MINI Malaysia has added updated features and new styling elements to both the 3 Door and 5 Door variants of the MINI hatchback, whilst rolling out its new Full Circle financing programme from BMW Credit Malaysia.
Overall model mix is trimmed, although the same engine choices remain. The Cooper Chili and Cooper S Wired models have been dropped from the 3 Door line-up, with a streamlined range now featuring the Cooper, Cooper S, and JCW. The 5 Door model is available in Cooper and Cooper S guise.
Powering the MINI family are turbocharged petrol mills from BMW’s B-series engine family, consisting of a 1.5-litre 3-cylinder with 136hp in the Cooper and a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder making 192hp and 231hp in the Cooper S and JCW models respectively. All variants are front wheel drive featuring a 6-speed automatic transmission as standard.
In appearance, both the 3 Door and 5 Door Cooper get high gloss black finish on their grilles and door handles. Lighting is also upgraded with LED headlights and fog lights standard for all variants.
A major upgrade in equipment is the fitment of keyless entry in both the 3 Door and 5 Door Cooper S as well as in the 3 Door-only John Cooper Works. The JCW variant also gets auto dimming rear view mirror together with a reverse camera. All variants receive dual zone climate control as standard.
Finally, an upgraded MINI Connect infotainment system features a 6.5-inch Visual Boost screen and is able, through the MINI Connected Ready App, to seamlessly integrate with mobile phones.
All variants of the MINI 3 Door and MINI 5 Door are covered by a 4-year unlimited mileage warranty and free servicing. Estimated prices (OTR without insurance) are:
- MINI Cooper 3 Door – RM188,888
- MINI Cooper S 3 Door – RM229,888
- MINI John Cooper Works 3 Door – RM293,888
- MINI Cooper 5 Door – RM193,888
- MINI Cooper S 5 Door – RM239,888
MINI Full Circle Programme
The MINI Full Circle Programme is a flexible financing scheme suited for customers with a limited ownership duration and mileage in mind. At the end of the financing tenure, customers have the option of returning the car with no further obligations, trade in for a new MINI, take complete ownership of the vehicle with a full settlement, or simply extend the loan tenure.
Through this financing programme, customers can effectively lock in the resale value of their vehicle at the end of the agreed upon tenure. Terms of the financing programme can be customized to the customer’s budget and intended length of usage of the vehicle.
