Five-time winner of the Dakar Rally, X-raid has applied its expertise to turn the Mini Countryman into a slightly more competent off-roader. The posh crossover has received a 0.78-inch (two-centimeter) suspension lift and beefier tires to boost ground clearance by as much as 1.57 inches (four centimeters). It rides on “more robust rims” wrapped in tires that have higher sidewalls.
X-raid made additional changes to the Countryman, adding an aluminum roof rack as well as extra LED lights in front of the grille. Rounding off the tweaks are the orange accents contrasting the vehicle’s black look. The company is selling these goodies either as a complete package or individual parts, depending on what you need.
