Today MINI announces a profound makeover for the MINI 3 doors, he MINI 5 doors and the MINI Convertible. British car manufacturer premium it reaffirms the position of these three models with an expressive design and personal style, which continues to ensure driving fun.
The MINI 2021 will arrive in our market throughout the month of March and they will do so not only with aesthetic novelties, but also with a revamped interior, more equipment and an extra dose of technology. Easily instantly recognizable, the new MINIs look a completely new front, with a revised grille and a body-colored insert.
The model also features new LED headlights as standard across the range, a larger grille edge and a new front bumper with air intakes whose design varies depending on the mechanics chosen. The characteristic Side Scuttles of the side indicators also now have a new design.
Other novelties of the side view go through the marked wheel arches, five new tire designs alloy and up three new colors in the model palette. Additionally, all models feature several new customization options, including a multi-tone ceiling.
If we pass behind, we will see a redesigned rear bumper and LED taillights with British flag design “Union Jack” now standard. Perhaps the most attractive versions are the Cooper S that have a double exhaust outlet in a central position, which gives them a very sporty touch.
Inside we see new surfaces, air vents and trim. Other highlights are the instrument cluster with 5-inch color display, a new optional heated leather-wrapped steering wheel and an available laser-etched LED light ring that surrounds the infotainment system with 8.8 inch screen.
There are high-value details in the interior, such as sports seats in the new Light Checkered color or the new ambient lighting with expanded functions as an option.
On a technical level, some optimizations have also been introduced. For example, the adaptive chassis now features continuous damping with selective frequency. The electric parking brake is also introduced for the first time and the Active Cruise Control (active cruise control) now has function Stop & go.
For safety, MINI tells us about a new Lane Departure Warning (warning of involuntary lane change) and bad weather light. All this will be framed within a new equipment offer which allows for specific customization, but I’m afraid we’ll have to wait for these details and their pricing.
As for the engines, the family remains with the 1.5 Turbo 102 (75 kW) and 136 hp (100 kW) used in the One and Cooperin addition to the 2.0 Turbo four-cylinder with 178 hp (131 kW) for Cooper S. Also the MINI Electric with 184 hp (135 kW) and John Cooper Works with 231 CV (170 kW).
