The main body and the roof top are separated. The car's glass surface with dark body columns creates a harmonious cover that extends across the whole vehicle.
Helped by a wide track and the short overhangs that emphasize the contours more than ever. This Mini is also the first vehicle in this segment to give an option for LED headlamps. These headlamps are surrounded by a LED daytime driving ring.
