The Cooper Countryman’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 55 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Rogue S/SV’s standard 65 series tires. The Cooper Countryman JCW’s optional tires have a lower 40 series profile than the Rogue SL’s 60 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Cooper Countryman JCW offers optional 19-inch wheels. The Rogue’s largest wheels are only 18-inches.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires standard on the Cooper Countryman can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. Run-flat tires aren’t available on some tire packages on the Rogue.

The MINI Cooper Countryman may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 300 to 450 pounds less than the Nissan Rogue.

To help each driver find a more comfortable driving position, the Cooper Countryman has a telescoping steering wheel. Much better than just a tilt steering wheel or adjustable seat, this allows a short driver to sit further from the steering wheel while maintaining contact with the pedals. The Rogue doesn’t offer a telescoping steering wheel.

The power windows standard on both the Cooper Countryman and the Rogue have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the Cooper Countryman is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The Rogue prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

The Cooper Countryman’s front and rear power windows all open or close fully with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car. The Rogue’s passenger windows don’t open or close automatically.

If the windows are left down on the Cooper Countryman the driver can raise them all using the key in the outside lock cylinder. On a hot day the driver can lower the windows from outside the vehicle using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the Rogue can’t use the remote to operate the windows.

The Cooper Countryman’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The Rogue’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the Cooper Countryman to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The Rogue doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Cooper Countryman offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The Rogue doesn’t offer headlight washers.

The Cooper Countryman has a standard automatic headlight on/off feature. When the ignition is on, the headlights automatically turn on at dusk and off after dawn. When the ignition turns off, the headlights turn off after a delay timed to allow you to securely get to your front door. The Rogue has an automatic headlight on/off feature standard only on the SV/SL.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the Cooper Countryman offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The Rogue doesn’t offer cornering lights.

To better shield the driver’s vision, the Cooper Countryman has a standard dual-element sun visor that can block glare from two directions simultaneously. The Rogue doesn’t offer a secondary sun visor.

The Cooper Countryman’s standard outside mirrors include heating elements to clear off the mirrors for better visibility. Heated mirrors cost extra on the Rogue and aren’t offered on the Rogue S.

The Cooper Countryman offers optional automatic dimming rear and side view mirrors which automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Rogue offers an automatic rear view mirror, but its side mirrors don’t dim.

The Cooper Countryman will cost the buyer less in the long run because of its superior resale value. The Intellichoice estimates that the Cooper Countryman will retain 54.88% to 56.95% of its original price after five years, while the Rogue only retains 48.99% to 50.37%.
