Quirky new accessory packs launched for the new MINI Cooper

MINI has launched a new range of exterior and interior accessories for the latest third-generation MINI Cooper. Classic touches such as roof and side decals, exterior and interior mirror caps and spot lamps have all been made available.

A new feature is an exterior and interior design concept, made up of four new Mini ‘characters’ called, Vivid Green, Speedwell Blue, John Cooper Works Pro and Essential Black. Each can be fitted with unique features and optional extras.

There are nine variations of roof decals available for the standard roof and six for the optional glass roof. New 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels are also available, with the hubcaps on the smaller wheels available with a Chilli Red, Apple Green, Bright Yellow or Bright Orange finish.

One of the newest options is a ‘MINI key cap’ feature. The system uses Near Field Communication (NFC) allowing the driver to connect their smart phone to the keyfob, meaning individual settings can be detected and applied to the car as soon as the driver gets in.
