Geneva LIVE: MINI Countryman Park Lane

MINI is dusting off an old name for its latest Countryman variant.

MINI has unveiled a new high-end trim line for its Countryman crossover at the Geneva Motor Show. Borrowing a nameplate from MINI's past, the top-spec Countryman will go on sale worldwide later his year as the Park Lane.

Named after one of the most prestigious addresses in all of London, the MINI Countryman Park Lane was designed with the premium buyer in mind. To that end, the Countryman Park Lane is finished in Early Grey metallic with Oak Red accents adorning the crossover's roof and mirror caps. Oak Red sport stripes can also be ordered.

The Countryman Park Lane rolls on a set of 18-inch wheels finished in Dark Grey.

Inside the Park Lane gets two more bespoke color accents — Oxide Silver for the door bezels and cockpit trim and Cross Stripe Grey for the sides of the center console. Standard features in the Park Lane include sport seats, automatic climate control, sports steering wheel and velour floor mats.

Buyers can choose to pack on even more features with the optional MINI Countryman Park Lane Chili package, which includes LED fog lamps and white turn signals.

The Park Land will be available across eight Countryman model lines worldwide, including the Cooper and Cooper S variants that will be sold here. Pricing will be announced closer to the MINI Countryman Park Lane's July market launch.

The Park Lane nameplates has been used twice before — once in 1987 on the classic Mini and most recently in 2005 on the reborn MINI design.
