Here it is folks, the revision everyone has been waiting to see. This is our first glimpse at the updated interior that will launch as part of the 2011 refresh. MINI hasn’t completely rethought the interface but they have tweaked it while also using high-grade matte black materials as touch points. The big change (and the one we don’t see here) is the totally redesigned navigation system. The new nav will be hard drive based, feature MINI Connect and will be much (much) faster.

We’ll have much much more early next week with the official details drop.
