MINI Malaysia has announced the Clubman Sterling Edition, a new limited variant, for the domestic market. Purposefully made with unprecedented aesthetics and brimming with elegance, the new limited edition MINI is a true expression of a modern gentleman’s car and will only be available for booking online at www.mini.my/sterlingedition, a first in the Malaysian automotive industry. The sale will go live, with a booking function from 15 – 26 August.
The 2017 MINI Clubman Sterling Edition comes with a special body hue, Melting Silver , along with the subtle Matte Black Jack mirror caps and roof décor. This is complemented further by Black Union Jack symbols located at the side scuttles. Furthermore, the bespoke 18-inch MINI Yours Masterpiece wheels in burnish black similarly conveys elegance for every occasion.
Like a finely tailored jacket, its lining is usually fitted with a more vivid and contrasting tone versus the jacket’s color. This bold concept is embodied in the Clubman Sterling Edition’s interior, with its combination of Indigo Blue and Pure Burgundy. The interior is combined with MINI Yours Illuminated Interior, which allows the owner to choose from 12 pre-set colors to the trims.
Inside, the driver will also be greeted by the supple seats in luxurious Chester Leather upholstery in Indigo Blue crafted to deliver a smooth feel of the leather against the driver’s hand with its diagonal quilting. Indeed, these new-generation seats evoke the classic Chesterfield sofa. Additionally, the design of the sports seats delivers contemporary interpretations of its characteristic diamond pattern. Additionally, the steering is wrapped in a soft Nappa leather and completed with a hand finished aluminium colored stitching. At the bottom of the steering wheel, there is also the signature union jack insignia.
MINI Connected and relevant tech.
The Parking Assist function automatically steers the new MINI into any parallel parking spaces. The parking distance control function measures the parking space on both sides of the car as the driver drives along.
MINIs are best known for two things: style and superb driving dynamics. But with owners spending a large majority of their time in the car, MINI’s strongest feature is also the state-of-the-art infotainment system called the MINI Connected.
The infotainment interface of the MINI Clubman Sterling Edition is a highlight, with a 6.5-inch high resolution LCD mounted in the central speedometer with graphics tuned to hug its inner circumference. The MINI Connected infotainment itself features over 30 million songs which can stream live to the MINI. On top of that, standard readings such as current fuel consumption, current fuel range and last known locations can be viewed via the MINI Connected phone App.
Navigation is also a breeze with easily found new or frequent destinations. Appointments and addresses that are saved in the owner’s calendar can also be used as pre-set destinations. With the new and advanced system, route guidance is immediately displayed the moment MINI owners connect their iPhones to the car.
The MINI Clubman Sterling Edition is also covered by MINI Malaysia’s newest 5 Years Roadside Assistance program, available for all new MINI vehicles with a comprehensive list of services that include a 24-Hour, 365-days-a-year Accident and Help on the Phone and On the Spot Hotline, Free Towing Services and when needed (over 200KM from residential home), Replacement Vehicle, Accommodation, Mobility Services Solutions as well as Repatriation services. The MINI Roadside Assistance program toll-free line is 1800-88-8808.
