Just 88 units available of Countryman variant.
Mini Malaysia has launched the limited-edition Mini Countryman Park Lane that lends its name from Park Lane, one of the most distinguished addresses in London, and also the location of a prestigious and legendary Mini showroom.
The Countryman Park Lane is limited to just 88 units. It will carry a Park Lane badge with a distinct design and colour concept as well as high-end equipment features to further assert itself in the Countryman line-up.
On the outside, it suits up with the Mini ALL4 Bodykit in Earl Grey body finish while its roof and exterior mirror caps are covered with an entirely new colour variant of Oak Red with the same shade applied to stripes on the bonnet, tailgate and lower side section as well as inlays in the characteristic side turn indicator surrounds.
Filling the wheel arches are 18-inch light alloy wheels in a Turbo Fan Dark Grey design. The exterior visual package includes silver body elements for the front and rear apron as well as side sills.
The cabin is enhanced with Cross Stripe Gray shading for interior surfaces and down tubes while the door bezel and cockpit surfaces are coloured Oxide Gray. An automatic air-conditioning system which rapidly adjusts and maintains the temperature in the interior also houses a built-in active carbon filter which protects passengers against unpleasant odours from the outside.
Entertainment is courtesy of the Mini Visual Boost with a 6.5-inch high-resolution colour LCD screen that features the new Mini Connected app. Some of the new functions under the app include Mini Streetwise which helps drivers discover the best way to arrive at a destination with traffic prediction using trip details such as duration, fuel consumption and more; Sports Instruments which shows engine data including rev speed, torque, engine temperature and current engine output; and Force Meter which visualises all accelerating forces, using graphics to indicate longitudinal and lateral acceleration.
Additional new functionalities from the app comprise Mini Calendar which syncs smartphone calendar onto the Mini Centre Instrument, Mini Status which handily shows fuel range, fuel level, last recorded journey as well as directions and Mini Vital Statistics which shows record of how far the car has been driven as compared to the many other statistics.
A Bluetooth hands-free kit with USB audio interface and Mini Connected Ready Apps such as Spotify and GoPro are also standard.
Lending the Countryman Park Lane its hallmark go-kart driving feel, motivation comes from the 1.6-litre four-cylinder Mini TwinPower Turbo unit found in the rest of the Mini range. It delivers 190hp and 240Nm of torque with an overboost function pushing torque to 260Nm.
The Countryman Park Lane is bundled with the recently announced all-new four years unlimited mileage warranty with Free Scheduled Service program which offers an extended coverage where the service program also includes free scheduled service and maintenance of up to 60,000km in accordance with the Condition Based Service (CBS) system.
Service vehicle checks, engine oil service with oil filter and refill quantity are covered under the programme. Notably, components covered include air filters, micro filters, spark plugs, and brake fluids while components such as front and rear brakes including discs and pads as well as windscreen wipers are now excluded from the warranty and service program.
The Countryman Park lane is priced at RM253,888 OTR with insurance.
