After few photos of the upcoming Mini R60/Countryman (see the photos below) have leaked some days ago, BMW has issued a press release with the full details.

The U.S. version of Mini’s Crossover will get two engine choices: a 1.6-liter 120 hp four cylinder and a 1.6-liter 180 hp four cylinder benefiting from direct injection and twin-scroll turbocharger. The latter will be featured in the Cooper S Countryman, which will also feature all-wheel drive. Standard six-speed manual and optional automatic transmissions will be available for both versions.

The standard Countryman will roll to 60 mph in 10 seconds and will top out at an electronically-limited 118 mph, while the Cooper S variant will hit 60 mph in 7.6 seconds and will have a top speed of 128 mph.

The Mini R60 will make its debut in Geneva this year and will hit the European market later this year and the U.S. market –  early next year. It is expected in both petrol and diesel varieties with prices starting 25,000 Euros. [via WorldCarFans and EgmCarTech]
