MINI Countryman Park Lane revealed at Geneva 2015

MINI's small crossover revives Park Lane special edition, gets distinctive styling add-ons and extra kit

MINI Countryman Park Lane

Not to be outdone by the huge variety of new metal at this year's Geneva Motor Show, MINI is unveiling a new special edition of its Countryman compact crossover. Set to go on sale in July, the Park Lane edition gets a raft of exterior and interior changes to add desirability.

Named after the location in Mayfair, London, MINI's Park Lane special edition first saw service on the original Alec Issigonis-designed car in 1987. Exterior add-ons for the Countryman include a two-tone paintjob: Earl Grey metallic paint is combined with Oak Red for the roof, mirror caps and body stripes on the bonnet and doors.

Additional aesthetic upgrades over the standard car include 18-inch alloy wheels in a dark grey hue, and the MINI ALL4 exterior package which brings silver trim for the front and rear bumper apron and side sills. Park Lane emblems also feature around the car, while LED foglamps and indicators also feature.

The interior features new silver and grey trim across the dashboard and centre console, while the Carbon Black trim on the doors complements the look. The Countryman Park Lane is available with an extensive array of optional equipment, including the firm's popular Chili Pack.

The special edition can be had with the firm's range of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, in either front or optional four-wheel drive. The 189bhp turbocharged Cooper S variant can also be had with the treatment. Prices are unconfirmed as yet, but we'll hear more from the Geneva show.
