2017 Mini Seven Special Edition Offers Retro and Modern Touches

By Philly Murtha, May 11, 2016
This week, Mini, the BMW Group niche small car brand, introduced a 2017 Mini Seven special-edition trim level for the third-generation Mini Cooper Hardtop that features heritage cues from the original “Austin Seven” car that debuted in 1959. The Mini Seven special edition compact sporty car offers a variety of exterior and interior treatment choices to create a truly personalized car. The package will be available in both 2- and 4-door Cooper and Cooper S variants and arrives this summer in U.S. dealer showrooms.

As a special edition, the Mini Cooper Seven offers a choice of two engines: a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder that produces 134 horsepower for the Cooper and a peppier 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that generates 189 horsepower for Cooper S variants. The new Mini Seven comes with a 6-speed manual transmission but can be ordered with a 6-speed Steptronic as well.

The Mini Seven’s exterior paint is non-metallic Lapisluxury Blue, based on a hue that was considered “the blue of kings.” However, consumers can opt for non-metallic Pepper White or metallic Midnight Black and British Racing Green. Roof and exterior mirrors on the “Seven” are finished in silver, as are stripes across the hood.

Interior appointments include sport seats that can be upholstered in leather and fabric in the Diamond Malt Brown pattern or in Mini’s all-black and grey leathers. The instrument panel also can be personalized with trim options in standard Piano black or optional Dark Cottonwood, Fibre Alloy, or Off-White. Other accents on the inside are done in Mini’s Malt Brown color.

Heated front seats are optional, along with a panoramic roof, Harman Kardon audio system, parking-distance sensors, and power-folding mirrors. Mini’s Connected infotainment system with a 6.5-in. touch screen is standard, but can be upgraded to an 8.8-in. Mini Connected XL system with navigation. The Mini Seven rides on 17-in. alloy wheels in a 6-spoke design with 2-color finish. Optional 18-in. wheels can be ordered. Special Mini Seven badging is featured throughout.

Pricing for the 2017 Mini Cooper Seven Special Edition package will be released closer to the vehicle’s launch.
