Visually, the Park Lane stands out from the standard Countryman thanks to an eye-catching two-tone Earl Grey and Oak Red paint job, silver trim on both ends and a sprinkling of model-specific emblems. 18-inch light alloy wheels wrap up the upscale look.
The posh treatment continues inside with edition-specific silver and gray trim on the dashboard, the center console and the door panels as well as Park Lane emblems on the door sills. Like all members of the Countryman family, the Park Lane can carry up to 42 cubic feet of cargo space with the second row of seats folded flat.
MINI has not made any mechanical modifications. Park Lane buyers can choose between the Cooper Countryman’s 121-horsepower four-cylinder engine and the Cooper S Countryman’s 181-horsepower turbo four. Both engines come standard with a six-speed manual transmission, and the S model can be ordered with MINI’s ALL4 all-wheel drive system at an extra cost.
The 2015 MINI Countryman Park Lane is scheduled to go on sale across the nation next July. MINI has not revealed how much of a premium it will carry over the standard Countryman or how many examples it plans on building.
