the dimensions, design, space and interior ambience stay true to MINI’s conventionally powered vehicles, with a few model-specific elements. bright yellow body accents on the front grille and side mirror caps denote that this isn’t a typical MINI, while funky alloy wheels have been carried over from the 2017 MINI electric concept.
