MINI has unveiled its updated-for-2014 Countryman SUV for this week's New York Auto Show, ahead of a global market debut set to kick off from July.

Buyers can expect more power and better fuel economy from some of the new models, with up to 11 different variants available, depending on the market.

The Countryman retains its various four-cylinder petrol and diesel engine options for 2014, with power outputs ranging from 66 to 160kW, and torque ranging from 153 to 305Nm.

The updated Cooper S Countryman gets a 5kW power boost - up from 135kW - while transmission options for all models consist of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic.

Thanks to ‘MINI-malism’ technology, the 2014 range sees fuel consumption drop to between 4.2 and 7.1 l/100km due to refined engines and aerodynamic improvements.

Outside, the updated Countryman gets a new grille, LED fog lights with daytime running lights and lighter alloy wheels, along with three additions to the paint palate; Jungle Green, Midnight Grey and Starlight Blue (all metallic).

Options include Piano Black exterior highlights, under-ride guard elements, side sills (standard on ALL4 all-wheel-drive models) and tyres with reduced rolling resistance.

The John Cooper Works version still tops the Countryman range, with power from its 1.6 twin-scroll turbocharged petrol engine unchanged at 160kW/280Nm but fuel consumption is down from 8.0 to 7.1 l/100km.

At the other end of the scale is the One D Countryman - a model not currently offered in Australia - fitted with a 1.6 litre turbo-diesel making 66kW/215Nm, while returning 4.2 l/100km.

Australian timing for the updated Countryman is still to be confirmed. TMR expects to see a local launch occur in either late 2014 or very early 2015.
