MINI Malaysia Unveils the New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition

MINI, the most sophisticated compact premium automotive brand in Malaysia recently introduced the New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition - a limited-edition dramatic all-black design, reminiscent of the stunningly dark shrub land of Blackheath, South East London in the United Kingdom.

“Last year, the MINI Countryman accounted for more than 50% of the total deliveries of the MINI brand here, with over 600 units delivered nationwide. This remarkable performance underlines the success of the MINI brand in Malaysia and we are thrilled to introduce a new edition to the MINI Countryman family, a debut in the Southeast Asian region – The New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition!” said Harald Hoelzl, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia.

The New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition, the first special edition of its generation, arrives with blacked-out design features – the highly-coveted stylistic choice for timeless elegance. The New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition is the first MINI Countryman to be powered by the newly updated MINI TwinPower Turbo engine, paired with the 7-Speed Sport Dual Clutch Transmission. This limited-edition MINI is also complete with the latest update of the MINI Connected App for a seamless and unique ownership experience of the New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition.

The Bold, the Black, the Beautiful
The New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition is available exclusively in Midnight Black, marking the debut of this exterior offering on this generation of the MINI Countryman. The special edition features matte tone Bonnet Stripes in Brushed Aluminium. Exclusive to the Blackheath Edition, Original MINI Accessories Piano Black Trims emphasise the evocatively dark side of the MINI Countryman. The Piano Black Trims stylishly adorn the Headlight and Taillight trim, Front Grille, Door Handles, Front and Rear Emblem and the COUNTRYMAN Tailgate Badge.

The New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition will also feature newly designed LED fog lights and Aerodynamic Mirror Caps which were first seen on the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman 306HP that debuted last year. Highlights also include 19-inch John Cooper Works Circuit Spoke wheels shod with run-flat tyres to complement the elegance of the exterior colour, along with the John Cooper Works Aerodynamic kit.

Powered by the MINI TwinPower Turbo Engine
The New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition arrives in the Cooper S variant and is powered by a 2.0 litre MINI TwinPower Turbo engine that produces 192 hp and 280Nm of torque. The New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition achieves the century sprint in just 7.5 seconds and has a top speed of 225km/h. The car consumes 6.6 litres of fuel per 100 km of travel and outputs 151 g/km of CO2.

The engine is paired with the new Seven-Speed Dual Clutch Sports Automatic Transmission that provides fast gear changes, a high degree of shift comfort and optimised efficiency. Additionally, its electronic control system offers a wide range of progressive functions to increase the efficiency of the MINI, including allowing the use of engine start/stop function to avoid unnecessary fuel consumption when stopping at junctions.

The coasting function is also available in both the MID and GREEN driving modes, where the drivetrain is disengaged as soon as the driver removes their foot from the accelerator pedal. This allows the MINI to roll along at idling speed – free of any engine braking effect and at minimum fuel consumption.

The redesigned Electronic Selector Lever always returns to its original position after changing between driving mode (D), neutral position (N) and reverse mode (R). For convenience, the parking lock can be activated by pressing the P button and Sport mode (S) can be activated from position D by shifting the selector lever to the left, supporting a particularly sporty driving style with effortless manual intervention.

Elegant furnishing, modern drive
Giving the New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition a touch of sophistication is the sleek Anthracite headliner complemented with sports seats in Leather Cross Punch in Carbon Black. The interior of the New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition is further accentuated with the MINI Yours Illuminated Interior Trim in Piano Black, allowing the driver full personalisation from 12 ambient colours via a single toggle. Acoustics come in the form of the 12 High Performance Speaker Harman Kardon Sound System with DSP Amplifier and Class-D technology with a 360-watt output.

Enjoy the ride with the MINI Connected and Apple Carplay
The latest introduction to the New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition includes the 8.8” MINI Navigation System which can be operated via touch screen, centre console or voice control – providing easy access to a wealth of navigational information. The New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition is complete with the advanced MINI Connected with built-in 4G SIM technology that is permanently fitted in the car and meets the 4G mobile phone standard, along with the Intelligent Emergency Call and MINI TeleServices.

The current update of the MINI Connected App furnishes owners of the New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition with an exceptionally wide range of digital services such as Concierge Service, Apple Carplay and MINI Online that allow mobility planning to be integrated seamlessly in day-to-day digital routines. The app also enables sending navigational information from smartphone to vehicle and receiving departure information as well as the MINI Remote Services – which displays vehicle location, fuel level and other vehicle status details on their mobile devices. The function also allows quick activation of the headlight flash, horn, ventilation and door lock/unlock function.

The Apple CarPlay makes it easy for the driver to interconnect an iPhone with the display, the controls and the speakers of the New MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition, seamlessly integrating the main functions of the iPhone to be controlled easily via the MINI or Siri voice control. With the Apple CarPlay, iPhone applications can also be used at the driver’s disposal in the MINI, including conducting phone calls, listening to music, extracting route descriptions, and have incoming text messages read out.

The MINI Countryman Blackheath Edition will only be offered in Midnight Black, and is now available at all authorised MINI dealerships nationwide.
