Minimalism for a new generation on the road. By Sharmita Summugam.
Fall in love all over again with the sexy third-generation Mini Cooper and Mini Cooper S. Fitted with Mini TwinPower Turbo technology as well as a six-speed automatic transmission that reduces weight and improves efficiency, it even comes built with an improved power suit (variants of the power suit consist of Mini Cooper, Mini Cooper Chilli, Mini Cooper S, and Mini Cooper S Wired). Striking lines and high-end highlights still carry forward the tradition of the classic Mini, but check out its groundbreaking Driving Mode options, such as a rotary switch at the base of the gear selector lever, used to activate the standard MID mode, the Sport mode or the Green mode. “The car sets new benchmarks within its segment. Mini now features new engines and Minimalism technologies for better efficiency in terms of fuel consumption and emissions as well as Mini Connected technologies for better connectivity,” said Dr. Gerhard Pils, CEO of BMW Group Malaysia. Translated, this head-turner will see you blazing through the streets, guilt-free eco-wise. Priced at RM178,888 (Mini Cooper) and RM228,888 (Mini Cooper S) on-the-road, without insurance.
