The Cooper S Kensington Edition adds to that 17-inch black- alloy wheels, full leather upholstery, sports seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and heated front seats.
All Kensington Editions come standard with Mini's 'Driver Assist Package' that includes key safety items like Auto Emergency Braking (branded as City Collision Mitigation), Forward Collision Warning, High Beam Assist, and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR).
