We’ve got a scoop on what the US market will be seeing in the way of interior options. As with the R50 and R53, the US market will not offer all the options found elsewhere. However in exchange the US will get one exclusive interior choice.

After a brief scare for a few leatherette connoisseurs, we’ve been able to confirm that MINI USA will indeed be offering the faux leather as a no-cost options on the R56 MINI. The official name will be Carbon Black Leatherette. Look for it when the final US brochures hit dealerships after the first of the year.

However it is worth mentioning the the following cloth seat colors will not be available in the US market; Cosmos Carbon Black, Ray Carbon Black, and Ray Cream.

The US will have six dash options being the “Standard Cooper Dash”, “Standard Cooper S Dash” (looks like Alloy Patina), Fluid Silver Dash, Piano Black Dash, English Oak Wood (Real Wood), and Real Aluminum. There will be five different Colorlines for the new trim underneath the interior surface. Those will be Gotham Grey, Rooster Red, Pacific Blue, Mellow Yellow, and Cream White.
