Here at Orlando MINI, we’re always ecstatic to hear about news regarding our models. We’ve recently heard about a few new changes, and we can’t wait to introduce them to you in person here at our dealership.

From July 2018 on, the MINI Clubman and MINI Countryman will have the option of a seven-speed Steptronic® transmission with double clutch. Vehicles with the automatic transmission will have the option of steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. In addition to the new transmission option, the Connectivity Package will be available in the MINI Clubman starting in July. 

For the MINI Clubman and MINI Countryman, this package provides Connected Navigation Plus® that has an 8.8-inch touchscreen and MINI Touch Controller®, Real Time Traffic Information®, and automatic navigation map updates. The package also includes Apple CarPlay™, MINI Connected Xl, wireless charging, and the Harman Kardon® hi-fi speaker system, which is comprised of 12 speakers, an eight-channel amp, and 360 watts of output capacity.

The new features don’t stop there, however. Models manufactured after July 2018 will also get custom automatic driving light control as a now standard amenity. This function will make sure the headlights and rear lights automatically adjust depending on the driving conditions. The driving light switch in both the MINI Clubman and MINI Countryman can be turned to an additional position; this is marked by a graphic containing “A” to signify the automatic driving position. 

At Orlando MINI, the MINI Clubman and MINI Countryman models are among the most popular cars on our lot. Come on down to visit us at 350 S Lake Destiny Rd in Orlando, FL and take one of these riveting vehicles out for a test drive. We also carry all other MINI models and pre-owned cars as well!
