MINI press release :
MINI is giving its model family fresh impetus to continue its
of success in the small car segment with eye-catching design
modifications, additional engine variants, an all-new selection of
diesel engines and innovative new equipment features. The changes
introduced for the MINI, MINI Clubman and MINI Convertible underpin
both the unique premium character of the brand and the leading
position in the marketplace of each individual model in terms of
driving fun and efficiency. The range of typically MINI customisation
options available for the cars – which are each built precisely
according to customer specifications – is more appealing and
extensive than ever.
The global market launch on 18 September 2010 will see a brace of
all-new diesel engines joining the portfolio alongside the extensively
upgraded petrol engines already available for the MINI, MINI Clubman
and MINI Convertible. The four-cylinder diesel units stand out with
their greater pulling power, efficiency and smoothness –
qualities developed on the back of the BMW Group’s outstanding
expertise in the field of engine development. Added to which,
far-reaching MINIMALISM technology helps to reduce fuel consumption
and emissions. The new MINI One D (66 kW/90 hp) and new
MINI Cooper D (82 kW/112 hp) set a new benchmark in
efficiency with average fuel consumption of 3.8 litres per
100 kilometres (74.3 mpg imp) in the EU5 test cycle and CO2
emissions of 99 g/km. The variety within the model range is
broadened further by the new MINI One D Clubman and the new MINI
Cooper D Convertible, the first ever open-top MINI with a diesel
The modified design of the MINI, MINI Clubman and MINI Convertible
accurately showcases the increased sporting potential of the three
models through a number of details. At the same time, a selection of
clever touches, together with new wheel variants, paint finishes and
optional extras, accentuate both the elegance and premium character of
the MINI family. The new geometry of the front bumper on each model
allows them to meet increasingly stringent pedestrian protection
requirements even more effectively. All models come with LEDs for the
rear lights and brake lights, as well as the dynamic brake light
Inside the cars, the newly designed controls for the audio and air
conditioning systems ensure optimised functionality and ergonomics.
The cutting-edge exclusivity of the interior is further underlined by
extremely harmonious colours and high-quality materials. The
model-specific selection of seat upholstery, trim elements and Colour
Lines has also been extensively updated.
An array of new exterior paint finishes and wheel designs is
available for the MINI, MINI Clubman and MINI Convertible to
complement their refreshed styling. Chili Red is now available –
exclusively for the MINI John Cooper Works and MINI John Cooper Works
Clubman – as a contrast colour for the roof and exterior mirror
caps. Meanwhile, three “design worlds” – Rally,
Classic and Scene – have been introduced to underpin
configurations tailored to the customer’s personal style. Each
comprises a carefully coordinated combination of body paint finish,
roof colour, wheel design, upholstery, trim elements, Colour Line and
other visual features. The design worlds represent a recommendation
from the MINI design team and lend the car an extremely coherent
character. Additional – and almost limitless –
customisation can be achieved by varying the individual components of
each design world and by adding further equipment items and
accessories to the mix.
All models come with innovative equipment features aimed at enhancing
comfort, safety and the trademark MINI personality. For example, the
optional xenon headlights can be ordered with black headlight
reflectors or the Adaptive Headlights function, while an automatic
dimming function is available for both the rear-view and exterior
mirrors, and the optional ambient lighting uses a trio of LEDs to
provide a broad spectrum of colour. The MINI Clubman is now fitted
with a new retractable roller-type luggage compartment cover.
The new audio and navigation systems and the integration devices for
external music players and mobile phones both offer top-class
entertainment and communications capability. All the radio systems
come with an MP3-compatible CD player and an AUX IN connection, while
the MINI Visual Boost radio and MINI navigation system team up with a
high-resolution colour display in the Centre Speedo and a Bluetooth
hands-free system complete with USB audio interface. This allows video
files stored on a compatible Apple iPod to be viewed on the on-board
monitor. If the customer has ordered their car with the Bluetooth
mobile phone preparation including USB interface, both systems can be
hooked up with compatible mobile devices to allow functions such as
audio streaming via Bluetooth, album cover artwork display and
innovative office functions.
