Even since the original MINI, customisation has helped make this car so iconic. Today, the all new MINI takes its personalisation programme to the next level.
With four new interior and exterior design concept, these are there to help owners experience the more powerful, more refined and more comfortable MINI in their own way.
The third generation MINI is completely new from the group up and the four new characters are completely bespoke with Vivid Green, Speedwell Blue, John Cooper Works Pro and Essential Black.
Similar to BMW’s Modern, Luxury and Sport lines, these characters give you access to a slightly different set of features.
Vivid Green: gives accessories a youthful, fresh look with striking dashes of rich green against a black background.
Speedwell Blue: adds a touch of sporty flair and a sense of tradition, thanks to a reinterpretation of the red, white and blue of the Union Jack, combined with a warm brown tone.
John Cooper Works Pro: reflects a passion for racing with a vibrant chequered flag in black, red and grey.
Essential Black: an understated and elegant design that’s pared back to a chequered pattern which runs diagonally.
Always a popular choice with customers of previous generation MINIs, were the mirror caps, both internal and external. These are now available for the new MINI in the design lines Vivid Green, Speedwell Blue and John Cooper Works Pro. They are also in Union Jack, Black Jack, Chequered Flag Black/Grey, Chequered Flag Black/White and John Cooper Works Pro Carbon. Two additional finishes are new to the programme, Big Bang and Gold Jack.
The selection of roof graphics is more varied than ever before. They are available in nine variants for the standard roof and six for the optional glass roof. Both roof versions can be enhanced with the motifs Union Jack, Black Jack, Gold Jack, Chequered Flag Grey, Chequered Flag White. Additional options for the standard roof are Speedwell Blue, Vivid Green, John Cooper Works Pro and Chequered Flag Black.
Design accents can be added to the side indicator surrounds. In addition to the Union Jack, Black Jack, Chequered Flag Black/Grey and Chequered Flag Black/White, they are now available in the MINI Characters Vivid Green, Speedwell Blue, John Cooper Works Pro.
Side graphics are another buyers’ favourite. Made from high-quality foil, they run from the side indicators to the rear wheel arches. For the new MINI they are available in Vivid Green, Speedwell Blue and John Cooper Works Pro, as well as a new version of the John Cooper Works design in the colours Chilli Red and Jet Black.
Two Genuine MINI Accessories are offered exclusively in the design line Essential Black, and their function is to protect the luggage compartment from getting dirty. Both the floor mat and tray are a perfect fit, made from an anti-slip and waterproof material with straps for easy removal. The luggage compartment floor mat has a textile strip surround, while the tray includes partitions made of brushed aluminium.
Other personalisation options include sun protection elements for the rear window and rear side windows, door sill cover strips backlit with LEDs, additional main beam headlamps and a synthetic fabric car cover. Each is available in up to four MINI Character design lines.
The Genuine MINI Accessories programme also features a selection of newly-developed light alloy wheels. For the first time, it includes 18-inch forged aluminium rims in cross-spoke design. There are also 17-inch light alloy wheels available in multi-spoke design, which are available in Bright Silver metallic or Liquid Black. For an extra touch of class, the hub caps on all MINI light alloy wheels can be finished in Chilli Red, Bright Orange, Apple Green or Bright Yellow.
More innovative is the MINI key cap, making its debut on this car. It features an integrated NFC (Near Field Communication) chip for non-contact data exchange between the MINI key and the customer’s smartphone. After synchronisation at the press of a button, smartphone functions such as a Bluetooth connection, volume control or app launch can be activated via the key. This means that the MINI driver’s individual settings for features such as MINI Connected Services are detected immediately the driver gets into the car.
Whilst we don’t have pricing for these packages aren’t currently available, expect them to add just a bit to the price tag for one of the new MINIs.
