MINI fans can look forward to introduction of new technology, new connectivity and a new range for 2018.

Improvements are being made to the three and five door hatch models and convertibles which will include standard-fit front and rear LED lights and an advanced dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

The new models are due for release in March.

MINI says the changes are focused on driver appeal and core new technologies, including MINI Connected Concierge services, wireless smartphone charging and options such as new anti-dazzle adaptive headlights with matrix high beam.

The LED lamps have a stronger, brighter beam pattern than the outgoing halogen headlamps, while the daytime running lamps and indicators are also LED-based, forming a new ring design around the headlights.

The rear lamps incorporate horizontal turn signals and vertical brake lamps within a new light cluster.

Also featured is a new logo which appears on the bonnet, tailgate, steering wheel and instrument display wjile all models have remote control central locking.

On the technical side, there are revisions to the powertrains with seven-speed dual clutch steptronic gearboxes now available alongside the standard six speed manual transmission

The steptronic transmission is offered on MINI One, MINI Cooper, MINICooperS and MINICooperD engine variants.

Prices for the new line up is still to be confirmed but for the automatics there will be no change with the transmission available from £15,910 for a three-door MINI One.
