Taking its name from the first Mini, the 1959 Austin Seven, the Mini Seven was developed to showcase both the distinctive style inspired by the original, and the current modern values of the brand. It will be available as a Mini three-door or five-door hatch in four engine types: Cooper, Cooper D, Cooper S and Cooper SD.
Mini Seven will have its first appearance in this part of the world at Goodwood Festival of Speed on the Mini stand from June 23 to 26 with orders being taken now. Prices for the Mini three-door Seven and Mini five-door Seven have been announced in the UK, but not here yet.
The Mini Seven joins the current generation Mini hatch range in five-door or three-door form with specially designed exterior and interior looks unseen before on this generation’s model line-up.
The Mini Seven is instantly recognisable by its striking Mini Yours body finish which comes as standard in lapis blue - the most intensive blue tone ever applied to a Mini. Three other body finishes from the Mini paint range are also available to choose from; pepper white, midnight black and British racing green.
A silver roof and exterior mirror caps come as standard contrasting with the distinctive body finishes. Mini Seven door sill finishers and side scuttles with the Mini Seven logo as well as 17-inch light alloy wheels in exclusive Mini Seven Spoke two-tone design complete the exterior look.
For those wanting to add their own personal style to the exterior design of Mini Seven, bonnet stripes in silver with surround in malt brown are also available as an option.
Inside, the eye-catching design cues continue with sports seats in the fabric/leather finish, designed exclusively for Mini Seven.
There is also a Mini Seven logo on the central instrument which surrounds the Mini Visual Boost 6.5’’ colour display which also comes as standard alongside Mini Connected, Bluetooth handsfree with USB audio, floor mats, Mini excitement pack, automatic dual-zone air conditioning and storage compartment pack.
In addition to the high quality standard equipment offered, Mini Seven has its own bespoke option pack, the Mini Seven Chili. The Mini Seven Chili offers customers Mini Yours features such as the lounge leather upholstery in carbon black and the Mini Yours steering wheel in nappa leather with a waxed hand stitched seem.
The Mini Seven Chili pack also offers additional features which are unique in the small car segment including LED headlights, multifunction controls for the steering wheel and cruise control with brake function.
