4.5 inches longer than the previous generation. Sir Alec Issigonis must be turning in his grave.

The 4 cars together show how the bonnet line gets higher and the glass gets shallower with each BMW generation. Gee thanks collision safety regulations!! :/

Indeed! Would it have been so difficult to have a half moon on the right side of the speedo with proper gauges?

They could've at least placed them digitally in the screen. Hell, the Sonic does it better.

Yeah the rear lights are a bit too big, but otherwise I don't think they made any major mistakes.
The issue with Mini is that there are so many variants, and so many customizable options, its hard to determine the precise style of the car, so when you see this, you can't tell if its an all-new model or a gussied up older variant.

Here's a bit of joke-time (posted by someone on another forum)

Person A: The new MINI looks bigger.



Person A: It doesn't feel "MINI" anymore. Why is that?

Person B: Because Americans are now driving it



:p
