MINI Packs Explained

27th May 2021

MINI Individuality

Personalisation, customisation and specification are all hugely important when looking at this iconic car, allowing owners to stand out and own a MINI that reflects their personality, style, taste and needs.

For new MINI buyers it is important to get the features you desire, whilst those looking at a used MINI may need clarification of what a pack on a used car includes, as it will have been put on when new.

Therefore, we thought we would put together a simple guide to help new and used MINI buyers when searching for their ideal MINI, so that they can make sure they have all the options they require.

In the guide below, we will firstly take a look at packs available to order with a new MINI. We will also cover packs found on used MINIs too. You can then browse our new and used MINI offers with a complete understanding of the options available.
