Tall Family - Countryman?

Hi, I want to return to the mini brand. The Countryman calls! But is it big enough?
We are a family of 4:
Him: 6ft 6"
Me 5ft 5"
Twins currently 5ft 9" & 5 ft 11"

The twins are leaving for college in 1 month. We have/need only one car.

Mini History:

Cooper S - I loved this car. My husband claims it had more leg-room than he needed, but twins were growing, so upgraded to .....

Clubman JCW - loved it but twins had a rapid growth spurt and at the time we were doing regular long road trips so (we regret) we had to leave the brand.

Now as we are about to be empty nesters I am considering the Countryman ALL4.

Will it be big enough for a 6ft 6" driver? (surely yes)
The occasional 4 hour road trip with big twins?

I know this topic has been posted before but it was an old thread and I would appreciate your thoughts on the newer models.

Thanks

Welcome! I was suprised to see how big the new Cooper is in the back - my son is 5'8". Using that as a benchmark, I would think the Countryman would be perfect.
