Starting with the headlights, the 2019 MINI Hardtop 2 Door, new MINI Hardtop 4 Door and the MINI Convertible get more expressive headlights, with optional LED lighting.

The the new year, Mini gave its original two-door and four-door model as well as the convertible a freshening.

Changes are the same, including new headights with adaptive LED, redesigned stoplights embedded with the Union Jack motif, new rims and exterior colors, as well as a ton of customization options.

Inside, there's a new leather seat upholstery and a piano black package for the doors, centre console and instrument panel. Three new body finished for the cars include Emerald Gray metallic, Starlight Blue metallic, and Solaris Orange metallic. At the base is a 1.5-litre, three-cylinder petrol that produces 102hp in the Mini One, and the most efficient is a diesel of the same capacity that enables a claimed 26.3kpl in the Cooper D auto. For the first time Mini is offering Find Mate for its 2018 range, which consists of wireless tracking tags that can be placed on items that you carry in the vehicle regularly, so you can find them if they are misplaced or lost.

Mini's recently-revealed new 'stripped down' logo also makes its production-debut, used extensively across both the interior and exterior.

Inside, every model gains at least a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, plus Bluetooth, while there's a new steering wheel.

But one of the biggest upgrades to the Mini for 2018 is the introduction of a new seven-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch and electronic shift selector.

The team at Mini has just released details of the refreshed Mini Hatch and Convertible for 2018.

Expanding its scope on the style front, the MINI Yours Customised range offers personalisation options via an online shop, for items such as side scuttles, decorative strips for the interior on the passenger side, LED door sill finishers and LED door projectors.

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.
