Mini Countryman GCC launch in Dubai
We just received a press release stating that the 2011 Mini Countryman had its GCC launch in Dubai with a “two-day action packed adventure” for the media around the UAE. We also heard from some Sharjah newspaper journalist that even he was invited. But of course, we being a small-time website with only 100,000 audited GCC readers and 280,000 worldwide users, with five times more web traffic than Car Middle East or any other local website, were deemed not worthy enough to join the party.
The Mini Countryman is a 5-door crossover powered by a 184 hp 1.6-litre turbo 4-cylinder engine with 240 Nm of torque and all-wheel-drive, or a 122 hp 1.6-litre in base trim. It is expected to reach Middle East showrooms by March.
