New MINI Edition models set to ramp up the style factor
MINI is raising driving fun, expressive design, premium quality and individual style to a new level with its new Edition models, which are set to arrive in New Zealand later this year.
The MINI 3 and 5 door Hatch – including the fully electric MINI Electric Hatch – and MINI Convertible will be offered in the Resolute Edition, while the MINI Countryman will be released in the Untamed Edition.
The exclusive and precisely coordinated design and the equipment features emphasise each model’s characteristic elements.
The Resolute Edition clearly emphasises the individuality, traditional style, self-confidence and unmistakable charisma of the original, while the versatile qualities of the MINI Clubman – in combination with its stylish design and unique body concept – are highlighted in the Untold Edition.
In the Untamed Edition, the MINI Countryman sharpens its profile as the perfect companion for heading out on adventures beyond the city limits.
Each special edition has its own model-specific characteristics with attractive body paint finishes and alloy wheels, high-quality interior design and exclusive decorative elements for the exterior and interior.
The MINI Resolute Edition: Pure driving joy, unparalleled charisma.
As the original in the premium small car segment, the MINI combines a thrilling drive with an unconventional appeal, characterised by its hallmark design and modern premium character. The MINI 3 door with its classic body concept, just like the MINI 5 door with its extended functionality, stands for experience-oriented urban mobility.
The true MINI feeling is made up of Joie de vivre and openness – traits that can also be applied to the world of electric mobility in the form of the MINI Electric Hatch.
In addition, the MINI Convertible complements the brand’s unmistakable appearance with a particularly extravagant, youthfully fresh look.
Appealing design features and colour combinations.
The exclusive design and equipment features of the Resolute Edition reinforce the hallmark characteristics of the MINI models and combine them with modern, high-quality design accentuations.
Exterior design features include both a traditional-style colour scheme and chrome-free elements, which will feature on future MINI models for reasons of sustainability. The Rebel Green variant signals pure sportiness and was previously reserved exclusively for the MINI John Cooper Works. It combines with a Pepper White roof finish and Pepper White exterior mirror caps for the MINI 3 door and MINI 5 door. On the MINI Convertible Resolute Edition, the electrically operated soft top and the exterior mirror caps are finished in black.
Hallmark design features are finished in exclusive Resolute Bronze. This includes the headlight surrounds, the radiator grille and rear lights, the side scuttles on the front side panels, the handles of the doors and tailgate and, on the MINI Cooper S, the air intakes in the front apron and the fuel filler cap.
The brand logos and model lettering provide a striking contrast, as do the inner frame of the radiator grille, the tailpipe trim of the exhaust system and the horizontal radiator grille strut of the MINI Cooper S in Piano Black. On the MINI 3 door and the MINI 5 door in the Resolute Edition, there is also a black strip running around the lower edge of the windows.
Both the bonnet stripes and the door sill panels of the Edition vehicles feature a pattern of parallel lines with a colour gradient between a light and a dark shade of gold as well as the lettering “RESOLUTE”. The asymmetrical design gives them a particularly high-quality and unconventional look in hallmark MINI style.
The discreetly sporty appearance of the edition vehicles is completed by 18-inch alloy wheels in Pulse Spoke Black design. The MINI Electric Hatch features 17-inch alloy wheels in Electric Collection Spoke design. Alternatively, 17-inch alloy wheels in Tentacle Spoke Black design are offered for all models.
The exclusive flair of the interior of the edition vehicles is enhanced by sports seats in Leather Lounge Carbon Black or Light Chequered fabric/leatherette, which are combined with black armrests and knee rolls. This colour scheme harmonises perfectly with the Rebel Green paint finish and the black and gold exterior design features.
The MINI Yours Leather Lounge variant is also available on request in Carbon Black with particularly striking stitching and piping as well as a perforated Union Jack motif on the headrests. The Nappa sports leather steering wheel bears an edition emblem on the lower spoke, and the roofliner of the MINI 3 door and MINI 5 door models is finished in anthracite.
As with the available seat options, the interior surfaces created especially for the Resolute Edition emphasise the cars’ premium style. Parallel and evenly curved lines in a light shade of gold form a noble pinstripe pattern on the black background of the surfaces.
At the same time, they pick up on the structure of the bonnet stripes. The specific design features are staged with the help of the lighting package, whose LED units provide targeted interior illumination, as well as with the Ambient Light, which also includes a laser-engraved ring for the central instrument, light piping in the doors and cockpit area as well as illuminated door handles and door entry areas. In addition, the MINI Driving Modes are part of the equipment package for the Resolute Edition.
The Resolute Edition’s exclusive design features make up a carefully crafted package for premium exterior and interior style. They also tie in particularly harmoniously with the clear and purist MINI design language.
In the cabin, the classic sporty flair of the colours and materials is combined with advanced digital technology. The latest generation of the MINI operating system optimises the quick and intuitive control of vehicle functions, audio program, communication, navigation and apps. Live widgets on the 8.8-inch touch display of the central instrument are used to activate the desired menu item, which can be selected with a swiping motion similar to that on a smartphone.
The MINI Untold Edition: Sporty understatement.
The MINI Clubman is a phenomenon in the premium compact segment. Its modern interpretation of the classic shooting-brake concept combines tradition and understatement with progressive and lifestyle-oriented characteristics. The unique body concept with four doors, a particularly long roofline and the split doors at the rear comprising two side-opening wings not only give the MINI Clubman an extravagant appearance but also provide a high degree of functionality. Its interior offers seating for five and a generous, variable storage volume that can be expanded from 360 to up to 1250 litres.
The Untold Edition emphasises the role of the MINI Clubman as the stylish individualist in its class in an exclusive fashion. The refined sophistication of its design is combined with a powerful sports look in a new way. The Untold Edition is available for two model variants. The MINI Cooper S Clubman and the MINI John Cooper Works Clubman, the later with its range topping 225kW engine.
Distinctive body features, stylish interior design.
The unmistakable appearance of the MINI Clubman is emphasised by the specific design features of the Untold Edition to give it charismatic presence. The Sage Green metallic paintwork, available for the first time on the MINI Clubman, and the distinctive design of the front and rear aprons inspired by the John Cooper Works Aerodynamic Kit provide a stylishly sporty look.
The hallmark MINI surrounds on the lower body sections are not in black as usual, but in a dark shade of green for the first time. The five narrow, parallel sport stripes running centrally across the bonnet and roof are also specific features of the Untold Edition. The side scuttles, manufactured using a high-quality 3D printing process, have a specific stripe pattern. This exclusive graphic also features in the logo projected from the door mirrors and on the door sill trims.
The 18-inch alloy wheels in Untold Spoke design with bicolour surfaces in the Jet Black/Refined Brass combination have also been developed exclusively for the edition vehicles. The colour scheme, which is based on refined brass, is also used for the radiator grille surround and the radiator crossbar on the MINI Cooper S Clubman, and MINI John Cooper Works Clubman models, as well as for the “Clubman” lettering on the split doors at the rear.
A black paint finish for the roof and exterior mirror caps is available as an option. The Piano Black exterior equipment with door handles, exhaust tailpipes, MINI logos and model lettering in black is an integral part of the Untold Edition.
Sports seats in the exclusive MINI Yours Leather Lounge Sage Green version transfer the powerful exterior character to the interior. Light-coloured seams and piping as well as textile inserts in the upper and outer areas of the seat backrests create a stylish seat surface look.
Alternatively, sports seats are also available in the MINI Yours Leather Lounge Carbon Black variant. In the cockpit, illuminated accent strips in Sage Green and exclusively designed interior surfaces with a subtle striped pattern and green colour scheme are combined. Another stylish visual accentuation are the surrounds of the air vents in Refined Brass. The bottom spoke of the Nappa sports leather steering wheel as well as the floor mats feature an edition emblem.
The MINI Clubman in the Untold Edition also offers particularly high-quality equipment in addition to the exclusive design features. Beyond the standard equipment of the premium compact model, it also includes Adaptive LED Headlights, the MINI Excitement Package and the MINI Driving Modes as well as the anthracite-coloured roof lining and the Interior Light Package.
The MINI Untamed Edition: Ready for adventures beyond the city limits.
The biggest model in the MINI range is also the most versatile: The MINI Countryman has established itself in the premium compact segment as a particularly stylish all-rounder. Four doors, a big tailgate, five seats and an exceptionally variable interior with a luggage compartment volume of 450 to 1390 litres ensure a high degree of practicality.
The optional ALL4 all-wheel drive distributes power as required in all weather and road conditions. The MINI Countryman handles everyday urban traffic just as confidently as it does excursions that take it onto unpaved terrain. It also plays a pioneering role on the path to particularly sustainable mobility. The MINI Countryman Hybrid enables locally emission-free driving fun in city traffic and beyond thanks to its plug-in hybrid drive. Its electric range, determined in the WLTP test cycle, is up to 51 kilometres.
The character of the explorer and adventurer is emphasised even more intensively with the new Untamed Edition for the MINI Countryman. The exclusive design and equipment features of the edition vehicles highlight the robust look and off-road potential. The Untamed Edition is available for the MINI Cooper S Countryman, and for the MINI Countryman Hybrid.
Robust look, exclusive details.
Thanks to its exterior design specifically geared towards robust versatility, the MINI Countryman in the Untamed Edition encourages you more than ever to head out into nature and explore completely new roads and paths spontaneously. The exclusive Momentum Grey metallic paintwork give this MINI Countryman a unique appearance as do the specific trim elements in body colour.
The harmonious colour scheme emphasises the clear design language of the MINI Countryman’s exterior. Both the lower air intake surround including the suggested underride guard, the air curtain inserts in the front apron as well as the side skirts, the reflector inserts and the lower insert in the rear apron are painted in Momentum Grey metallic. And a glance at the MINI brand logos on the bonnet and tailgate reveals that the black lettering and graphic elements of the emblem are also combined with a background in body colour.
Four diagonal stripes, each in Frozen Bluestone, in the lower area of the doors underline that this car is ready to take on any road or path. The 18-inch alloy wheels in Untamed 2-tone design with burnished surfaces have been developed exclusively for the Edition vehicles. In addition to the roof and the exterior mirror caps, the roof rails and the headlight housings of the MINI Countryman in the Untamed Edition are also finished in black. The Piano Black Exterior option, which is also included in the equipment range of the edition vehicles, adds further black design features.
Like the door sills, the side scuttles feature a graphic pattern inspired by a mountain landscape and the “Untamed” inscription. Corresponding lettering is also featured on the rear side windows. In addition to the inlays and the carrier plates of the side scuttles, the E logo on the tailgate of the plug-in hybrid model MINI Cooper SE Countryman ALL4 is also in Frozen Bluestone.
Nature-inspired shades of green and blue dominate the interior design for the MINI Countryman in the Untamed Edition. The exclusive Highland Green colour is combined with blue and green contrast stitching on the surfaces of the sports seats in the MINI Yours Leather Lounge finish. Alternatively, MINI Yours Leather Lounge Carbon Black trim is also available. The illuminated decorative trim in Frozen Bluestone is printed with a landscape pattern analogous to the door sill trims. For the first time, a large-scale graphic serves as a motif in this area of the interior instead of a uniform structure. An additional effect is achieved by the “Untamed” lettering visible in the night design. The accent strips in the cockpit and on the centre console are painted in Frozen Blue metallic, the door trim strips in Arctic Silver metallic and the surrounds of the air vents in high-gloss black.
In addition, the MINI Countryman edition model features emblems with the “Untamed” lettering on the seats and in the bottom spoke of the Nappa sports leather steering wheel, while the floor mats feature a three-dimensionally embossed landscape pattern in the style of the door sills with decorative trims. An anthracite-coloured roof lining provides an eye-catching finishing touch.
The characteristic graphic of the mountain landscape also adorns the discreet pins in the outer area of the seat backs in a stylised form.
