A quick update on our earlier report that the US spec MINIs would have different seat cushions than the rest of the world. It looks like we were only partially correct. While the gorgous “Lounge” leather seating (aka English leather on the R50 and R53) will indeed feature a simplified lower cushion, the other US spec MINI seats will be unchanged.

(The Lounge seating cushion design will be identical to the “English Leather” cushion found on the R52 and R53 with English Leather option)
