The Mini marque of cars was launched back in 1959 and acquired by BMW in 1999 who has taken over production and is responsible for many of the cars you see on the road today. While there are current models of the Countryman made today, the Countryman was also a model that was produced in the original line. When production started in the early 60’s, the model had a decorative ash wood trim on the body, which led to the name “woodie” being used in reference to the car. Over the years, the car saw many facelifts. In 2010, the Countryman was launched as a subcompact crossover SUV, which was the first of the type to be launched by Mini. This car has been a popular choice throughout the years. If you own one, you should make sure that you make repairs and replacements with OEM parts.
