- MINI reveals new ALL4 Business model
- New trim caters specifically for company car drivers
- CO2 emissions as low as 123g/km
Ever fancied a MINI Countryman as your next company car but couldn’t convince your fleet manager?
Now may be the perfect opportunity to put forward your case again as MINI has revealed a new ALL4 Business model of the Countryman Cooper developed specifically for the fleet market.
With its striking good looks, fun drive and characterful cabin, the MINI Countryman has proved a popular choice for many retail buyers and now with the addition of the ALL4 Business model, the firm is hoping to replicate that success with company car drivers.
Providing an alternative to other popular SUVs like the Nissan Qashqai and Skoda Yeti, the new business edition includes the brand’s all-wheel drive system which offers off-road capabilities and more grip in difficult driving conditions.
There’s a wealth of kit fitted as standard on the new trim ideal for company car drivers including sat-nav, cruise control, parking sensors, air-con, 17-inch alloy wheels and automatic headlights and wipers.
Chris Brownridge, director, MINI UK, said: “The new ALL4 Business model has been specifically developed to cater for the needs of businesses with high residual values and low emissions, while also offering something fun and exciting for drivers. MINI has grown in popularity within the UK fleet market since the launch of the 5-door hatch last year, which has opened the brand up to new customers.”
Crucial for company car drivers will be that MINI Countryman Cooper D CO2 emissions are just 123g/km which is pretty low considering the car is fitted with an all-wheel drive system and slots into a 22 percent BIK tax band for the current 2015/16 tax year. With a p11d price of £22,400, that means it’ll cost a 20 percent tax payer £82.13 a month. If you pay for your own personal mileage then the official combined figure of 60mpg should mean you’ll be able to travel further between fill ups too.
Under the bonnet lies a 1.6-litre diesel engine which produces 108bhp and 270Nm of torque which enables the car to accelerate from 0-62mph in 11.2 seconds.
