MINI is today announcing an all-new trim structure across its whole range of vehicles in the UK market. Carefully designed to make it easier than ever to choose the perfect MINI, the brand is introducing three new styles which will enable a complete vehicle to be created in five simple steps.
Classic, Sport and Exclusive – three new styles, each offering customers increased standard specification and a shortcut to a distinctive interior and exterior character of their choice. The trio of styles not only simplifies the ordering process, but also aligns the equipment offering across the MINI range for the first time. Standard specification has been enhanced, with the introduction of automatic headlights with rain sensors, MINI Excitement Pack including ambient interior lighting, exterior MINI Logo projection and more as standard on every model.
Personalisation remains at the core, with each of the three styles further customisable from the brand’s extensive range of exterior, interior, safety and technology options, allowing customers to create their own truly unique MINI.
In order to further simplify the ordering journey for its customers, MINI has launched fully end-to-end online buying on its website. Choosing and customising a model, booking a test drive, arranging a trade-in, finance, payment and handover can all be completed online – day or night – on https://www.mini.co.uk.

Five easy steps to your brand-new MINI.
MINI has refined the ordering process into five simple steps. A customer can effortlessly specify a vehicle in minutes, by choosing one of the three new styles. For those who do love to customise, these changes have not been made by sacrificing the brand’s famous personalisation, with each of the three styles further customisable from the brand’s extensive range of options.
Step 1 Choose your model.
Five cars, one spirit. Choose from the MINI 3-door Hatch, MINI 5-door Hatch, MINI Convertible, MINI Clubman or MINI Countryman.
Step 2 Choose your engine.
One, Cooper, Cooper D or Cooper S. With power outputs ranging from 102 hp to 192 hp, offering emissions as low as 55 g/km*, or thrilling performance from 0-62 mph in just 6.7 seconds, there’s an engine to suit every lifestyle.
Step 3 Choose your style.
Classic, Sport or Exclusive. Bringing together the best of MINI in three new carefully curated styles, customers can choose the character that best represents their personality and taste.
Chose Classic for iconic MINI style – unmistakeable and timeless. Sport – for an athletic look inside and outside the vehicle, with an aerodynamic body kit and sport bucket seats. Exclusive completes the trio – upgraded alloy wheels, exquisite leather upholstery and unique interior trim makes this style the crème de la crème.
Step 4 Choose your packs.
Complete your vehicle by selecting from two new packs - Comfort or Comfort Plus. Combining MINI customer favourites into two convenient choices, these packs add a range of functionality including rear park distance control (PDC), dual zone automatic air conditioning, seat heating and more.

Step 5 Personalise.
Personalising the vehicle is the fifth and final step in the new customer journey. The MINI brand is renowned worldwide for its extensive range of exterior, interior, safety and technology options, allowing customers to create their own truly unique vehicle. Each of the three new styles can be further customised with the addition of options specifically tailored to the look and feel of their vehicle.
Introduction of new packs.

CO2 EMISSIONS & CONSUMPTION.
The fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electric power consumption figures were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany, and may vary during configuration.
The values for the vehicles marked * are already based on the new WLTP test cycle and have been translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure comparability between the vehicles. With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle-related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2 emissions, the CO2 values may differ from the values stated here (depending on national legislation).
The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the latest version of the Pkw-EnVKV, and based (for classification) on the fuel consumption and CO2 values as per the NEDC cycle.
Further information on official fuel consumption figures and specific CO2 emission values of new passenger cars is included in the following guideline: 'Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen' (Guideline for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electric power consumption of new passenger cars), which can be obtained free of charge from all dealerships and at https://www.dat.de/en/offers/publications/guideline-for-fuel-consumption.html.
