The updates are centred around the Countryman’s interior, with most details previewed by the Paceman coupe’s recent Paris Motor Show reveal.
Key among these changes is the relocation of power window controls from the centre of the dash (until now a BMW-era MINI trademark) to a more conventional door trim location.
These door trims have been redesigned to accommodate the new switchgear, along with more comfortable armrests.
The dash panel, now free of window switches, has also been revised to allow improved access to the central storage cavity.
Interior colour and material options have also been broadened, along with a new Carbon Black colour applied to the trim rings that encircle the central speedometer and ventilation ducts.
The Countryman’s rear seat is now officially a three-seat configuration as standard, with the two seat layout remaining a no-cost option.
Local models already carry this default layout, after a recent running change to Australian spec.
European engine options remain as before, aside from manual Cooper Countryman’s 1.6 litre petrol four now meeting EU6 exhaust emission regulations.
On the outside, new Brilliant Copper and Blazing Red metallic finishes have joined the list of exterior finish options.
