Redesigned Mini Cooper Available With More Design Options
As if the Mini Cooper didn't have enough personality already, the redesigned 2014 model will offer a larger variety of design choices. The 2014 Mini Cooper will debut four new design themes, each one serving to unify the interior and exterior of the car. "Vivid Green" sprays the car inside and out with lime green accents against a black background while "Speedwell Blue" represents a distinctly British red, white, and blue theme. The John Cooper Works Pro is inspired by racing, while Essential Black features a more subtle yet elegant design. These four design themes reveal themselves in many places on the car, including the floor mats, mirror caps, roof and side graphics, sun protection elements, door sill cover strips, luggage compartment, car covers, and side indicator surrounds. Mini is also keeping some old design favorites. Buyers can still opt for Union Jack roof graphics and other popular elements such as Gold Jack, Black Jack, and classic chequered patterns throughout the car. New for 2014 is a revised selection of rims. The redesigned Mini Cooper can be had with 18-inch aluminum rims or 17-inch alloy wheels. Hub caps on the silver and black alloy wheels can be finished in shades of red, orange, green, or yellow. Other than new design elements, Mini is also adding a feature that will make it easier for drivers to customize the interior settings to their choosing. Mini is debuting a new key cap which is able to communicate with the owner's smartphone. This new key is able to activate Bluetooth, volume control, or app launch with the simple click of a button, so the driver's individual settings are detected immediately as he or she enters the car. These new features will be available when the redesigned Mini Cooper launches this spring. Expect more power and added interior refinement on this new model, which we had the chance to preview in Puerto Rico recently. Source: Mini
