You should not expect any noticeable changings on this novelty. Most of exterior details and interior features including technical characteristics will remain. However, the main difference is the soft top, which is the important addition.
This Cooper is also built on the UKL platform as the latest Clubman that is why the wheelbase will be longer than the current models have.
Meanwhile, the auto manufacturer promises to set some new infotainment features.
In addition, the novelty will be offered with the reserved camera, the head-up display, new assist systems such as the parking assist, collision and pedestrian warnings and even speed-limited system.
