Default Someone was saying 07'X5 looked the same [Check NXT Gen Mini Cooper]

Next Generation Mini Cooper

Whats next about it, I cant see anything to distinguish it from the old one..now this is staying the same, worse than 911s, X5 had a major difference in comparison..

Anyhow for whoever that likes the mini, enjoy!!

Mainly beyond the front windscreen

1: Higher bonnet
2: New engines - not the chrysler Neon engines
3: Cheaper construction techniques

Various nip and tucks

It will be quite difficult to change the look of the Mini without making it look a totally new car altogether. Still, atleast we cant say that the 2007 version looks bad. Still a Cooper fan.

I'd rather call it a facelift.
