The New Mini Cooper 5 Door: Enhanced Functionality and Performance

The latest Mini Cooper 5 Door model has been unveiled, continuing the brand’s tradition of compact dimensions paired with enhanced functionality and performance.

Dimensions and Space

  • Length: 4,036 mm
  • Width: 1,744 mm
  • Height: 1,464 mm

While these dimensions closely match its predecessor, the new model offers more interior space, accommodating up to five passengers. This is achieved through a wheelbase that is 72 mm longer and a body that is 172 mm longer compared to the 3 Door version, enhancing both comfort and space for occupants.

Design and Exterior

The new 5 Door maintains its signature design with:

  • Short Overhangs
  • Clear Surfaces
  • Expressive Accents

These features give the hatchback a distinctive charisma, both externally and within the cabin.

Engine Options

The Mini Cooper 5 Door is available with two petrol engine options:

  1. Three-Cylinder Engine in the Cooper 5 Door C: 115 kW
  2. Four-Cylinder Engine in the Cooper 5 Door S: 150 kW

These engines, combined with a modern chassis and precise steering, provide the classic Mini go-kart feeling. The compact dimensions, short overhangs, and a small turning circle of 11.4 meters make it ideal for urban driving.

Interior and Technology

The interior of the new Mini Cooper 5 Door is designed to be minimalist yet immersive, featuring:

  • 12.9-Inch OLED Central Display
  • Mini Operating System 9: Allows intuitive control of all vehicle functions via touch or voice.
  • High-Quality Materials: Knitted recycled polyester contributes to a feel-good atmosphere.
  • Mini Intelligent Personal Assistant: Enhances the user experience through the central OLED display.

Customisation Options

The Mini Cooper 5 Door offers a range of customisation options:

  • Eleven Body Colours
  • Three Contrasting Roof Options, including a multi-tone roof with a gradual colour gradient.
  • Three Trims: Classic, Favoured, and JCW, each offering various equipment and personalisation options.

Pricing and Availability

Continuing its appeal to urban dwellers, the 3-door Cooper S hatchback is priced at R610,884. Although Mini hasn’t confirmed the exact pricing for the 5 Door model or its availability in South Africa, it is likely to be priced around the same figure.
