MINI-Mania in Barbados

On the forecourt: Eyes on the MINI Countryman.

The MINI family is here. And local dealers McEnearneyQualitiy Inc. (MQI) took the covers off the all-new line of cars recently during an impressive launch at their Wildey headquarters before a mixed audience made up of invited guests, staff and friends.

Marketing Manager Margaret Hoyte in welcoming guests to the event, said that while the MINI is an iconic car, it has also been a hit with the youth, hence the styling cues of the new vehicles.

The small vibrantly coloured sporty hatchbacks, made up of the MINI One, the MINI One Countryman, the MINI Cooper S, along with the MINI Cooper Countryman all the got the attention of those gathered for the afterwork introduction.

“MINI and lifestyle and fashion go hand in hand ... the brand has its eyes targeted at clients that are young at heart, fun loving and modern.
It is a daring approach which you cannot do with other brands”, the marketing manager explained.

The new family of BMW MINIs come with Automatic Stability Control + Traction (ASC+T), to prevent the front wheels from spinning, guaranteeing ideal starting conditions and plenty of traction and the MINI One makes sure you'll feel as safe as if at home - anywhere, anytime.

Optimum braking behaviour in any situation is ensured by four disc brakes, an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) as standard and Cornering Brake Control (CBC). Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) manages the balance of the braking force between front and rear axle. Brake Assist speeds up the process, enabling maximum braking pressure and thus minimising the braking distance.

Standard-feature Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) prevents unstable driving situations by intervening in the engine management and, if necessary, by applying braking force to individual wheels at the front or rear.

High-quality safety equipment equips the MINI to combat the dangers of the road, including optimum light on straights and bends alike; thanks to the optional bi-xenon headlights which adapt to the direction of the road.

The MINI has six airbags as standard: driver and passenger airbags protect the head and upper body during a head-on collision. Side and head airbags reduce the risk of injuries to the head, chest and pelvic regions during side-on impact.

"Complete all-round protection" is the guiding principle for the MINI family chassis construction. The rigid collapsible steering column acts as a protective shield, providing optimum protection in the case of impact from the front, rear and side or if the car rolls over.
