MINI Cooper S 5 Door

despite the size bump in the new MINI, a three-door body is not quite a crowd-pleaser, especially if you have a family to pull around town. with that in mind, MINI introduces you to the new five-door variant, simply known as MINI 5 Door. with the MINI 5 Door, overall length is increased by 161 mm to 3,982 mm (4,005 mm on Cooper S 5 Door and Cooper SD 5 Door), while the wheelbase sees a bump by 72 mm, thus affording more legroom for the three seats at the rear. it also has 15 mm more headroom and 61 mm more interior width, plus a larger 278 liters trunk. additionally, you will still get the 60:40 split fold seat that could temporary increase your cargo hold if required.

apart from the obvious difference in body style, the MINI 5 Door is still a MINI that you have come to love with signature styling cues including the hexagonal radiator grille, wide chrome surround on headlamps and taillights, black body element bordering the vehicle – just to name a few. basically, what you have here is the fun of the MINI plus the practicality of a 5-door body that allows your rear passengers easy ingress and egress, which also means no more getting out of the front seat in order to let the passengers into or out of the rear seats. sounds like awesome, if you ask us. at market launch, the MINI 5 Door will be available in four models: two petrol and two diesel engines of the new generation available with MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology.

the petrol variant will come as a 136 hp three-cylinder with 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque and a 192 hp four-cylinder (with peak torque of 280 Nm or 206 lb-ft) available to the MINI Cooper 5 and MINI Cooper S 5, respectively. and then there is the 116 hp three-cylinder diesel engine MINI Cooper D 5 (270 Nm or 199 lb-ft) and a new four-cylinder MINI Cooper SD 5 offering an impressive 170 hp with 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque. regardless of the model you choose, six-speed stick shifter comes as standard, though a 6-speed Steptronic or Steptronic sports transmission is available as an option. performance-wise, the petrol S model is tad ‘slower’ at 6.8 seconds (6.7 seconds in automatic) when making the century sprint and top speed is limited to 232 km/h (144 mph).

MINI assures that the new 5 will still have the much lauded go-kart feel, thanks to the model-specific suspension setup which includes a whole bunch electronic and mechanical aids that promised to make driving a MINI 5 as enjoyment as the three-door counterpart. the new model will ride on 15-inch and 16-inch light alloy wheels for the non ‘S’ Cooper and the ‘S’ variant, respectively, though 18-inch is also available upon request. other details include a weight- and crash-optimized body structure, a slew of airbags, 3-point automatic seatbelts, tire pressure control, instrument cluster on steering column, MINI head-up display, parking assistance, rear view camera, MINI Connected in-car infotainment and more. details of availability and pricing are yet to be announced, but reassure the MINI 5 Door is coming your way and our guts tell us that it will be this year.
