MINI Malaysia introduces New Limited Edition MINI Countryman Park Lane.
Only 88 units introduced to further reinforce all-round talent with individual style in the premium compact segment.
Kuala Lumpur, 21st January 2015 – MINI Malaysia today introduced the new and exclusive MINI Countryman Park Lane, the authentic ambassador for versatile driving excitement in the premium automotive compact segment.
Mr. Han Sang Yun, Managing Director and CEO of BMW Group Malaysia said, “The MINI Countryman was the first MINI with four doors, a large tailgate, five seats and with so much more interior flexibility. Since its first introduction globally and in Malaysia, the MINI Countryman has paved its way into the lives of new customer segments and has enabled the brand to establish a secure standing in the premium compact segment. Today, for the first time, we are pleased to share its success with a special edition model to further meet the multi-faceted mobility needs of MINI fans here in the country.”
The new MINI Countryman Park Lane lends its name from Park Lane, one the most distinguished addresses in London, at the respected suburb of Mayfair and where a prestigious and legendary MINI showroom is also located. While this is the third time that Park Lane has lent its name to an exclusive edition MINI model since 1987 and 2005, this is, nevertheless, the first time the name has been bestowed on the MINI Countryman.
Bold athletic flair and supreme versatility define the character of this rare MINI Countryman which is only limited to 88 units. With unmistakable design, premium quality, an interior concept of exemplary versatility and typical MINI driving fun on the road, the overall package offered by the MINI Countryman has taken on an irresistible front-line force from the very outset.
Now, the MINI Countryman with the Park Lane badge will carry a distinct design and colour concept as well as high-end equipment features to further assert itself as an all-round talent with individual style. The new MINI Countryman Park Lane is suited 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, giving a unique stylish presence to the new MINI.
Its bold, distinguished and classy character is further emphasized with Oak Red stripes on the bonnet, tailgate and lower side section. The characteristic side turn indicator surrounds in chrome known as side scuttles also comprise an inlay in Oak Red with an exclusive emblem bearing the inscription “Park Lane”, as do the cockpit surface and door sills.
Its classic athletic character, meanwhile, is boldly accentuated with 18-inch light alloy wheels in Turbo Fan Dark Grey design. Decked out in the exterior visual package including silver body elements for the front and rear apron as well as side sills, the new MINI Countryman Park Lane also exudes its high-end individual flair internally. The new MINI Countryman Park Lane sports interior surfaces and down tubes in Cross Stripe Grey while the door bezel and cockpit surfaces in Oxide Grey.
The interior of the new MINI Countryman Park Lane is further enhanced with an Ambient Lighting package, which creates colour highlights throughout the entire door panel in night mode. By simply using a toggle switch, the driver and passengers are able to choose their desired atmosphere through a spectrum of colours in understated style. Further to that is an automatic air-conditioning system which rapidly adjusts and maintains the temperature in the interior. It is also equipped with a built-in active carbon filter which protects passengers against unpleasant odours from the outside. The system also automatically deactivates air circulation when necessary.
The new MINI Countryman Park Lane also features the MINI Visual Boost with a 6.5 inch high-resolution colour LCD screen, which now features the new MINI Connected app that is available in iTunes and Google Play Store.
The new MINI Connected app offers a focused experience of MINI Connected and provides drivers with the most relevant information for everyday driving. This is made possible with new functionalities such as the MINI Streetwise, which help 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.
Other new functionalities from MINI Connected include 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.
