BMW has highlighted that the revamped version of its Mini five-door model brings with it a number of interior updates that maximize the revised platform’s greater footprint.

The wheelbase, which is 72mm longer than that of the Mini three-door, and the body length, which has been increased by 160mm, have allowed the Mini’s designers greater freedom to improve interior comfort.

The styling language has also been revised, for example, the air vents are now flush with the interior surfaces, and the trademark central instrument cluster has been updated with an 8.8in touchscreen display. BMW notes there is also now an optional multifunctional instrument display and the button arrangement and functionality of the steering wheel has been adjusted.

Attention has been paid to the interior illumination and lights, which BMW says are tailored to create a ‘snug’ feeling interior. Furthermore, the graphical displays on both the instrument panel and digital cockpit can be altered depending on driver mood; various modes, including ‘Lounge’ and ‘Sport’, have their own distinctive color schemes. The settings for the displays can be further matched to the ‘Mini Driving Modes’ and combined with numerous lighting color schemes thanks to a new ‘Ambient Light’ option.
