MINI Countryman ALL4 Business edition revealed
As the current Countryman’s life draws to an end, MINI temps fleet buyers with a targeted special edition
An all-new MINI Countryman is set to be revealed in a little over a year, with sales starting in early 2017, but MINI’s focus is still firmly on the current model. To boost its appeal with fleet buyers, it’s introduced the MINI Countryman Cooper D ALL4 Business, fitted with a huge standard equipment list for less than ordering the individual options, to keep monthly repayments low.
Priced at £22,455 to buy outright (£1,400 more than the standard Cooper D ALL4 model), or from £199 per month (based on six months deposit and 35 monthly payments) it includes four-wheel drive and a 110bhp 1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel engine returning 60.1mpg and 123g/km of CO2.
Standard kit includes 17-inch alloys, sat-nav, parking sensors, air-con and a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel. Auto headlights and wipers, a storage pack and velour floor mats are also thrown in. Chris Brownridge, MINI’s UK boss said: “The new ALL4 Business model has been specifically developed to cater for the needs of businesses with high residual values and low emissions, while also offering something fun and exciting for drivers. MINI has grown in popularity within the UK fleet market since the launch of the 5-door hatch last year, which has opened the brand up to new customers.”
