Mini Countryman will get easy changes

October 26, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

Mini Countryman receives updates to the front panel and rear without a special aesthetic overhaul of the overall appearance of the model. Ahead, the revised design focuses on rounding off some faces, softening the points around the headlights and the grille. Camouflage hides changes in the lower fascia, but the inlets are about the same size as the predecessor. Adaptive Matrix LED headlights are also claimed to be available on the updated model.

Camouflage hides much better design changes at the back. The lamps in the rear lights have a different shape, apparently in the style of “Union Jack” from other versions of Mini. Although the photo spies were unable to capture the interior, they claim that the upgraded Countryman has an updated interior that includes a large infotainment screen and minor style changes.

The engine range of the updated Countryman shouldn’t be much. The current version is represented by a 102-horsepower 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine and a 301-horsepower engine for JCW versions. The hybrid version has recently received an update, thanks to which the battery was increased to 10 kilowatt hours, and the electric range is up to 57 km.

    While the changes do not seem vast, the production version of the Mini Countryman, which we currently see in the pictures, will debut in the second half of 2020 as a model 2021 model year.
