Bring on the New: The New MINI Countryman, Boardwalk Edition

February 15th, 2021 by

We’re all about the new: New Year, new president, and very soon … a new, limited, special-edition MINI Countryman – the Boardwalk. 

Here in the U.S., “Boardwalk” conjures up images of Monopoly games and Atlantic City, but since MINI is a British icon, the company says the name is evocative of “the promenades of traditional seaside resorts in Britain.” We like that even better.

The European edition of the Boardwalk MINI has already been introduced, and while it may not be identical to what we’ll get when it comes to our shores in April or May, it’s a good indication. It has:

  • Deep Laguna Blue metallic paint on the body
  • Black roof and roof rails
  • 19-inch alloy wheels
  • Power hatch
  • LED front and rear lights. 

Distinctively MINI, Distinctively Boardwalk

Inside, the European version of the MINI Countryman Boardwalk has its own unique logo that was inspired by the wooden planks on seaside boardwalks. It appears on the doorsills, cockpit fascia and roof, piano-black detailing, heated seats, mood lighting and illuminated handles. The Navigation package brings a digital instrument cluster and 8.8-inch display that has Apple CarPlay and real-time traffic. Safety/driver assistance equipment includes cruise control with automated emergency braking, park assist, front parking sensors and front and rearview cameras. We still don’t know whether all of this will carry over to the American MINI Boardwalk.

 

The MINI Countryman is the company’s best-selling vehicle in the U.S. and a refreshed version for 2021 went on sale in July. The regular Countryman’s base price is just over $27,000. The Boardwalk Countryman will be available as either a Cooper or Cooper S with a base price tag of about $42,000.
