MINI at the Brussels Motor Show 2019.

British premium automobile manufacturer presents an exclusive design
model to mark the 60th anniversary of the brand along with the MINI
John Cooper Works, now fitted with a petrol engine particulate filter.


Munich. The MINI presentation at the Brussels Motor
Show 2019 is dedicated entirely to a round anniversary. The motor show
in the Belgian capital is the scene of the world premiere of the
MINI 60 Years Edition. With this exclusive design model, the British
premium automobile manufacturer recalls the debut of the classic Mini
in the year 1959. At that time, this economical and agile small car
laid the foundations for a worldwide brand success story that
continues to this day. 60 years on, MINI presents a model program to
the Brussels Motor Show visitors from 19 to 27 January that offers a
modern interpretation of the brand’s core properties. It ranges from
the first MINI to feature an electric motor through to the extremely
sporty John Cooper Works models.

The founding father and bestseller among the top athletes of the
model program is the MINI John Cooper Works (combined fuel
consumption: 6.9 – 6.9 l/100 km with 6-speed manual transmission,
6.2 – 6.1 l/ 100 km with 8-speed Steptronic gearbox; combined
CO2 emissions: 158 – 157 g/km with 6-speed manual
transmission, 142 – 140 g/km with 8-speed Steptronic transmission). At
the Brussels Motor Show 2019 MINI presents the new version of the 3
door, whose emissions output is now optimised by means of a standard
particulate filter.

Anniversary design model: the MINI 60 Years Edition.

With its exclusive design and equipment features, the MINI 60 Years
Edition – to be shown in public for the first time in Brussels –
authentically expresses the traditional sporting spirit and British
origins of the brand. A distinctive appearance is ensured by the body
colour British Racing Green, a contrasting finish on the roof and
exterior mirror caps, bonnet stripes in a specific anniversary design
and 17-inch light alloy wheels in the version 60 Years Spoke 2-tone.
The anniversary logo also appears on the side scuttles, door sill
finishers, front headrests as well as in the LED logo projection on
the driver’s side. In addition the exclusive design model has
model-specific interior trim finishers.

The standard equipment of the edition vehicles also features a sports
leather steering wheel as well as sports seats in the leather trim
MINI Yours Leather Lounge 60 Years and the exclusive colour Dark
Maroon. The MINI 60 Years Edition will be available from March 2019
onwards as a MINI 3 door and MINI 5 door, each with four engine variants.

MINI John Cooper Works now complying with Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard.

The thrilling performance properties of the MINI John Cooper Works
powered by a 4-cylinder turbo engine with an output of 170 kW/231 hp
are now combined with further optimised emissions. Thanks to a
particulate filter integrated in the sports exhaust system, both the 3
door model and the MINI John Cooper Works Convertible (combined fuel
consumption: 7.1 – 7.0 l/100 km with 6-speed manual transmission,
6.5 – 6.4 l/ 100 km with 8-speed Steptronic transmission; combined
CO2 emissions: 162 – 161 g/km with 6-speed manual
transmission, 148 – 145 g/km with 8-speed Steptronic transmission) now
complies with the Euro 6d-TEMP emission standard.

Together with the two most recent additions to the brand’s program,
MINI will also be presenting a cross-section of its model range, which
currently comprises five series. The British original is represented
in the premium small car segment by the MINI 3 door, the MINI 5 door
and the MINI Convertible. And through the MINI Clubman and the MINI
Countryman, the brand’s individual style has also become established
beyond the premium compact segment. These models will also be on show
as part of the trade fair presentation in Brussels, including the
MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 (combined fuel consumption:
2.5 – 2.4 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 56 – 55 g/km,
combined power consumption: 13.7 – 13.4 kWh/100 km). The brand’s first
plug-in hybrid model enables a purely electrically powered range of up
to 41 – 42 kilometres, thereby already providing an impression of
locally emissions-free mobility combined with typical MINI driving fun.

The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, power
consumption and range are measured using the methods required
according to Regulation (EC) 2007/715 as amended. The information is
based on a vehicle with basic equipment in Germany; ranges take into
account differences in wheel and tyre size selected as well as
optional equipment and can change during configuration.

The information has already been calculated based on the new WLTP
test cycle and adapted to NEDC for comparison purposes. In these
vehicles, different figures than those published here may apply for
the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are
(also) based on CO2 emissions.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and the
official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the
“Manual on the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power
consumption of new cars” available free of charge at all sales
outlets, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT),
