MINI Opened up their very first showroom in Sri Lanka a few months back. We dropped in to have a look at their latest models.
This isn't our usual M.O. but there was quite a lot of press floating around about the new MINI showroom on Castle Street, so we were excited when we finally got the chance to the check the place out. We aren't experts on cars so this one is just our opinion with some facts about the vehicles thrown in.
They've currently got two models for sale, the 2 door MINI Cooper 2014 and the 4 door MINI Cooper Countryman. They've both got updated looks but they maintain the signature MINI style, along with some updated specs under the hood. These guys understand that it's a way of life and you more or less adopt a MINI, so they issue a birth certificate and ID card for all the cars, which is a nice attention to detail and something many would appreciate. They also allow you to take the cars out for test drive if you want to see how they feel on the road.
It's located on Castle Street (Dudley Senanayake Mw.) just after the Kynsey Road junction heading out of Colombo. It's hard to miss with a red Mini Cooper attached vertically to its front wall.
