Revised versions of the Mini Cooper S and Cooper Clubman have been spied ahead of their launch later in the summer.

The revisions to the range are minor, highlighted by the little effort that's gone into disguising the cars.

Changes include subtle revisions to the front headlights, foglights and bumpers, while some exterior details such as the revised air intakes are borrowed from the larger Mini Countryman.

Our spy photographer noted that much of the interior and dash was disguised, which indicates there will be some Countryman-inspired changes inside, too.

Mechanical revisions aren't expected aside from improvements to boost economy and reduce CO2 emissions. The revised Mini range is tipped to go on sale in the UK in August.

Nah, you've got it wrong this is the same rubbish they've been churning out for years. I can't wait not to see one on the road.

I'm struggling to find the differences from the photos posted. Had I been in the market for a new Mini Cooper and found out the facelift was imminent then saw this sat in a showroom I would be pretty upset not being able to really see the differences. I know it's been a winning formula but calling this a facelift is really scraping the barrell.

Visually, the exterior is the standard BMW facelift - Bonnet, bumbers and lights.

It always amuses me though when the car is virtually undisguised and they still tape up the badges. As if you'll be stood there thinking "Is it a Punto..?"
