2012 Mini Countryman to get rear bench option

Some would-be Mini Countryman buyers, (my wife included,) have been turned off by the fact that the mini-SUV seats just four. Sure, cramming a third person in the back would make it a tight fit all the way around, but having the choice is certainly nice.

Mini has listened, apparently, and will be offering a rear bench this fall. The daring among you can now fit a total of 5 inside the biggest Mini ever. I don’t recommend putting 3 large humans in the back; that’s just cruel. Stick with kids, and everything should be just fine.
