Mini will offer a second-generation Countryman for the 2017 model year as a trio of variants that include the first plug-in hybrid and two gasoline models.

The Mini Cooper Countryman and Cooper S Countryman will go on sale in March, while the plug-in hybrid model will go on sale in June. Mini will display the models at the Los Angeles International Auto Show in November.

Two gasoline engines include a direct-injected inline three-cylinder with TwinPower Turbo technology that makes 134 hp and 162 lb.-ft. of torque. A direct-injected, turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with TwinPower Turbo technology makes 189 hp and 207 lb.-ft.

The plug-in variant will be known as the Cooper S E ALL4 and include the inline three-cylinder and electric motor that makes 87 hp, bringing system output to 221 hp. A 7.6 kWh lithium ion battery pack powers the vehicle to about 24 miles of electrified range, according to Mini.

The Countryman grows in length by adding 8.1 inches and width by adding 1.3 inches. The wheelbase grows by 2.9 inches, which increases rear legroom. Cargo volume increases 1.1 cubic feet and 5.4 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.
