Mini has added yet another special edition to its stable in Australia.
The 2021 Mini Countryman Boardwalk will be coming Down Under in extremely limited numbers, with just 59 earmarked for local dealers.
Compared to the regular Countryman, the Boardwalk gains Deep Laguna exterior paint with Piano Black contrast highlights and 18-inch alloy wheels.
There’s also a fold-out picnic bench at the rear, in keeping with the Boardwalk’s seaside theme.
Inside, the car gets heated sport seats and the sport steering wheel from the Countryman JCW, along with a Harman Kardon stereo and panoramic sunroof.
Both Countryman and Countryman S options are available.
The base Cooper uses a turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine producing 100kW of power and 220Nm of torque, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The Cooper S uses a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine producing 141kW of power and 280Nm of torque, also mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
The Countryman Cooper Boardwalk is priced from $52,000 before on-road costs, up from $44,500 before on-roads for the standard car.
The Countryman Cooper S Boardwalk is priced from $58,500 before on-roads, up from $52,900 before on-roads.
A total of 29 Cooper and 30 Cooper S models are available in Australia, with ordering open on the Mini Australia website.
