Last year, Mini came out with a value-focused Oxford Edition model aimed at college students and recent graduates in the US, featuring $6,900 worth of optional equipment at no extra cost.
Now, the well-equipped 2019 Mini Oxford Edition is also available to active duty members of the U.S. Military (any branch), as well as its recent retirees or honorably discharged members, as long as they apply for the car within a 12-month period after finishing their service.
“We’re proud to extend the MINI Oxford Edition offer to active and recently retired or honorably discharged members of the U.S. Military,” said Mini USA exec Patrick McKenna. “We believe the MINI Oxford Edition provides tremendous value to those who have honorably served in our armed forces and who are looking for a fun, stylish, feature-packed car that won’t break the bank.”
The Mini Oxford Edition has an MSRP of $19,750 for the 2-door version and $20,750 for the 4-door model – the pricing excludes the $850 destination and handling fee.
What you do get are standard features such as the Mini Connected Infotainment System with 6.5-inch display, rear view camera, park distance control and Mini Teleservices and emergency call. This spec also includes upgraded 17-inch wheels in silver or black, a choice of either a manual or an automatic transmission, dual-pane panoramic moonroof, heated seats and a choice of six exterior body colors; which you can check out in the gallery below.
The Mini Oxford Edition will continue to be available for eligible current full- or part-time students of any two- or four-year accredited college or university, as well as recent college graduates who are within 12 months of their graduation, and students enrolled in post-bachelor’s degree programs.
