New MINI Cooper 5 Door

A few months after the launch of the three-door, the five-door Cooper now joins the new MINI family. With extended space and innovative in-car technology, the new MINI Cooper 5 Door is offered with two efficient petrol engines that deliver hallmark MINI go-kart feeling.

At 4,036mm in length, 1,744mm in width and a height of 1,464 mm, the MINI Cooper 5 Door is almost identical in dimension to its predecessor. Its wheelbase is 72mm longer and 172mm longer than the MINI Cooper 3 Door, giving passengers increased comfort and space.

The new MINI Cooper 5 Door is available with a choice of two petrol engines with different designations of C and S. The MINI Cooper C offers a 115 kW/154 hp three-cylinder engine (consumption combined: 6.6 – 6.0 l/62 miles; CO2 emissions combined: 149 – 136 g/km according to WLTP) with 230 Nm (170 lb/ft) of torque, providing a top speed of 140mph and a 0-62mph time of 8.0 seconds.

The MINI Cooper S boasts a 150 kW/201 hp four-cylinder engine (consumption combined: 6.8 – 6.3 l/(62 miles; CO2 emissions combined: 153 – 141 g/km according to WLTP) with a maximum torque of 300 Nm (221 lb/ft), acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 150 mph.

Short overhangs, a small bonnet, a long wheelbase, and large wheels make the MINI Cooper 5 Door instantly recognisable. Combined with a three-part visual division of a clearly designed body, wraparound window area and steeped roof mark the iconic MINI design.

A minimalist front end with round headlights, octagonal front grille and LED headlights which are individually adjustable into three light signatures, complete the models front design. Clear surfaces, flush-fitting taillights, and a black handle strip with distinctive model lettering at the rear round off the vehicle design.

The interior of the new MINI Cooper 5 Door is focused on the circular infotainment screen, characteristic toggle switch and steering wheel. Behind the steering wheel is a slim head up display, ensuring all relevant content appears in the driver’s field of vision.

An innovative use of materials creates a versatile cabin using a specially developed knitting process to create an easy-care structure in a two-colour design of recycled polyester which extends across the curved dashboard and into the door panels.

The generous space in the front seats and the clean lines give the cockpit a modern look while the panoramic glass roof ensures a bright and open cabin with room for three passengers in the rear.

The new MINI Cooper 5 Door is priced from £24,050 OTR, with first customer deliveries commencing in August 2024.
