MINI chose the 2015 Geneva Motor Show to showcase their latest models, emphasising style and fun. The selection of models that were unveiled – the tough cookie MINI Countryman Park Lane, and the fun MINI John Cooper Works – highlighted the true MINI experience, from striking design, to lively handling and high quality.
The new MINI Countryman Park Lane in particular revelled at making its debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, where it showed its appetite for being the ideal all-round five-seater. Coming with four doors and an optional 4WD system, it comes with the kind of agility that sees it able to take on any type of terrain, from on-road to off-road, to mud and smooth-as-heck asphalt. The new MINI John Cooper Works, meanwhile, seeks to make driving around the city a breeze thanks to a fun and lively performance, as well as a powerful engine – the brand’s most powerful yet in its serial production variants.
The New MINI Countryman Park Lane
We all knew it wouldn’t be long before MINI entered the premium compact segment, and we all got the feeling they’d master it. Just a feeling, you know? With the new MINI Countryman Park Lane, the brand have conceived a car which weds together the brand’s unique design with healthy copings of interior space and versatility. Unusually for a MINI, the drivers seat is raised higher, which, along with the introduction of the 4WD system, gives a whole new meaning to MINI’s renowned agile drive response. And it’s awesome.
The colour concept found here is totally exclusive to the new MINI Countryman Park Lane. An Earl Grey metallic body finish is complimented by an Oak Red roof that also finds its way into the exterior mirror caps. Oak Red sport stripes are also available as an extra should buyers fancy them. Meanwhile, 18” alloys help to define this car’s athletic stance, whilst optional features that are available to further enhance the new MINI Countryman’s assertiveness include LED fog lamps, sports seats, and a sports steering wheel.
