The very desirable Mini Cooper series received a generation change earlier this year. Now, there is a Mini Oxford Edition on sale in India for Rs 44.90 lakh. The Mini Oxford Edition will be available for booking exclusively on Amazon India. There will only be 25 units on sale. The vehicle is based on the Mini Cooper S 3-door hatchback.
What’s special in the Mini Oxford Edition
The hatchback comes with a plethora of new features. All these parts have been borrowed from the Mini Yours Customised bin. The Mini Oxofrd Edition gets 3D lettering. The British Union Jack can be found on the tail light, door sill, leather upholstery, LED door projection, steering wheel and dashboard. A panoramic glass sunroof is also part of the package. A touchscreen infotainment system along with Apple CarPlay are some of the other options available.
Piano Black seems to be the theme for the Mini Oxford. One can find the colour in the headlamp outlines, on the dashboard as well as upholstery. Head-up display, different driving modes as well as 12 variable ambient lighting is also available.
In terms of powertrain, the Mini Oxford Edition gets the regular 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine. This motor is good for 192PS of power and 280Nm of torque. A 7-speed dual clutch transmission takes care of transmission duties. Six airbags, ABS with EBD, Brake Control, Cornering Stability Control as well as a crash sensor are on offer. Mini also provides front and rear parking sensors.
Minis have always been fun to drive and while the CBU pricing makes it a tad on the expensive side, the car will put a mile wide grin on your face. The company has got special editions in the past. However, the Oxford unit isn’t a JCW and that should take away some of the fun factor. JCW models feature uprated power as well as torque. They are high on style too.
