THE REFRESHED 2019 MINI range is on-sale now boasting a higher level of standard equipment, new infotainment system, colour and trim options, and a new-look lighting signature.

“The MINI hatch has been the best-seller in its segment over the last two years,” explains MINI Australia General Manager, Brett Waudby.

“This refresh simply enhances MINI’s product offering further, with key updates to connectivity, higher-quality materials and a fresh new look, mphasized by those fantastic Union Jack LED tail lamps,” he said.

Key changes include a new-look logo through to a new steering wheel and lights. An additional five exterior colour options have been added, available for both Hatch and Convertible. These include Solaris Orange, Emerald Grey, Starlight Blue, Melting Silver and Chili Red. Three additional 17-inch light alloy road wheels are optionally available for Cooper and Cooper S variants, including Roulette Spoke 2-tone, Rail Spoke 2-tone and Propeller Spoke 2 tone options.

As is fast becoming the norm, LED lights are taking over with all the lighting combined into one unit, now the turn indicators are incorporated with the main lights. At the rear are Union Jack styled tail lights (standard on Cooper S and John Cooper Works variants). As standard, the Cooper variants feature a Halogen front lighting system, with black edging to the headlight surrounds refreshing the appearance. LED tail lights are now used. An Adaptive LED system is optionally available.
