The MINI Countryman has often been touted for its go-kart-like feel. This vehicle has always been known for its smooth and fun handling. However, how fast is this model? In other words, how fast can it accelerate? Get all the details regarding acceleration times. 

Acceleration Time 

The MINI Countryman can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.9 to 9.6 seconds. The MINI Countryman John Cooper Works has an even more impressive acceleration time at 4.4 seconds. The variation is due to multiple factors, including trim and engine type. 


This speedy acceleration is made possible thanks to the turbocharged three-cylinder engine that delivers 134 hp. For the MINI Countryman S, under the hood is a turbo four-cylinder engine that produces 189 hp and is capable of speedier acceleration. There’s also the MINI Countryman Electric with an engine paired to an electric motor, churning out a total of 221 hp. 

Another facet that assists in acceleration is the optional All4 Drive, the brand’s version of all-wheel-drive. Upgrade to this drivetrain for improved gripping and handling. All four wheels put in equal work when you engage the gas pedal for faster acceleration. Speak with one of our dealers to learn more about upgrading to the ALL4 Drive. 


A vehicle’s weight also contributes to how fast it can accelerate. Being a subcompact crossover, the MINI Countryman is a lightweight model with a weight range between 3,413 and 3,926 pounds. Factors like total number of passengers and cargo weight will also affect acceleration capability.
