Munich. It’s often the little things that boost hallmark MINI driving fun even more. For example a testing look at the hubcabs of a MINI can reveal a driver’s true style. This is made possible by the new wheel hubcaps for MINI and John Cooper Works models in the MINI Original Accessory range. They don’t rotate with the wheel when driving and always show the brand logo in horizontal position. This innovative detail provides an amazing effect and makes the light alloy wheels even more attractive to look at.

Not upside down, not sideways, not diagonal – the position of the MINI and John Cooper Works logo always remains in the upright position even when the car is in motion with these new hubcaps. This is thanks to the floating hubcap design. Precisely positioned weights on the front of the cap and a flexible connection to the wheel hub extension ensure that the hubcaps remain horizontal when driving.

The standard covers can be swapped easily for the new wheel hubcaps in a few simple moves. They are available in two versions, either with the MINI or the John Cooper Works logo. The wheel hubcaps can be purchased both at the MINI subsidiaries and MINI partners as well as from the online MINI Shop at

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
