The leaked images show significantly tweaked exteriors comprising redesigned taillights and a rimless center screen. There is no visible tailpipe of the car and a very limited amount of air intake on the front end, suggesting that it is going to be an electric or perhaps a hybrid model since there is a cap located on the right side of the body.

The spotted car can be seen featuring the “S" badging, suggesting that it is a higher-spec model. Also, one of the most significant changes on the outside of the new model is redesigned taillights that now get a new shape as well as interior pattern when compared to the lights found on the existing model.  The tail lamps are also connected by a horizontal black stripe across tailgate with "Cooper S" badging.

Although, one can see some physical controls on the steering wheel along with a few (stereotypically-Mini) switches placed underneath the screen. Needless to say, the frameless circular screen on the new Mini will be a touchscreen
