Wisely, owners BMW keep the formula fresh and for 2018 the MINI hatch gains subtle revisions to its design, a new choice of engines and plenty of fresh tech for the interior. Button Label
Design Front and rear LED lights are among the striking features of the new models, with the rear taillights gaining a Union Jack motif. The British origin of the Cowley-built MINI are clearly part of its appeal both in the UK and overseas. There’s a new version of the MINI badge on the bonnet with the exterior colour showing beneath the ‘wings’, too. New colours in the range are Solaris Orange, Starlight Blue and Emerald Grey and you can choose from an even wider range of decorative graphics to personalise your MINI. Button Label

Safety MINI’s safety features include Dynamic Stability and Traction Control to provide the optimum grip on all driving surfaces, with Dynamic Stability Control intervening to keep the vehicle on line by applying braking force to individual wheels. The optional MINI Driving Assistant offers a camera-based active cruise control to monitor traffic in front and apply the brakes if it slows. Other safety technology includes Pedestrian Warning and Collision Mitigation, which scan the streets and apply the brakes if they detect trouble ahead. Button Label
