BMW's MINI has introduced facelifted versions of its 3-door, 5-door and convertible hatchbacks. Set to be launched in the global markets in March this year, the latest models have been revised inside out.

The cars feature new front fascia, extensively redesigned cockpit, new exterior paint finishes, light-alloy wheels, new seating surfaces as well as innovative technology. The latest MINI 3-door including the MINI Cooper SE, the MINI 5-door and the MINI Convertible's front is now dominated more than ever by the characteristic radiator grille, the hexagonal surround of which now takes up significantly more space. The position lights are replaced by vertical air inlets placed far to the outside. LED units for the low beam and the high beam ensure bright and even illumination of the road. A circumferential light band takes on the function of the daytime running lights and the turn indicators.
