The 2013 Mini Countryman is available to order now. The updated model has a number of changes, including a new centre console layout, upgraded interior trim and new paint colours.
One of the most significant changes is that the Coutryman's electric window switches have been moved from the centre console to the doors. As a result there are new door armrests and panels.
Mini says that moving the switches makes access to the storage compartment beneath the centre console easier, and allows the switches for the windows and door mirrors to be grouped in one location.
There are also new surrounds for the speedo and air vents; these are black with an inner ring in high-gloss black, or chrome for cars with a Chrome Line Interior option pack.
