Mini SUV – Mini-Frame, MEGA-Awesome!
For those who would love to drive a bigger car without spending too much money on one, the best way to go is to buy a mini SUV. As the name implies, these types of vehicles are only the smallest version of a normal SUV vehicle. Because it takes fewer resources to make one, it only makes sense to pay less for one. The “Minis” almost always come with the same features that the normal SUV has to offer, such as spacious seats, a comfortable interior and an innovative design, and so on. The following vehicles are the latest and greatest in the field of mini SUVs.

The Mini Cooper Countryman measures 161.7 “long, 70.4” wide and 61.5 “high. It weighs 3858 pounds. Countryman comes with three different models, including the Base, S, and S All4. Its price ranges between $ 21,650 and $ 26,950. It has a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine along with a 6-speed manual transmission. Countryman has 27/35 mpg.

Another attractive mini SUV is the Ford Escape. The Escape was one of the first compact SUVs to hit the market a decade ago.
