Mini says its new-for-2022 Hardtop and Convertible lineup includes several significant updates to design, technology, options, and equipment.
The company says the updates advance Mini’s pursuit to deliver a “unique fun-to-drive experience.”
They added that all 2022 Minis now come standard with a digital instrument cluster, lane-departure warning, and a 12-month subscription to SiriusXM regardless of trim level.
“These updates advance Mini’s pursuit to deliver a unique fun-to-drive experience with Mini’s hallmark iconic design and compact dimensions as the definitive British premium small-car brand,” the company said.
Mini says the exterior changes new air curtains up front and removal of the fog lights “to further enhance the clarity of the front end and provide improved aerodynamics.”
The front end now also has a single, unbroken hexagon grille that extends down, with the safety bar now hidden under a body color panel. Cooper S and John Cooper Works get two air intakes with high-gloss black surrounds to either side of the central intake.
The rear apron picks up the hexagonal graphic from the front, and the John Cooper Works now has a rear diffuser.
The new Minis also have new side scuttle designs and wheel arch trims. LED headlamps are now standard.
Inside, the 8.8-inch center screen is now standard across the board and has a new user experience “with a completely modernized look and feel, configurable live widgets, and two available color schemes (Lounge & Sport),” the company says.
Mini has upped the standard safety equipment, making its driving assistant standard and having it include lane-departure warning and active cruise control.
