And with the latest generation of MINI, we want to amplify the excitement once again. To ensure the new generation of MINI is as successful as its predecessors, we have made just subtle modifications to its design. But beneath the outer skin is a brand-new car with an absolutely revamped interior stacked with state-of-the-art technologies seen for the first time in a small car. Reinventing an icon like the MINI was an exciting task. On one hand, we had to create a vehicle that exceeds the demands of modern, twenty-first century motoring. On the other, we had to stay true to the Original MINI and a design philosophy that has laid the foundations for over 50 years of success.”

In 2012, the BMW Group introduced MINI as a premium brand in India. Presently, the model range in India includes the 3-door, 5-door, Convertible and the Countryman. The brand has established four exclusive outlets – Bird Automotive (Delhi), Infinity Cars (Mumbai), Navnit Motors (Bangalore) and KUN Exclusive (Hyderabad).
