The updated 2019 Mini Cooper is now slightly British-er

12 January 2018

MINI has unveiled the updated 2019 MINI Cooper hardtop 2 door, 4 door and convertible models, which are going to debut next week at the Detroit Auto Show. Indicators are horizontal, while the brake lights are vertical.

Off the top, new optional LED headlights help modernize the front end aesthetic and headlight performance of the Mini. This motif was previewed by the John Cooper Works GP Concept at last year's Frankfurt motor show.

Connectivity continues as a theme for the 2019 upgrades, with available real-time traffic information via 4G LTE, Apple CarPlay, and the Mini Connected app now integrating navigation and calendaring.

Thanks to significant powertrain revisions that included a weight reduction, fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions have been reduced by up to five per cent.

However the Mini One (which does get a new engine in the form of a detuned version of the Cooper's 1.5), won't be part of the South African line-up any more, which is sad because it was arguably the pick of the bunch. Torque outputs for these variants have not been disclosed yet.

In the One, One D and Cooper, the old torque converter automatic has been switched out for a more efficient dual-clutch automatic, while high-powered models stick with an eight-speed torque converter. A sports version of this with paddle shifters is offered on the Cooper S. Both automatics are represented by an all-new gear selector. There are also new exterior colors, like Emerald Grey metallic, Starlight Blue metallic, and Solaris Orange metallic. The new logo is also available as a puddle light, projected below the driver's side mirror.

That's about all the updating the interior gets, though, besides Bluetooth and a 6.5-inch infotainment screen being made standard; wireless phone charging and an 8.8-inch screen being made options; and a new Malt Brown Chesterfield leather upholstery option being added.
