Mini Asia and British United Automobiles, Inc., have announced the updated lineup of fourth-generation Mini models in the Philippines.

According to Mini, the new models showcase an update in design and technology for the Mini 3-Door, Mini 5-Door, and Mini Convertible, as well as Mini John Cooper Works 3-Door and Mini John Cooper Works Convertible.

“Today, Mini is kicking things up a notch in the Philippines with its biggest launch to date. With seven new variants across the range, there is a Mini for everyone,” said Autohub Group President, Willy Q. Tee Ten.

He adds, “these cars are premium, urban, and thrillingly playful. No matter which version you choose, you will see a great leap in modern design, technology, and pure Mini-ness while staying true to its iconic, classic go-kart design.”

Part of the updates Mini customers can expect is the refreshed exterior. The front-end of the fourth-gen Minis has been completely reworked, with notable highlights such as a larger grille forming a single unbroken hexagon, as well as fog lights being replaced by air intakes. Likewise, the rear received significant design updates with model-specific rear apron geometry.

The interior of the fourth-generation Minis also got an update. Thanks to their “reduced design” approach, the new Mini models will have significantly fewer chrome accents on the dashboard.

However, they get a new sports leather steering wheel as standard, with a new design of the wheel spokes and a black panel concept for the multifunction controls. A five-inch digital screen behind the steering wheel and an 8.8-inch touchscreen surrounded by a laser-engraved LED ring is fitted as standard.

In addition, the new Mini John Cooper Works 3-Door and Mini John Cooper Works Convertible will also be added to the automotive marque’s local lineup.

Separating the John Cooper Works models from the regular variants is the signature red crossbar on the grille. The John Cooper Works Minis also get model-specific side scuttles on the front side panels and rear aprons. Likewise, the signature 85-millimeter stainless steel twin tailpipes of the sports exhaust system set it apart from the other fourth-gen models.

Under the bonnet of both the Mini John Cooper Works 3-Door and Mini John Cooper Works Convertible is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with Mini TwinPower Turbo technology. It’s mated to an eight-speed Steptronic Sports transmission giving the peppy Mini a maximum power output of 231hp and a maximum torque of 320Nm.

Stopping power comes from four-piston fixed caliper brakes with internally ventilated discs peeking through the signature 18-inch John Cooper Works alloy wheels in the Circuit Spoke two-tone design.

Suspension-wise, both John Cooper Works models come with adaptive suspension with a new frequency-selective damper technology. They also come with a host of exclusive equipment with high-class specifications.

Mini invites its customers to check out the new fourth-gen models at the Mini Bonifacio Global City, Mini Alabang, Mini Pampanga, and Mini Cebu showrooms from Friday, 15 October 2021.
