MINI is testing the upcoming facelift in its hatchback range, and our spy photographers were ready to capture the moment.
They have spotted a Cooper S model while it was being tested. As you can observe, the vehicle was not as covered as you would expect a prototype to be.
Instead, it had camouflage around and on its headlights, as well as the front grille and parts of its hood. Similar bits of vinyl were present on the hatch’s ornament, rear bumper, and rear lights.
We have seen this situation before with BMW Group’s recent facelifts, which include the 1 Series. In the case of the German hatch, we are referring to a second Life Cycle Impulse in the range, and it did not require that many changes.
The same can be said for MINI, as its hatchback has been dramatically changed in some ways with the introduction of the new generation, and it does not need to be significantly altered to remain fresh.
