The new Mini Cooper S in Classic Trim

Explore the features and allure of the new Mini Cooper S in Classic Trim.

The new Mini Cooper S paired with a four-cylinder engine combines puristic design with the brand-typical go-kart feeling. Clean body surfaces and compact proportions accentuate the modern aesthetics of the exterior while the interior is characterised by high-quality equipment details.

Built for driving fun

The fifth generation of the Mini Cooper will be offered with a broad drivetrain portfolio of purely electric engines, as well as efficient petrol engines. The 2.0 litre four-cylinder TwinPower offers 150kW and 300Nm allowing this model to complete the 0-100km/h sprint in 6.6 seconds.

In addition, suspension and damping have been tailored for agile handling. With compact exterior dimensions, the classic three-door model from Mini stands for maximum driving fun. Its increased track width optimises driving dynamics in demanding situations. 

Jam packed with the latest technology

Numerous driver assistance systems increase safety and comfort including Safe Exit which monitors the area around the parked vehicle and warns of approaching road users before the door is opened. During stop & go traffic, Active Cruise Control relieves the driver by automatically keeping the distance from the vehicle in front and continuously monitoring the road. The standard parking assistant automatically recognises parking spaces and takes over the automatic parking at the push of a button. While driving, the brand’s first fully-fledged voice assistant helps the driver operate the Mini Interaction Unit.

Classic trim with expressive details

There are four vehicle trims to choose from for the Mini Cooper S. With Classic Trim, additional body colours and contrasting roof finishes are available. The elegant Ocean Wave Green colour accentuates the minimalist design of the iconic Mini three-door model while the contrasting roof and mirror caps increase its presence.

Tight overhangs and a short bonnet contrast with the wheelbase and give the vehicle typical Mini proportions. The wheel portfolio includes various designs from 16 to 18 inches in size.

With Classic Trim, the cockpit is characterised by black-blue surfaces made of two-tone knitted material. High-quality Vescin seats in grey or black form a striking contrast. The perforated houndstooth pattern on the backrest and seat as well as blue accent stitching and patterned fabric inserts on the side accentuate the stylish design of the interior.
