To celebrate this and the launch of the new BMW 5 Series saloon and the new MINI Countryman, Lloyd Cockermouth hosted a launch event on Thursday evening with over 200 guests in their incredible new facilities.

Delicious canapés by Shills of Cockermouth and cocktails from Lakes Distillery were served throughout the evening, before the highlight of evening – the unveiling of the brand new BMW 5 Series Saloon and MINI Countryman models.

First on stage was the incredible new BMW 5 Series saloon. Bringing together BMW’s heritage of innovation and design excellence to perform stunningly, both on the eye and on the road, this car is certainly in a class of its own. Choose between a selection of powerful and economical BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol or diesel engines. With up to 1,670 litres of space, you can get truly comfortable and feel how technology and innovation work seamlessly together.

The award winning BMW 5 Series Saloon has been crowned 'Overall Car of the Year', as well as 'Best Luxury Car' at the annual What Car? Car of the Year 2017 awards.

Next up was the new MINI Countryman, which was driven into the new showroom through an atmospheric cloud of smoke. This new model is the most versatile MINI to date. With more space than ever before and a range of technology as standard including MINI Navigation, this is the ultimate car for the ultimate adventure.

The new model can comfortably seat up to 5 passengers, and now with even more legroom, the tallest of passengers can comfortably stretch their legs out on long journeys, from city trips to country getaways. What’s more, the new improved boot can hold up to 450 litres – an impressive 100 litres more than the previous MINI Countryman model.

The new MINI Countryman is made for adventure so for a true off-road look, every MINI Countryman comes with roof rails and side sills in silver as standard. Stay in control regardless of the condition with the optional 4-wheel drive system.
