The front end, sides, and rear bumper are all relatively familiar, however, retaining MINI's essential styling themes, shared across most of the lineup. The large headlights, short hood, contrasting mirrors and roof, plastic fenders, and bluff tail all tie the new two-seater in with the hatchback and clubman. There's also an active rear spoiler that pops up at speed.
Inside, the style is all familiar MINI, complete with all the quirky themes and toggle switches of other MINIs, including the oversized, center-mounted speedometer surrounding the infotainment display. The rear seats are gone, however, with speakers and a storage binnacle in a bulkhead right behind the front seats.
