The MINI Shadow Edition.

Exterior of the MINI Shadow Edition is all-black with melting silver roof and mirror caps. Just like a midnight black sky with a silver lining, this new MINI Countryman Edition isn’t just black, it’s metallic, glossy and monochromatic. The Piano Black Exterior trim along with special double matt paint on exterior decals and subtle elements of the Shadow Edition adds an air of mystery. Depending on your point of view shadows appear on different elements as the light breaks differently.

The interior style blends modern aesthetics and refined craftsmanship with practical functionality. The MINI Shadow Edition comes with MINI Yours Interior Style Shaded Silver and Leather Chester Malt Brown upholstery. The colour lines seen along the door panel, armrest surfaces and knee pads under the dashboard are matched with the upholstery colours. The MINI Excitement Pack features LED interior and ambient lighting which illuminates the cockpit with a choice of selectable colours as well as a projection of the MINI logo from the exterior mirror on the driver's side when opening and closing the car door. 

The car is equipped with premium features such as the Harman Kardon Hi-Fi Speaker System, Panorama Glass Sunroof, MINI Wired Package including MINI Navigation System with Touch Controller and Bluetooth mobile connectivity.

The Multifunction Digital Display offers a clear view of speed, gear, fuel level, mileage, temperature and navigation instructions.

The intuitive use is complemented by the controller on the middle console for easy operation of multimedia, phone and car functions. Wireless charging is also offered as standard.

The electric seat adjustment in front (with memory function for driver) offers enhanced head and shoulder space for both the driver and front passenger. The three full-fledged seats at the rear make for ample and comfortable seating for rear passengers. Using the cargo function, boot capacity can be increased from 450 litres to 1,390 litres by folding down the rear backrest with its 40:20:40 split. The MINI Shadow Edition can be parked at a scenic space and the view can be enjoyed with the unique Picnic Bench that folds out of the luggage compartment to provide seating space for two while protecting the clothing with a fender dirt protection flap. Automatic Tailgate combined with Comfort Access System allows the boot to be opened and closed just by waving the foot under the rear bumper.
