F60 MINI Countryman Boardwalk adds a splash of blue

No stranger to special editions itself, MINI has introduced a new limited-run variant of the F60 Countryman SUV. Dubbed the Boardwalk, it takes its colour from another special edition model, using it not only as the exterior paint but also on a few highlights inside and out.

That particular hue is Deep Laguna, a metallic blue also seen on the MINI Convertible Sidewalk shown earlier this year. It’s paired with a black roof and wing mirrors and comes with an eye-catching linear graphic with the Boardwalk script on the front fender appliqu├ęs, also in Deep Laguna.

The cerulean lettering (complete with the aforementioned linear pattern) can also be found on the sides of the roof, the passenger-side interior decorative trim and, in monochrome form, on the side sill scuff plates. The Boardwalk is available in Cooper and Cooper S variants with the same engines as the regular Countryman.

Power comes from a 136 PS 1.5 litre turbocharged three-cylinder in the Cooper and a 178 PS 2.0 litre turbo four-pot in the Cooper S. These mills are paired to either a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. All4 models with all-wheel drive get an eight-speed automatic as standard.
