Edition specific badging and special blacked-out MINI logos complete the exterior treatment.

As we approach spring and summer, this burst of colour from MINI is sure to bring a smile to fans all around the country,” commented Brett Waudby, General Manager for MINI in Australia and New Zealand on the new MINI Rosewood Edition Hatch.
