2016 Mini Cooper Countryman Park Lane edition unveiled
Boasting a host of unique styling touches, the 2016 Mini Cooper Countryman Park Lane made its debut in Geneva. To be offered in Cooper, Cooper S and Cooper S All4 models, this latest variation on the theme takes its name from a high-end district in the London borough of Mayfair. The Countryman will be the third Mini model to carry this distinctive badging, which was first used by the automaker in 1987.
The basic changes on the Park Lane Mini start with unique exterior colors that match an Earl Grey Metallic primary finish with Oak Red accents on various body bits. That tony look is set off with bespoke badging and side scuttle trim, white directional signal indicators and lightweight 18-inch Dark Grey Turbo Fan alloy wheels. The Mini All4 nets its own exterior trim that's optional on the Cooper/Cooper S, while supplemental Oak Red sport stripes on the hood, deck and lower body are optional across the board. Inside, the Park Lane has Oxide Silver door-bezel and cockpit trim, with Cross Stripe Grey for the center console surrounds paired with Carbon Black inlays that also appear on the door panels to add a more upscale character. Lest one forget, the dash and door-sill plates also carry Park Lane badging.
Like any other Mini, the new Park Lane will offer plenty of personalization potential that includes the nifty roof rack seen here. Arriving at dealers in July, pricing for all members of the 2016 Mini Park Lane lineup will be announced closer to their actual on-sale date.
