Mini has launched a couple of new prototypes for testing.

Photo spies captured two prototypes of the updated Mini Countryman, one of which has a yellow box with the inscription AIP Automotive, which is connected to the exhaust system and measures emissions while the car is moving. Thus, Mini wants to make Countryman as clean as possible.

The novelty has camouflage on the back of the car, which means the appearance of new rear lights. The second prototype, which was photographed parked, did not have camouflage disguise at all, but the body was covered with a cover. However, all the tai were able to shoot new lights, as well as other exhaust pipes and artificial diffusers.

The interior of the updated Mini Countryman will receive a fully digital “tidy”, as well as an updated center console with a large touch screen on which the controls were moved.

Recall that from next year, environmental standards will be tightened in Europe, which require that the average emissions for new cars be reduced to 95 g CO2 / km. In addition, fuel consumption should be about 4.1 liters per 100 km for gasoline cars and 3.6 liters per 100 km for diesel engines.

Thus, car companies face heavy fines, according to a JATO report on the study of the automotive market, more stringent companies will make companies “fork out” for a whopping 34 billion euros ($ 36.7 billion).
