16th October, 2014

  • First Mini Cooper 5-door has space for five occupants
  • Choice of 1.5-litre TwinPower Turbo petrol and diesel engines and 2.0-litre TwinPower Turbo petrol in Cooper S
  • Mini Cooper 5-door on sale from 1st November

Mini has announced pricing for its first ever 5-door Cooper with the entry level Mini Cooper 5-door priced from $27,750*.

The all-new second body variant of the third-generation Mini is also offered as a diesel-powered Cooper D, priced from $32,900*, as well as a top-of-the-range sporty Cooper S that starts at $38,050*.

Mini Australia general manager, Kai Bruesewitz, said the longer and taller 5-door Mini Cooper provided customers with more interior space and flexibility with no compromises on Miniís distinctive style or driving mannerism.

With an overall length of 3,982mm (Cooper S: 4,005mm), width of 1,727mm and height of 1,425mm, the Mini five-door is 161mm longer and 11mm taller than the new Mini 3-door (launched in April) but maintains that carís compact and visual aspects.

The front end with its trademark circular headlights; a dynamic profile provided by a rising sill line and short front and rear overhangs; and tapered rear window with an integrated hatch-top spoiler all combine to ensure the Mini Cooper 5-door maintains a distinctive appearance.

Along with the longer body, the new Mini Coper 5-door sits on a 2,567mm wheelbase that has been extended by 72mm compared to the 3-door Mini providing a substantial increase in interior space, particularly in the rear where the 60/40-split bench seat will now seat three passengers.

The higher roof height has added 15mm headroom, the increased length provides 72mm more rear foot and legroom and although the overall width of the car is the same as the Mini 3-door Hatch, the design has provided passengers with 61mm more interior width at elbow height.

Like the exterior, the interior design remains faithful to Miniís aesthetic with its circular motif, contemporary colours and trim materials and three-spoke sports leather multi-function steering wheel.

In addition to the extra passenger space, the larger interior of the Mini Cooper 5-door also provides more luggage capacity with greater flexibility in the seating options. With the rear seat back in place, the boot provides a capacity of 278 litres that can be further expanded to 941 litres with the 60/40-split rear seat back folded flat.

The rear seat back can also be placed in a 90-degree position to increase luggage space while the storage package provides a two-part load compartment floor that can be locked in various positions for improved versatility.

Mini 5-door is reasonably well equipped with the entry-level Mini Cooper featuring air conditioning, dynamic cruise control, electric windows and mirrors, automatic windscreen wipers and lights, audio system with USB and Auxiliary inputs, Bluetooth connectivity, interior LED ambient lights package and rear fog lights.

A step up into the mid-range Mini Cooper D adds automatic dual-zone climate control, Radio Mini Visual Boost with a 6.5-inch central display screen, Extended Bluetooth with music streaming, front fog lights and a front armest, while the top of the range Mini Cooper S also gains leather/cloth combination upholstery, front sports seats and Mini Navigation System. Along with the upgraded display screen, the Cooper D and Cooper S also feature the Mini Controller Ė based on BMWís iDrive system Ė to manage infotainment, vehicle, communication and where fitted, navigation functions.

All Mini 5-door models feature a high level of standard safety equipment including six airbags, Dynamic Stability Control, Dynamic Traction Control with Electronic Differential Lock Control, ABS with Brake Assist, Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Cornering Brake Control, and rear Park Distance Control.

It has a 3.8l/100km fuel consumption rating on the combined cycle test when matched to the manual gearbox.
