MINI Clubman and Countryman gain new Shadow Edition trim

MINI Shadow Edition specification is unique to the UK and adds a range of equipment upgrades and darkened styling features

MINI has launched a new Shadow Edition specification for the Clubman estte and Countryman SUV. Prices start from £26,805 for the Clubman and £28,755 for the Countryman, with both cars receiving some extra standard equipment and blacked-out exterior styling.

The new Shadow Edition trim-level is based on MINI’s Sport specification. Upgrades include 19-inch alloy wheels, black metallic paint, LED headlights and a John Cooper Works styling pack, which adds a larger rear spoiler and more aggressive bumpers.

Both cars also feature unique graphics on their A-panels and bonnets, while the Countryman Shadow Edition gets a set of black roof rails fitted as standard. The same roof rails can also be specced on the Clubman, although they’re an optional extra.

Inside, MINI’s Shadow Edition models get sports seats, anthracite headlining, piano black dashboard trim and a John Cooper Works sports steering wheel apiece. A 5.5-inch digital instrument cluster and 8.8-inch infotainment system is also fitted as standard on both cars.

The specification continues with customisable ambient lighting, rear parking sensors, real time traffic information and MINI branded puddle lighting. MINI also offers a range of option packs, such as the Comfort Pack, which adds automatic air conditioning, heated seats, a front centre armrest and branded floor mats.

MINI’s Navigation Plus Pack adds a host of extra technology, including a head-up display, a wireless smartphone charger, improved bluetooth connectivity and some extra connected services such as Amazon Alexa.

Buyers have their choice of two engines. Entry-level Cooper models feature a turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol model, with 134bhp and 220Nm of torque. The unit is available with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Cooper S models are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which develops 176bhp and 280Nm of torque. The unit is hitched to a six-speed manual as standard and gives the Countryman a 0–62mph time of 7.5 seconds. The Clubman manages the same sprint in 7.3 seconds.
