If you are under 3 feet tall, drive it; otherwise dumped this car.
If you are a 70 year old that prefers to drive under 60kph, get this car, otherwise junked it.
If you have a mountain bank account to spend on a junk recycled metal and cheap plastics, buy this car; otherwise buy at least a Korean car at the minimum.

I own a Countryman, a few points of note:
1) If you get Connected (where an LCD is installed in the center speedo), then the rear backup sensor shows a sonar image of any obstacles behind you - pretty cool and much more useful than just the beep.
2) Pretty sure all Countryman models have USB. Mine is below the handbrake.
3) @ukinayo is totally wrong about height. I am over 6 feet tall; the MINI is one of the few cars I can sit in without my head hitting the roof. In the Countryman, I can even sit with plenty of head AND leg room in the rear! Also, MINI's are for people that generally like more "spirited" driving, not 60Kph grandfathers.
4) The center rail option has a lot of potential but they've not made many interesting things to attach to it yet.
