What's New for 2018: Mini

December 12, 2017

Mini's lineup isn't quite as maxi as it was a couple of years ago. That's a good thing since it has allowed the BMW-owned British icon to dial down overlap between models that didn't really have a mission.

Today's lineup is more focused on what consumers really want—the standard Cooper in classic three-door and more practical five-door configurations and the Cooper Countryman crossover.

This year's changes are modest: the Cooper adds some features to its standard equipment roster, while the Countryman is now available with the brand's first-ever plug-in hybrid powertrain.
