The 2018 Mini Cooper Hatch and 2018 Mini Cooper Convertible facelifts have just been revealed globally, and they bring with them, a host of upgrades and new standard features including CarPlay integration. The new 2018 Mini Cooper hatchback and convertible models will now feature a 7-speed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission (DCT) option which replaces the six-speed auto found on the generation of Mini cars, as well as the fifth engine option of a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol motor which produces 190Nm. The 2018 Mini models also receive additions to their standard equipment, which include LED taillamps with a Union Jack (UK national flag) imprint. The 2018 Mini also features LED headlamps with single-ring DRLs. The badging on the 2018 Mini Cooper has also been refreshed, and there are now three additional paint options. Mini also offers the option of 3D-printed, customised exterior trim pieces.

Inside the 2018 Mini Cooper, a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system is now standard, and it packs in Apple CarPlay, Mini Navigation, Mini Connected Services with Real-Time Traffic Information (RTTI), Natural Language Understanding, and Concierge Service. Mini has also included a wireless smartphone charger in the list of kit. The 2018 Mini will be launched internationally by mid-2018, and could subsequently come to India. Currently, in its various forms, the Mini comes with a 2-litre petrol, or 1.5-litre and 2.-litre diesel options. The most bonkers of them is the twin-turbo 2-litre petrol motor on the Mini Cooper S JWC Pro Edition, which we had loved.
