A 2-wheel drive variant of the MINI Cooper S Countryman is now available in Malaysia, complementing the 4WD variant which has been in the market for some time.

Introducing the new Cooper S Countryman, Natasha Karim, MINI Manager at BMW Group Malaysia said, “The new 2-wheel drive MINI Cooper S Countryman now adds another member to the MINI family here and will offer yet another exciting, sportier and inimitable variant of the MINI Countryman with its signature two wheel drive ‘Go-Kart’ handling capabilities.”

She added that the new variant is powered by the 1.6-litre 4-cylinder powerplant with a twin-scroll turbocharger and direct injection which produces 184 bhp, enabling the car to get to 100 km/h in a claimed 8.3 seconds.

As with other MINI models sold through authorized MINI dealers, the new Cooper S Countryman  – priced at RM268,888 (excluding insurance premium) – comes with the MINI Tender Loving Care (TLC) service-inclusive program which takes care wear and tear repairs for 3 years/50,000 kms, whichever comes first.  MINI TLC covers work such as engine oil changes; servicing of the air filter, micro filter, spark plugs and brake fluid; maintenance and servicing of brake pads and brake discs; maintenance and servicing of clutch in the event of wear and tear as well as replacement of windscreen wiper rubbers and blades.

Along with the announcement of the additional variant, BMW Group Malaysia also said that Ingress Auto has been appointed as an authorised MINI representative in Malaysia. The company’s showroom is now under construction in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, and will be open for business before the end of the year.
