 2025 model year. It comes standard with LED headlights with high beam assist, LED daytime running lights, and LED turn signals.

From the front, this model features a bronze logo grille surround and front chin, with a satin black front grille and body-colored grille panel. The red “S” logo is on the right-hand side of the grille, and there’s a forward-facing camera at the center, part of the standard 360-degree view camera system with six forward-facing sensors.

The exterior also includes satin black lower fascia, satin black wheel arch moldings, and optional dynamic damper control for $500, adjusting based on your driving mode. This model is fitted with $600 20-inch windmill spoke two-tone wheels wrapped in 245/40 Pirelli P0 all-season tires.


Moving to the sides, you get body-colored mirror caps with integrated turn signals, heated and power-folding side view mirrors with blind spot monitoring, and cameras that work with the 360-degree view camera system. Additionally, the $900 Comfort Package Max includes an auto-dimming driver mirror.

With the favored style package, you can choose a body-color roof, black painted roof, or black mirror caps. This model has a body-color roof, black roof rails, black window trim, and body-colored door handles with keyless access.

The bottom of the passenger doors features bronze rocker panels matching the wheels and logos, with the rest in satin black. The rear includes a body-colored antenna, roof spoiler with an integrated third brake light, rear window defroster, and Union Jack-style LED tail lights.

The power liftgate opens to reveal a surprisingly spacious storage area, despite the vehicle’s compact size. It includes a storage cubby and significant underfloor storage area since there’s no spare tire. You also get a cargo cover and fold-flat second-row seats for additional space.

The favored style extends to the rear with a satin black rear bumper, six integrated parking sensors, and an optional $600 trailer hitch with a 3,500 lb tow capacity.

Inside, the Countryman S ALL4 offers keyless access, allowing you to unlock the vehicle by simply having the key fob in your pocket.

The interior is equipped with two memory seat settings for the driver, a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel with three levels of adjustability, and a variety of controls for adaptive cruise control, volume, media, and phone functions. The Harman Kardon sound system, part of the $3,200 iconic trim level, delivers exceptional audio quality.

For the tech-savvy, the 9.4-inch infotainment system includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, built-in navigation with augmented reality, and various driver assistance features. The vehicle also offers a panoramic roof, a wireless charging pad, and multiple connectivity options including USB-C ports and a 12V power outlet.
