Jakarta. BMW Group Indonesia introduced the latest model in the MINI family, MINI Countryman, in a media briefing today.  This is the first model in the MINI range with four doors and a wide-opening tailgate, combined with increased ground clearance and a raised seating position.


“MINI Countryman still offers the same driving thrills that put a grin on your face the way that all MINIs do,” said Ramesh Divyanathan, President Director of BMW Group Indonesia. “And the model also brings new level of space and versatility to the range that will attract customers in Indonesia who are new to the MINI brand.”


MINI Countryman bridges the gap between the classic MINI concept and a Sports Activity Vehicle, providing the unique driving excitement so typical of MINI to new target groups desiring extra space and flexibility.  MINI Countryman also offers the best possible passenger safety, having received a rating of 5 stars in the Euro NCAP crash test.


The MINI Countryman expresses the defining virtues of the brand in terms of design, premium quality, handling, efficiency and the scope for customization – and does so in an absorbingly individual way. 


The interior of the MINI Countryman is in keeping with the brand’s familiar style but boasts a selection of new design and functional elements. The slightly raised seating position allows easy entry, optimizes the driver’s view over the road and reinforces the powerful character of the new model.


The MINI Countryman will be available with two gasoline engines. All the drive units are sourced from a new generation of engines optimized using the BMW Group’s development expertise.


The output ranges from 120 hp in the MINI Cooper Countryman to 184 hp in the MINI Cooper S Countryman. With its twin-scroll turbocharger and direct injection now complemented by fully variable valve management, the 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol engine in the range-topping model, MINI Cooper S Countryman, offers by far the best balance between output and fuel consumption in its displacement class. The engine is equipped with six-speed automatic transmission with Steptronic.

The front-end of the MINI Cooper Countryman is characterized by three horizontal Silver grille slats, creating a free-floating impression.  The exterior body is accentuated with chrome lines to give a striking presence.  The model features roof in body color, roof rails, electrical glass roof and mirror cap in body color.


Exterior options include the range of non-metallic colors of Pure Red, Bright Yellow, Light Coffee, Surf Blue and Light White.


The model comes as standard with five seats, equipped with central armrest. The rear seats can be moved forwards and backwards individually or in a 60 : 40 split; the angle of the backrests can be adjusted and the backrests can be folded down either individually or in a 40 : 20 : 40 split, all of which allows luggage capacity to be increased from 350 liters to a maximum 1,170 liters.


Sport seats for driver and front passenger, sports leather steering wheel with gearshift paddles and multifunction steering wheel with cruise control and sport button are featured in the interior. The seats are exceedingly stylish with a cloth/leather combination with Parallel Lines in Carbon Black/Light Tobacco or Carbon Black/Pure Red, with Colour Line options Carbon Black, Dark Tobacco, Polar Beige, Pure Red or Surf Blue.  The interior color comes with Polar Beige or Dark Tobacco, while the interior surface offers Dark Silver or Piano Black. 


The entertainment and communication system in MINI Cooper Countryman features Radio MINI Boost CD, as well as Bluetooth hands-free with USB interface.

Clip-in fixtures have a flexible range of positioning that allow the storage area to be divided up as desired and items to be kept close at hand at all times. Additionally, the two-part Center Rail creates an unconventional visual and functional connection between the front and rear compartments.


The interior also features sports seats for driver and front passenger, sports leather steering wheel with gearshift paddles and multifunction steering wheel with cruise control and light package.


The seats are covered with Leather Lounge with color options of Carbon Black or Light Coffee but also Leather Gravity in Polar Beige.  The interior color comes with Polar Beige or Dark Tobacco, while the interior surface is Black Checkered.

MINI Connected

MINI Connected now gives Apple iPhone users access to innovative functions designed to enhance driving fun, entertainment and social networking. MINI has once again taken the lead in the intelligent link-up of the car with the outside world. It will allow users to send posts while on the move via online social networks Facebook and Twitter. With the Dynamic Music function, meanwhile, every journey in the MINI can be enjoyed to the soundtrack of specially arranged songs, whose rhythm and sound volume adjust to the driving style at any one time. 


Additionally, MINI now has Driving Excitement which adds to the total spirited driving experience.  A condition check initially informs the driver of the engine temperature, fuel level, and outside driving conditions.  Then, a Digital Sports Instrument shows the actual horsepower and torque being used.  The driver can also select the Force Meter, to show the directional G-forces during enthusiastic cornering, accelerating, and braking.  The system allows all this without distracting the driver from the road.


MINI Countryman  also features the highest standard safety equipment, including DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) and DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) that comprises ABS anti-lock brakes, Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Cornering Brake Control (CBC), Brake Assist and Hill Assist.  The models  are also equipped with 6 airbags as standard.
