The MINI Cooper’s iconic looks have done it once again, this time winning the 2018 ‘autonis’ design award, as the most beautiful new model in its class. Now I know you’re asking, “what do you mean new model?” when the MINI has turned heads since its introduction to the public in 1959. Also, what the heck is an ‘autonis’?
First, the ‘autonis’ award is named as such as its given out by ‘auto, motor und sport’ magazine. This year, when asking their readers (for the 18th year in a row) to vote for “the most beautiful cars in 2018,” MINI drove away victorious in the small car class—winning by a large margin, we might add. Facing five competitors, the MINI garnered 30.3% of all the votes (and that’s no small feat).
Of course, to answer your other question, the 2018 version of the MINI was eligible due to its exceptional redesign. LED headlights and taillights, the latter of which emblazoned with a Union Jack, housed with chrome accents, are a bright addition to the MINI’s refined aesthetic. New colours available, such as the metallic Starlight Blue or Solaris Orange, also played a role in crowning the MINI one of the most stunning and beautiful cars on the road today. MINI’s personalization is second-to-none and the 2018’s inclusion of Piano Black exterior options to surround the headlamps, grille, and taillights, is a subtle choice that speaks volumes to its stylish heritage.
