The trio packs an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment console along with an optional 5.0-inch digital instrument cluster. For safety, dual airbags, traction and stability control, a rear-view camera, ABS, and parking sensors are available.
The 2021 MINI 3-Door, Convertible, and JCW are powered by a BS6-compliant 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine.
