London, November 2012 – Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe, continues to invest in the quality of its prestige fleet with the addition of the MINI Countryman. From the end of November, Europcar customers can try out this year’s must drive car from any of its UK-wide network of locations.

Mini Countryman

Europcar prides itself on giving its customers access to the latest vehicles and the widest possible choice, further demonstrated with the addition of these highly popular motors to its fleet. Europcar now offers the MINI Cooper SD, MINI Cooper S Convertible, MINI Cooper D Convertible and the MINI Cooper SD Countryman.

Launched to rave reviews, the Countryman is the first four-door MINI and delivers the same style and fun, but with added space and practicality. Combining the classic MINI design and responsive handling, this crossover offers drivers more space, for added luxury. This is the perfect city car, with enough room for luggage on those country retreats or business trips that demand a stylish set of wheels.

“The enduring popularity of the MINI brand makes this is a great car for our fleet” said Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar UK Group.  “The MINI Countryman was only launched to new car buyers in September, so we’re really excited to be able to make this available for rent this winter.  The MINI Cooper convertible models are already in great demand, so having more of those available for our network of locations around the UK is great news for business and leisure travellers who want to make the most of any winter sun!

“Whether it’s making a statement at city business meetings, enjoying a drive in the country or escaping for the weekend, our customers can do it all in the comfort and convenience of a Europcar vehicle. As the largest car hire provider in Europe, we continue to provide our customers with access to the widest range of quality vehicles, catering for every driver and every occasion.”
