2019 Mini Cooper Clubman
The “new” Mini Cooper looks virtually unchanged from last year’s model, save for the Union Jacks which now illuminate to let other drivers know sir or madam will be slowing down. it’s the first real life application of the taillights on the John Cooper Works GP concept revealed back in September. It’s a quirky, smart design that emphasizes Mini’s heritage. But we can’t help feeling BMW, the German company that owns Mini, is trying just a little too hard to push the brand’s British-ness.
Aside from the new rear lights, the 2019 Mini Cooper gets a Union Jack on the dash (of course), new alloy wheels, a new multifunction steering wheel, standard USB and bluetooth connections, wireless phone charging, LED headlights, optional upgraded touchscreen radio navigation systems, and even more custom paint colors and interior trims to choose from.
Updated pricing has yet to be revealed. Expect the 2019 Mini Cooper to land in showrooms later this year.
