For those of you wondering what the rear bench option on the Countryman looks like, a video posted on Motoringfile had a quick glimpse. This is the first good look I have seen but there might have been others somewhere that I had not noticed. I think I would opt for the bench instead of the rail but that's just me. As far as I know, the rear bench is not available yet but will be soon.
Here is the video, bench shown at about the 5:15 mark.
