Production is limited to just 325 units.
After the Mini Countryman was given a refresh for the 2021 model year, Mini has lifted the wraps off a new limited-edition version of the popular crossover dubbed the Boardwalk. Named after promenades of traditional seaside resorts in the UK, the new special edition gets a new striking Deep Laguna metallic finish and boasts unique exterior and interior enhancements.
If the special color sounds familiar, it's the same blue finish that was previously offered exclusively for the limited Mini Convertible Sidewalk edition. By popular demand, Mini has made it available for the Cooper, Cooper S, and Cooper All4 Countryman for the first time.
A contrasting black roof and mirror caps also contribute to the car's eye-catching new look. Inside, there's a unique emblem inspired by the pattern of the wooden beams laid horizontally and diagonally along UK promenades. Boardwalk logos also adorn the side sills and dashboard. Optional extras available for the regular Countryman are equipped as standard, including the Interior Pack and Mini Excitement Pack, adding mood lighting, illuminated handles and external logo projections on the mirrors.
Like the regular Countryman, the Boardwalk Edition includes a digital gauge cluster as standard, while the Navigation Pack adds an 8.8-inch display, Apple CarPlay, real-time traffic information and other app-based services.
Additional standard equipment includes the Mini Yours Leather and Comfort Plus Pack, which adds heated seats, floor mats, front parking sensors, a park assist, and front and rear-view cameras.
As for engine options, the Cooper Countryman packs a turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine generating 134 horsepower, while the Cooper S and Cooper All4 variants utilize a 2.0-liter turbo-four producing 178 hp. In the UK, production of the Countryman Boardwalk Edition will be limited to just 325 units, with prices starting at £31,600 ($42,443). Mini hasn't confirmed if the Boardwalk Edition will be sold in the US, but it seems unlikely.
