Mini is starting 2021 by revising its entire Mini model lineup. From the three-door Mini Hatch to the 5 door version to the electric hatch to the convertible variant, all model variants receive new design and technology upgrades. The refreshed exterior is defined by a larger radiator grille and its black, hexagonal surround, and the hallmark round Mini headlights. The position lights have been replaced by vertical air inlets to optimise aerodynamics and the central bumper strip is now in body colour, rather than black.
The wheel arch has new contours, the side indicators have been redesigned to feature LED technology and at the back of the car, the fog light is now integrated into the rear apron as a narrow LED unit. Three additional exterior body colours are now available. Rooftop Grey, Island Blue (a Mini Countryman exclusive) and Zesty Yellow. The Mini Classic, Sport & Exclusive trim packages have also been extended, offering customers a wider choice of exterior body colours, safety features and upholstery.
As part of the Piano Black Exterior option, the door handles, side scuttles, fuel cap, Mini logo on the bonnet and luggage compartment lid and model lettering and tailpipes of the exhaust system are now finished in high-gloss black, in addition to the surrounds of the headlights, radiator grille and rear lights.
A newly-designed sports leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons and a digital driver’s display will be part of the standard equipment of all model variants. Adpative suspension will be offered as an optional extra for the first time.
The 2021 Mini hatch range will be offered with a familiar lineup three or four-cylinder petrol engines. The 1.5-litre 3-cylinder engines are available in two versions, with outputs ranging from 75 kW/102 hp to 100 kW/136 hp. The 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine generates a maximum output of 131 kW/178 hp or 170 kW/231 hp in the two John Cooper Works models. All model variants comply with the Euro 6d emission standard.
The Mini Hatch range is offered 6-speed manual gearbox as standard. Pricing starts from £16,045 for the entry-level Mini Hatch and rises to £36,420 for the top-spec Mini Electric.
