Launched in our Philippine market last June 2014, the New MINI took its already famous rep and catapulted it to new heights. What was once a simple back-to-basics car is now an automotive icon of the new age. Set to be the New Original, the New MINI sports a much more action-packed facelift, with emphasis on driving fun and looking awesome at it. Pulling heaps of inspiration from its predecessor, the New MINI stands a bit taller and wider, yet still possesses that distinct “go-kart” aura its lineage is well known for. On-board, the New MINI seats four people in standard leather seats, and despite its small size, it still has ample head/leg room. An array of cool entertainment and connectivity features are also present in the New MINI, and most can be managed via the car’s huge round center-mounted instrument panel.
The New MINI comes alive with pure go-kart DNA via either a 1.5L inline 3-cylinder 12-valve turbo or a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder 16-valve turbo, fused to a choice between a 6-Speed MT or a 6-Speed AT with Manual Mode. Fast, light-weight, and agile, the New MINI redefines itself for the 21st century in style and pure driving fun.
