On the inside, the car gets an updated infotainment head unit. It gets a new software with better graphics and Live Widgets, which can be selected by a means of a swiping motion on the touchscreen. Additionally, there are some new ambient lighting options. In "Lounge" mode, the display surfaces appear in shades of blue and turquoise, which when switched to "Sport" mode also changes the screen backgrounds to glow in red and anthracite. On request, the colours of the displays can be linked to the driving modes that are standard in the Mini John Cooper Works.
