MINI’s largest, versatile and distinctively styled vehicle – the Cooper Countryman S All4 – gets a new Untamed Edition. This special edition features exclusive styling and equipment features. It’s powered by a 4 cylinder turbopetrol engine making 131 kW and feeds power through the brand’s optional All4 AWD system.
The Untamed Edition adds a contrasting black finish on the roof and exterior mirror caps as well as on the roof rails and headlight housings. It also adds a Piano Black Exterior option, which is also included in the equipment range of the edition vehicles, black design features to the surrounds of the radiator grille, headlights, tail lights and side scuttles, the door handles, tailpipe trims, model lettering and – where these are part of the equipment – the ALL4 emblems on the front side panels.
On the lower section of its side profile, the Untamed Edition Countryman adds four Frozen Bluestone diagonal stripes. Like the door sill finishers, the side scuttles also feature a graphic pattern inspired by a mountain landscape, together with the inscription “Untamed”. This inscription is also featured on the rear side windows. It’s riding on 18-inch alloy wheels in Untamed 2-tone design with burnished surfaces.
The edition vehicle’s range of equipment also includes LED headlights with extended features, LED fog lights and the lighting package
Inside, the Untamed Edition features nature-inspired shades of green and blue. The exclusive Highland Green is combined with blue and green contrast stitching on the surfaces of the MINI Yours Leather Lounge sports seats, with MINI Yours Leather Lounge Carbon Black available as an optional alternative.
The characteristic graphic of the mountain landscape in the style of the door sill finishers likewise adorns the discreet pins in the outer area of the backrests, while the illuminated decorative trim in Frozen Bluestone bears the striking landscape pattern, too. An additional effect is achieved by the “Untamed” inscription which is visible in the car’s night design.
The accentuation strips in the cockpit and on the centre instrument are finished in Frozen Blue metallic, the door trim strips in Arctic Silver metallic and the surrounds of the air vents in high-gloss black. In addition, the MINI Cooper S Countryman in the Untamed Edition features emblems with the inscription “Untamed” on the seats and in the lower spoke of the Nappa sports leather steering wheel. The exclusively designed interior is rounded off with floor mats featuring a three-dimensional embossed landscape pattern in the style of the door sill finishers and decorative strips along with a roof liner in anthracite.
