MINI is Bringing Manual Transmission Back to Canada at MINI Edmonton

The MINI Cooper's initial purpose was to provide automotive consumers in Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, St. Albert, Sherwood Park, Leduc, and Fort Saskatchewan with a drive that they would not forget. A vehicle with a chassis and suspension that was sure to please, MINI knew it had a winner on their hands. Then they proceeded to add more power because they knew that is what their customers wanted. The MINI also offered a slick-shifting 6-speed manual that helped drivers feel fully connected with their vehicle. Driving excitement has always been a part of MINIs DNA; that's why when the third pedal made an exit, engagement wasn't quite there. Enthusiasts rejoice! MINI has announced that the manual transmission is making a comeback for 2021 after being absent for 2020MY.

MINIs manual gearbox has been a fan favourite for quite some time. Its perfectly spaced out gear ratios and short-throw shifting created that excitement in consumers that they expected. Buyers of the MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper S in both the three and five-door variants will have the opportunity to push down that third pedal once again. The 3-door with the John Cooper Works trim is also marked down to have the manual. However, the 2021 John Cooper Works GP that features 301 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque will be left off the list. This is because the 8-speed automatic has been perfectly engineered to pair with this powertrain. It was designed to take all that power and transfer it to the road effectively and efficiently. Below find the official press statement:

"Driving Excitement is in Minis DNA. Connecting to your MINI and to the road with that third pedal definitely drives excitement! Enthused Mat Sayer, Director, MINI Canada. Mini Canada is very pleased to see the return of the manual transmission to our most iconic models for the 2021 Model Year."
