NEW MINI SOHO SPECIAL EDITION IS OUT ON THE TOWN
This summer MINI Hatch and MINI Convertible models are available in a special, limited edition called MINI Soho. Earlier this year the company announced that all MINI Special Editions will be named after London boroughs, districts, streets and landmarks.
The Soho name has been introduced to MINI Hatch and Convertible models for a limited time following the success of the popular MINI Soho Clubman edition last year. The MINI Soho edition will be available in both Cooper and Cooper D models from July until March 2012. Thanks to the MINI Cooper D Hatch’s frugal credentials it is exempt from London Congestion charging with CO2 of just 99g/km and a whopping 74.3mpg fuel consumption (on combined cycle).
[Editor’s note: Yep that’s better mileage than the earlier smart ForTwo CDI, for those who may be wondering.]
MINI Soho editions have exclusive ‘White Silver’ metallic paint which is not available on any other current MINI Hatch or Convertible model, and to compliment the striking paintwork the Soho is finished with 17″ Black Star Bullet alloy wheels, Bi-Xenon headlights with black interior reflectors and white indicators.
Inside the cabin the Soho has a sporty feel with Anthracite headlining, a 3-Spoke sport leather steering wheel and ‘Piano Black’ interior surfaces.
