For adventurers and wanderers: The new MINI Countryman Boardwalk.

BMW:For adventurers and wanderers: The new MINI Countryman Boardwalk.

Munich. The new MINI
Countryman is as equipped for the challenges of everyday life as it is
for spontaneous excursions beyond the city limits and adventures on
unpaved terrain. Its versatile character is now enhanced with a
stylish touch. An exterior finish in Deep Laguna metallic and
exclusive design features for the exterior and interior make the new
MINI Countryman Boardwalk stand-out both on the metropolitan
promenades and during trips to the beach. The model is produced as a
limited edition, is immediately available and can be ordered in three
model variants.

The Deep Laguna metallic body colour effectively showcases the
powerfully modelled surfaces of the MINI Countryman. The high-quality
shimmering blue tone was previously developed exclusively for the
MINI Convertible Sidewalk edition model, also a limited edition, and
sparked enthusiasm in the MINI community. Now the wish of many MINI
fans to make this colour available for the new MINI Countryman is
fulfilled. It is combined with a black contrast finish on the roof and
exterior mirror caps.

With this colour combination, the new MINI Countryman Boardwalk is
eye-catching from every angle. The name of the edition refers to the
promenades of traditional seaside resorts in the British home of the
MINI brand. The often mile-long walkways, which connect spas and serve
as access to the typical English piers, were originally the preferred
stage for large social performances. The characteristic pattern of the
wooden beams laid longitudinally and diagonally on the promenades now
serve as the inspiration for the emblem of the new edition. A stripe
pattern in Deep Laguna metallic and black metallic with the lettering
“BOARDWALK” adorns the frame of the side trims known as Side Scuttles.
Patterns and inscriptions can also be found on the entry bars. In
addition, the side flanks of the roof at the rear side windows and the
interior bar on the passenger side each bear a logo with the name of
the edition model.

The new MINI Countryman Boardwalk is available in three model
variants. In the MINI Cooper Countryman Boardwalk (fuel consumption
combined: 5.9 – 5.6 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined:
135 – 129 g/km) a three-cylinder petrol engine with MINI TwinPower
Turbo technology produces a maximum output of 100 kW/136 hp. A
four-cylinder petrol engine with 131 kW/178 hp drives the MINI Cooper
S Countryman Boardwalk (fuel consumption combined: 6.5 – 6.3 l/100 km;
CO2 emissions combined: 148 – 144 g/km) and MINI Cooper S
Countryman ALL4 Boardwalk (fuel consumption combined:
6.5 – 6.2 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined:
149 – 142 g/km). As an alternative to the standard 6-speed manual
transmission, a 7-speed Steptronic transmission with dual clutch is
available for both the MINI Cooper Countryman Boardwalk and the MINI
Cooper S Countryman Boardwalk. The all-wheel-drive edition model is
equipped with an 8-speed Steptronic transmission as standard. With
numerous other options, the exclusive appearance of the edition
vehicles can be personalised for added driving pleasure and comfort.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were
measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC)
2007/715 as amended. The figures are calculated using a vehicle
fitted with basic equipment in Germany, the ranges stated take into
account differences in selected wheel and tyre sizes as well as the
optional equipment. They may change during configuration.

The figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP
test cycle and adapted to NEDC for comparison purposes. In these
vehicles, different figures than those published here may apply for
the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are
(also) based on CO2 emissions.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and
official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the

of new cars”, available at sales outlets, from Deutsche Automobil
