Priced at RM253,888, limited to 88 units in Malaysia, and named after one of the most distinguished addresses in London, the MINI Countryman Park Lane sports a distinct livery and colour scheme that is meant to capture the prestige of its namesake.
The Countryman Park Lane is suited up with a MINI ALL4 bodykit in Earl Grey body finish, while its roof and exterior mirror caps are covered in a new colour variant known as Oak Red. Its stylistic presence is further enhanced with the addition of Oak Red stripes on the bonnet, tailgate, and lower side sections. The Countryman’s characteristic side turn indicator now features an inlay of Oak Red with an exclusive emblem bearing the “Park Lane” inscription. The emblem is also found on the cockpit surface and door sills.
To complement its Oak Red highlights, the Countryman Park Lane is accentuated with 18-inch rims in the Turbo Fan Dark Grey design, with silver body elements fitted to the front and rear apron as well as the side sills.
It isn’t all just exterior set dressings that sets the Countryman Park Lane apart. Inside the Countryman Park Lane comes fitted with the Ambient Lighting package, which creates colour highlights throughout the entire door panel in night mode, the MINI Visual Boost that adds a 6.5-inch LCD screen which can be paired up with the MINI Connected app.
Downloadable from iTunes and Google Play Store, the MINI Connected app grants users access to a myriad features such as the MINI Streetwise navigation feature, Sports Instruments engine information display, Force Meter accelerating force visualizer, MINI Calendar that syncs the smartphone’s calendar to the MINI Centre Instrument display, and MINI Status and MINI Vital Statistics which will list down information on fuel, range, and distance travelled.
The Countryman Park Lane is the third exclusive edition MINI model since 1987 and 2005 to be featuring the Park Lane name. Park Lane is the suburb where a prestigious and legendary MINI showroom is located.
Powering the Countryman Park Lane is the same drivetrain found in the Cooper S Countryman, with a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine generating 190hp and 260Nm of torque. Coupled to a six-speed automatic, the Countryman Park Lane will accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 7.8 seconds, achieve a top speed of 212km/h, and return an average fuel consumption of 7.5L/100km.
Following MINI Malaysia announcement of its 4 Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty with Free Scheduled Service program last week, all 88 units of the MINI Countryman Park Lane will come covered by the new maintenance program.
