MINI is growing up.
It’s something we have heard since the launch of the Countryman model, a car that is all about the spirit of discovery and comes complete with space for five people, a large booty and an optional AWD system.
But to make things a little more interesting and a little more adventurous, MINI has offered an interesting new option to make their latest Countryman all the more appealing to adventurists: a roof tent.
More from The Citizen:
The British brand has teamed up with Italian company Autohome to produce a roof tent, inspired by the design of MINI’s current product portfolio. Autohome is specialised in producing roof tents for cars and has more than 50 years of experience in the business.
The tent comes in two colours – white and black – and when closed, looks like a regular transport box.
Yes, of course it’s “aerodynamically optimised for lower fuel consumption”.
To set up, all one has to do is release the safety clasps and the tent automatically raises by means of four gas pressure springs. Then, this what you get:
The tent is 94 centimetres high and is not only rain-proof but also offers “optimum ventilation properties as well as a high level of heat and noise insulation”, thanks to a stable cover and outer walls in special high-quality fabric.
Some of the features of the tent include a high-density mattress with cotton cover, two doors and two windows with zips, close-meshed mosquito nets at all openings, and a battery-operated LED interior light.
Say hello to easy, adventurous camping, am I right?
I mean, hello road trip:
Looks good, doesn’t it?
It would look better if it was yours, though, and if you drop Seth a line at email@example.com, subject line ‘MINI for me’, he’ll get you a deal you can’t refuse.
It’s the least we can do.
