Though changes are not something to write home about, i will say that it is in general busier than the current generation. Lines are less clean, so to say. It also looks a bit bulkier, which is definitely not a good thing in a car named like that.
I will wait for the whole info, but for the moment i do not like what i see.
The detailing of the front and rear bumpers is pretty bad. Like it's been said, too busy, and I'd say almost tacky-looking. The Mini Vision concept had such clean lines and simple elements, but it all went down the drain it would seem.
It's more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow.
is it just me or is the 'new' Mini getting progressively worse? The proportions are just wrong! Look at how the windscreen "aspect ratio" has changed, normally wider and lower is better, but in a cute and retro car maybe that rule doesnt apply
