Upmarket Mini Countryman will go on sale in the UK in July; prices to be confirmed
5 March 2015

Mini has given the facelifted Countryman a unique range of exterior colours and interior trims with the creation of a new Park Lane model.

Unveiled at the Geneva motor show, the upmarket Countryman is planned to go on sale in the UK in July with a choice of four engines and either front- or four-wheel drive.

Featuring the same styling treatment as the Countryman All4, the Park Lane receives a body finished in Earl Grey metallic, with the roof, exterior mirror and inlays of the chrome surrounds for the repeater units along the flanks in Oak Red.

Also included are 'Park Lane' emblems on each of the front wings, and 18in wheels in grey.

Inside, there are further 'Park Lane' inscriptions on the door sills and dashboard. Various interior surfaces are finished in Oxide Silver, while Carbon Black is used for inlays within the door trims and centre console.
