Comprehensive round of updates for the MINI in 2021
Comprehensive round of updates for the MINI in 2021

MINI Ireland has announced a comprehensive range of updates for the MINI 3-Door Hatch, the MINI Electric, the MINI 5-Door Hatch and the MINI Convertible.

There’s a fresh exterior look with the front now dominated by a larger radiator grille with 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 The position lights have been replaced by vertical air inlets to optimise aerodynamics and the central bumper strip is now in body colour, rather than black.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.

There are three new exterior paint finishes and five new light-alloy wheels. Rooftop Grey is now available on all models, with customers also now able to choose Island Blue (previously only available on MINI Countryman). The MINI Convertible gets an exclusive colour option with Zesty Yellow. There’s also a new Multitone Roof that features a colour gradient from San Marino Blue through Pearly Acqua to Jet Black, created with a new painting technique.

Inside the 2021 editions of the MINI 3-Door Hatch, MINI Electric, MINI 5-Door Hatch and MINI Convertible an 8.8-inch colour touchscreen display and Piano Black high-gloss surface are now standard. The audio control unit and function buttons for the hazard warning lights and driver assistance systems are said now to be integrated more harmoniously into the circular control unit. A newly-designed sports leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons will be part of the standard equipment of all model variants, as will the digital display behind the steering wheel.
