The MINI grille now features a horizontal red stripe rather than an outline; standard LED headlights in a new shape, and at the rear, union jack designs in the LED rear lenses.
New colours are White Silver metallic and Sage Green metallic. These can be teamed with the new Piano Black Exterior option that darkens the headlamp surrounds, rear lights, radiator grille, door handles, as well as model lettering on the luggage compartment lid.

There’s an eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission and ALL4 all-wheel drive and an electronic front differential lock that guarantees traction on just about any surface.
There’s a zero to 100km/h time of just 5.1 seconds.
The interior has a new refined surface around the circular control unit in the centre instrument panel, and a new digital instrument display is also standard on the JCW Countryman.
