Source: BMW GroupLake d’Iseo is a paradise for camping enthusiasts. On a trip along the streets in the MINI Cooper S Countryman ALL4, you can discover many picturesque places to stay at the lake. If you are looking for a change and want to change your location every day, you can travel in style and spontaneously with a sleeping place inspired by the MINI design and mounted on the roof of the five-door all-rounder. Munich. The Mediterranean is still far away, but there is certainly no lack of cool water in the northern Italian region of Lombardy. Whether on the glamorous Lago di Como or on Lake Garda, which has been popular with guests from Germany for decades: Clear tides, a light wind and the mountain panorama of the pre-Alps attract tourists everywhere. Lake Iseo is particularly popular with camping enthusiasts. The number of campsites right on the lake is so large that it is difficult to decide on the perfect overnight accommodation. Vacationers who want to explore as much as possible of the picturesque landscape and the picturesque places with small harbors, pretty promenades and quaint restaurants in a short time, travel in a motorhome. Or you can use the new MINI Cooper S Countryman ALL4 (combined fuel consumption: 6.5 – 6.2 l / 100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 149 – 142 g / km). It offers significantly more driving fun on the narrow riverside roads, is agile on the road even off the beaten track and transports two comfortable beds to places that are inaccessible for classic camping vehicles. This is made possible by a roof tent specially designed for the MINI Countryman from the Italian manufacturer AUTOHOME. With him, spontaneous changes of location on Lake Iseo are pure pleasure. The mobile night camp was created in cooperation with the MINI design team and is available in black or white, the paint finishes that are also available as a contrasting color for the roof and the exterior mirror caps of the five-door all-rounder. With its special fastening system, it can be easily attached to the optional roof rails and the cross members available in the MINI Original Accessories range on the roof of the largest model of the British premium brand. When closed, the solid fiberglass housing of the roof tent resembles a transport box, its flat, aerodynamically optimized shape reduces air resistance and wind noise when traveling to Lombardy. The new MINI Cooper S Countryman ALL4 has no problems with its role as a travel vehicle. After folding down the rear seat backrest, which can be divided as standard in a ratio of 40:20:40, the trunk volume increases from 450 to 1,390 liters. In addition to holiday luggage and sleeping bags, one or the other essential utensil for stylish outdoor holidays can be accommodated: be it the camping grill for preparing a char freshly caught from the lake or the espresso machine with a connection to the 12 volt -Socket in the luggage compartment. Thanks to a maximum permissible payload of 560 kilograms, the new MINI Cooper S Countryman ALL4 will not soon reach its transport limits. If you look at Lake Iseo on the map, you will see an elongated “S” that is quite similar to the one on the Side Scuttles and the radiator grille of the MINI Cooper S Countryman ALL4. And its agile driving behavior also fits perfectly into the landscape. On the winding country roads of Lombardy, the premium compact model immediately proves its sporty temperament, even with a generous load. Its 131 kW / 178 hp four-cylinder engine with MINI TwinPower Turbo technology, the standard 8-speed Steptronic transmission and the optionally available adaptive chassis ensure that the anticipation of camping is mixed with unmistakable driving pleasure between Bergamo in the west and Brescia Lago d’Iseo in the west can be completely circled on roads near the shore. Spectacular views of the water and mountains invite you to stop at the edge of the road, while the way to particularly idyllic bathing areas and camping areas sometimes leads over unpaved dirt roads. The all-wheel drive ALL4 helps here. The electronically controlled system with lightning-fast reactions ensures that the drive force between the front and rear wheels is distributed as required at all times under all weather and road conditions. In this way, you can also head to a somewhat secluded, but particularly quiet, place to spend the night without any problems. After releasing the safety locks on the housing, the tent structure is raised automatically with the help of four gas pressure springs. When you then move into the mobile hostel, it becomes clear that the brand-typical principle of clever use of space also applies to camping holidays with the MINI. The roof tent is equipped with a foldable aluminum ladder that can be used to climb the upper floor of the MINI Cooper S Countryman ALL4. Inside there is a comfortable sleeping space for two on a high-density mattress with a cotton cover over a length of 2.1 meters and a width of 1.30 meters. LED interior lighting, doors and windows with zippers and mosquito nets, luggage nets and bags make the box seat with a view of Lake Iseo perfect. Camping turns into an individual holiday in the typical MINI style.
