BMW own the "Maxi" name: if you check the dimensions the "Mini Countryman 2017 is larger!!

Length: Mini 4.299m. . . . . Maxi 4.039m
Width: Mini 1.557m . . . . . Maxi 1.626m
Height: Mini 1.559m . . . . Maxi 1.384m

Cube: 10.43 cu m . . . . . . 9.1 cu m

So yes, to call the Countryman a Mini is an oxymoron...
Mind you "Mini Maxi" or even The Maxi, by Mini would sound a bit odd...

Pedant mode:

It's called MINI.
BMW specifically used all capital letters to distinguish it from the original shape Mini.

My school run tanks (MB G-Class, Defender 110) both narrower than this MINI.

It's girth, not length, that counts... (for impeding two-way traffic flow in built-up areas - what did you think I meant?)
