Three new models extends the choice of Minis to 10
23 June 2005

Mini has bolstered its line-up with a trio of new trim levels reviving names from the 'original' Mini's past. The Mini One Seven, Cooper Park Lane and Cooper S Checkmate have been introduced to freshen the Mini's appeal ahead of its replacement, due in September 2006.

The £12,565 Mini One Seven's £1785 premium brings Solar Red metallic paint, 15” alloy wheels and new Seven decals and interior trim.

At a hefty £3460 above list, the Mini Cooper Park Lane earns its prestigious title with full leather trim, unique Royal Grey metallic paint with a silver roof and bonnet stripes and 16” alloy wheels. The £15,260 price tag also brings automatic air conditioning, sports seats, fog lights, rear spoiler and ASC+T stability control. There's a fresh paintjob for the £17,635 Cooper S Checkmate, too. But in addition to the cosmetic changes, this more focussed Mini adds 17in alloys and a limited-slip differential, plus air-con, cloth/leather trim and Xenon headlights.
