These are the first pictures of the facelifted Mini hatchback, which will go on sale this summer.
Unsurprisingly, the exterior modifications are restricted to styling tweaks, as shown by the disguised parts on the spied car. These include the front air intakes, bumpers and lights.
Inside, expect to see similar materials to those shown in the Mini Countryman. The interior will feature new, classier surfaces, replacing some of the metal-effect finishes of the current model.
Mechanical changes are not expected, although a range of cleaner, more effecient engines is said to be under development.
The refreshed Mini hatch will go on sale around August.
