Mini has introduced a limited edition of its Countryman city SUV as the company aims to reverse last year's sales slide.

The Mini Cooper Countryman Stafford Edition – powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder (100kW/220Nm) – starts from $47,500 drive-away, while the perkier Mini Cooper S Countryman Stafford Edition – powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder (141kW/280Nm) – is priced from $54,900 drive-away.

Mini Australia says the Stafford Edition trim adds no price premium over the standard Countryman when on-road costs are added.

The Stafford Edition trim brings cosmetic styling inspired by John Cooper Works (JCW) – Mini’s performance division – to the Countryman, adding a JCW exterior styling kit, JCW 18-inch ‘Grip Spoke’ design alloy wheels, carbon black sports seats, a piano black interior and Anthracite headlining as standard for both variants.

Further to these, the Cooper S Countryman also gets a panoramic sunroof, climate package and sun protection glazing, and a Harmon Kardon 12 speaker sound system as standard.

The Countryman Stafford Editions are available in four colours, including Midnight Black, Light White, Chili Red and Island Blue.

The Stafford Edition Countryman models are also the first available for configuration and deposit online, allowing customers to order a car from the comfort of their home.
