2015 MINI Countryman announced for New York image

MINI will be officially presenting to the public the 2015 Countryman during next week’s New York Auto Show, as the company has recently announced.

Originally unveiled for the 2011 model year and receiving its first updated just last year, the MINI Countryman is now getting ready to receive a new facelift, for the 2015 model year. According to the British based automaker, the model in question will be making its public debut next week, during the 2014 New York Auto Show. The 2015 MINI Countryman will not receive a new generation, despite the Cooper hatchback has been recently upgraded.

The 2015 MINI Countryman is coming with some minor styling changes, which will match up to the look of the Cooper hardtop, and it will also come with some technologies found on the new hatchback, like the MINI Connected infotainment system, the head-up display or the electronic driver aids. This is believed to be the last update of the Countryman, before it will be receiving a new generation. The upcoming model is being developed along with the next BMW X1 generation and it will ride on the UKL platform. This should come in 2015 or 2016.
