New MINI Stuffed With New Features

Along with a series of spy photos of the F56 autoevolution's BMW Power blog describes the new features:
The new features that the model will have include a new dashboard that replaces the classic speedometer with a new multimedia system from BMW that has a pulsating light around it whenever the phone rings. Also, the front side of the car will sport new, optional full LED headlights that look impressive.

We should also expect the 8-speed automatic gearbox to be available on the new MINI along with turbocharged 1.5-liter engines with TwinPower technology that will have a range of power outputs from 100 to 200 HP.

Other new features will probably include the new Park Assist system and a rearview camera (that will come in handy for the Cooper, especially for the 5-door version which has some problems regarding rear visibility).
