Your All-Around Trusted Winter Adventure Companion | MINI Richmond

Your All-Around Trusted Winter Adventure Companion


Cooler weather signals a different kind of fun for both outdoor enthusiasts and weekend warriors alike. Whether you enjoy strolling around the city to take in the seasonal changes of our cityscape or venturing further into nature and up the slopes to shred some powder, BC has definitely got a lot to offer.


Trust your MINI to be the ultimate adventure companion. From built-in safety features and MINI Roadside Assistance to a solid winterizing program and extra cargo space for your toys, your MINI has got your back no matter where and when you want to go. Let’s dive into some specifics below. 



MINIacs can attest to the exhilaration and comfort of getting behind the wheel of their MINI every single time. The latest safety innovations and tech that keeps everyone safe (and having a good time) in the all-new 2022 MINI includes:

  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Dynamic Stability Control
  • Parallel Parking Assist
  • Rear-View Camera with Park Distance Control
  • Driver Assistant System 
  • Invisible Rollover Protection System (Convertible models)
  • Variable Valve Timing & Valvetronic
  • 8 Airbags
  • And more! 

Please speak with our Motoring Advisor for full details on standard and available options on your MINI of interest. 



Whatever gear you’ve got to bring, whether it be skis, snowboards, snowshoes, or even extra snacks, your MINI has got a place for that. There’s plenty of boot space in the back and even more up top.


Extra cargo carriers can be added above, including the roof box and ski & snowboard holder atop roof racks (MINI Countryman comes standard with roof rails). For added convenience, the rear seats in MINIs can be folded down for additional space. And when you’re purchasing your new MINI you can also opt for the Storage Compartment Package which gives you extra cargo space underneath the trunk floor. Speak with our MINI experts today for all the storage secrets! MINI accessories are not just functional, they also look so good. 



Vancouverites may be tempted to stay lax on the winterizing front when it comes to their vehicles given the mild temperatures that we usually get. However, when the average temperature drops below 7°C, switching to MINI Approved Cold Weather Tires will provide you with the best possible performance and safety. They deliver maximum grip and enhanced traction on wet, snowy, and icy roads. Our Service and Parts department is ready to answer any questions you may have on how to get your MINI winter weather ready. We also have an affordable and convenient Tire Storage Program that will take care of and store your summer tires for you. Getting your MINI ready for winter is really this easy! You’ll also want to book your appointment now rather than later because we’re booking up quickly and expecting a shortage of winter tires this season.



MINI is here to help when you need it most. In the unlikely event that you need help on the road, swift and professional help is here for you 24/7, 365 days a year through our MINI Roadside Assistance hotline. Your MINI will be towed to a MINI Certified Collision Repair Centre if our technicians can’t fix your MINI on the spot.


Some of the coverage includes:

  • Emergency Services - battery boost, delivery of fuel, or lock and key service for lost keys and locked out drivers
  • Mechanical Breakdown - towing or flatbed transportation 
  • Emergency Message Service - helps you send a message via the MINI Accident Management Hotline to a family member, friend, or business associate in the event of an emergency.

Now that you have all the details on how your MINI is ready for your next winter escape, remember to tag @minirichmond in your adventures. Whether it’s the next mural find or the latest winter trail, we would love to see what you’ve discovered and spread some love by featuring your photos on our social media.
