Measuring 4,036 mm in length, 1,744 mm in width, and 1,464 mm in height, the MINI Cooper 5 Door maintains compact dimensions similar to its predecessor. The interior comfortably accommodates five passengers, benefiting from a 72 mm longer wheelbase and a 172 mm longer body than the 3-door variant. These enhancements translate to greater comfort and space for occupants. Short overhangs, clear surfaces, and distinctive accents give the new MINI Cooper 5 Door unmistakable charisma.

The MINI Cooper 5 Door delivers the brand’s hallmark driving fun with agile handling. It offers two efficient petrol engines: a three-cylinder engine with 115 kW/156 hp for the MINI Cooper 5 Door C, and a four-cylinder engine with 150 kW/204 hp for the MINI Cooper 5 Door S. Both engines provide the go-kart feeling MINI is known for, coupled with precise steering and powerful brakes. Compact dimensions and a small turning circle of 11.4 meters make it ideal for urban driving.

Inside, the MINI Cooper 5 Door boasts digital innovations and an immersive user experience. The interior combines new elements with references to MINI’s history, featuring a minimalist design reminiscent of the classic Mini. A high-resolution OLED display in the dashboard’s centre offers intuitive control via touch or voice, powered by the MINI Operating System 9. The system supports various functions, including navigation, media, and phone controls.

It is available in eleven body colours with four exterior trims, including the sporty JCW Trim. The rear seats fold in a 60:40 split, expanding the luggage compartment from 275 litres to up to 925 litres. Lending a modern look, its MINI aesthetic continues at the rear with clear surfaces and flush-fitting taillights.

The new MINI features advanced driver assistance systems, such as the Parking Assistant Plus and MINI Digital Key Plus, allowing for smartphone keyless entry. The high-quality materials and minimalist design create a feel-good atmosphere inside, with innovative textile surfaces and a panoramic glass roof enhancing the bright, spacious cabin.

The new MINI Cooper 5 Door merges charismatic design with functionality, making it a versatile and stylish choice for urban driving. Its combination of traditional values and modern technology sets a new standard for the brand, offering an exceptional driving experience.
