All-new Mini Countryman gets optional AirTop roof tent upgrade

Thinking of bringing your Countryman to the great outdoors? Mini Philippines is offering a new feature for the new-generation crossover in the form of an optional roof tent. It's essentially a portable living space that can be installed on top of the Countryman.

Made by renowned Italian roof tent maker Autohome, the special edition AirTop roof tent was designed in cooperation with the Mini Design Team. It is available in either black or white and can be installed via the Countryman's roof rails and roof rail carrier (available from Mini Shop).

Mounting the AirTop roof tent on the Countryman can be done without the need for tools according to Mini. The roof attachment system can be mounted on the roof rail carrier in just a few easy steps. The roof rail carrier will act as the foundation and will come with steel clamps for better stability.

The tent's inner linings are made from durable fiberglass while the outer walls have high-quality fabric that is rain proof. The structure can then be raised with the use of four gas pressure springs. Inside, the tent has a maximum interior height of 94 cenitmeters, comes with a mattress with cotton cover, two doors and two window zips. It also has a sleeping area of 2.10 meters in length and 1.30 meters in width.

There are even close-meshed mosquito nets on all openings and a battery-operated LED light. An aluminum ladder is provided to climb up onto the roof tent.

The Mini Autohome AirTop roof tent is now available with a retail price of PhP 250,000 and comes with an original Mini Crossbar. The new tent is now available through Mini Global City, Mini Retail Outlet in Molito, Alabang and in Mini Cebu.
