Due to launch in the United Kingdom on March 17, Mini's core models now come with front and rear LED lights as standard and optional matrix LED high beams.

Compared to the usual 3-door hardtop Mini, the new Convertible is basically the same, the biggest difference being the electrically foldable fabric roof, of course, which takes 18 seconds to retract and let the wind in your hair.

Headlines? Along with some new paint colours like "Solaris Orange" and "Starlight Blue" (both pictured) and some fresh alloy wheel designs, all United Kingdom cars come with LED headlights as standard with the option to step up to dazzle-free Matrix LED ones.

Perhaps the most noticeable update will be the new LED tail lamps with the Union Jack design, which were created as a supplement to the new LED headlights.

An all-new, two-dimensional "Mini" logo has been rolled out for the first time, appearing on the bonnet, tailgate, steering wheel, multimedia system and remote control in all models.

The existing engines go largely unchanged, but the entry-level 1.2-litre petrol engine has been dropped in favour of a less potent version of the 1.5-litre turbo petrol that's already used on higher trim levels.

The updated Minis also expand the list of custom features available in the company's Mini Yours Customized inventory, conceived to help owners lend individuality to their cars.

In the One, One D and Cooper, the old torque converter automatic has been switched out for a more efficient dual-clutch automatic, while high-powered models stick with an eight-speed torque converter. In terms of rolling stock, the optional range of wheels grows to include two-tone roulette spoke and two-tone propeller spoke items which are now available across all MINI bodystyles.

The interior got a new steering wheel along with new materials and optional features. MINI has also integrated a storage compartment in the centre armrest console for wireless charging of phones.

Connectivity continues as a theme for the 2019 upgrades, with available real-time traffic information via 4G LTE, Apple CarPlay, and the Mini Connected app now integrating navigation and calendaring.
