Your Way: Mini Enhances Customization Program for 2014

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 3/19/2014 Karla Sanchez

If you thought Mini's current customization program provided endless possibilities, wait until you see the automaker's new range of accessories. Scheduled to launch this spring, a flurry of new options including exterior touches, interior detailing, and unique alloy wheels will make spec'ing out Minis all the more fun.


All the popular classics like the roof graphics, exterior mirror caps, and headlamps will still be available, but with a bit more flair. Mini has added four design lines (Vivid Greed, Speedwell Blue, John Cooper Works Pro, and Essential Black) that for the first time, will match all the accessories precisely so that the exterior and interior of the car are coordinated. With this, textiles, all-weather mats, sun protection elements, door sill covers, exterior and interior mirror caps, roof and side graphics, and side blinker surrounds can all stylishly match.

Each design line appeals to a different type of look. Vivid Green is youthful with "striking dashes of rich green against a black background," while Speedwell Blue is sporty with red, white, blue, and brown touches. John Cooper Works Pro "reflects a passion for racing with a vibrant checkered flag in black, red, and gray." Meanwhile, Essential Black features a diagonal checkered pattern on the side panels.

Also new are two finishes: Big Bang and Gold Jack. As for roof graphics, they've been expanded to include nine variants for the regular roof and six for the optional glass roof. Design accents can also be added to side blinker surrounds, and new 18- or 17-inch alloys can also be finished in Chilli Red, Bright Orange, Apple Green, or Bright Yellow. Even key lanyards, protective covers, and luggage compartments can be customized. MotorTrend Image© Provided by MotorTrend MotorTrend Image
