BMW Group Malaysia has added Ingress Auto to the network of authorised MINI representatives in the country. The new MINI dealership, MINI Ingress, is scheduled to open on Jalan Maarof in Bangsar by the end of this year.

MINI Malaysia has also unveiled the two-wheel drive Cooper S Countryman. It continues to carry the 184 hp 1.6 litre direct-injected four-cylinder with a twin-scroll turbocharger. The OTR without insurance price tag of RM268,888 includes the MINI Tender Loving Care programme which covers inspection and wear and tear repairs for three years or 50,000 km, whichever comes first.

Occupying approximately 4,700 square feet, MINI Ingress will be the first in Malaysia to be equipped with the MINI Hub – the company’s customer centre concept – which features a cafe and lounge equipped with Apple devices.

“Last year alone, we delivered a record 300 MINIs and as of the month of September this year, we have already delivered 259 MINIs, a 15% increase from the same period last year,” said BMW Malaysia MD Dr Gerhard Pils.

“The location is very MINI,” he said of Bangsar, adding that the area had “a market capability of delivering more than 200 cars in the next two to three years.” Ingress Auto has been a BMW dealer since 2008.
