These are detailed changes that do not distort the image of the MINI in crossover and offroad format.
Small changes in front and behind
The first things you notice are the different bumpers, the newly modified mask, the full LED headlights standard on the whole range and the rear lights (always LED) which offer the luminous signature of the English flag already seen on the MINI Hatchback.
But the news of MINI Countryman restyling certainly do not end here and we discover them together with you pending the commercial launch of July. In Germany the base price is set at 26,600 euros for the MINI One Countryman.
New bumpers and full LED headlights for all
As mentioned, the MINI Countryman restyling 2020 starts right from the front to stand out from the previous model, offering a bumper with a modified shape and redesigned air intakes. Likewise the grid it changes in detail, while the headlamps, for the first time LED on the whole range, have a new style that allows to combine daytime running lights and direction indicators in a single luminous signature.
The LED fog lights also have the dual function of parking lights and other LED lamps are used in the rear lights that design theUnion Jack British. The rear bumper is also new and partially “cut”, with the addition of a metallic slide like the front one.
To this are added new alloy wheels from 17 “up to 19”, the glossy black finish of the eternal details and the new colors white and green called “White Silver metallic” and “Sage Green metallic”.
Digital instrument panel on request
Inside the MINI Countryman restyling we find new varieties of leather for the upholstery, the presence of the “Piano black” finishes on the Cooper S and Cooper SE, the sporty leather steering wheel on all versions and the height adjustment of the passenger seat. For the first time it is also possible to have the digital instrumentation on a 5 “screen.
The touch screen of the central 8.8 “infotainment is surrounded by a series of commands better integrated in the circular structure. Using the MINI Connected online services, you can always be updated and connected on real-time traffic, navigator maps, voice commands. Amazon Alexa and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
