A mini makeover: facelifted Mini hatch and convertible here for 2018
Mini whipped the covers off its facelifted three-door, five-door and convertible ranges this week, with all three models picking up revised lighting systems, refined engines and new automatic transmissions. Indicators are horizontal, while the brake lights are vertical.
The only real change up front is to the headlights, which now see the LED ring around them illuminate in a full circle; and flash amber to work as a turn signal.
Wireless charging for mobile phones is also available as an option, located within the centre armrest storage compartment. It uses Matrix LED technology for the high beam, which has an anti-dazzle function for other road users.
Thanks to significant powertrain revisions that included a weight reduction, fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions have been reduced by up to five per cent.
The existing engines go largely unchanged, but the entry-level 1.2-litre petrol engine has been dropped in favour of a less potent version of the 1.5-litre turbo petrol that's already used on higher trim levels.
Under the skin, the arrival of a new seven-speed DCT gearbox promises faster gear changes and a slight improvement in economy, which can be specced on MINI One, MINI Cooper, MINI Cooper S and MINI Cooper D. A sports version of this with paddle shifters is offered on the Cooper S.
