THE URBAN PIONEER.
Behind every great car is a great engine. Giving the MINI Cooper its strength is the all-new 1.5l 3-cylinder MINI Twin Power Turbo engine. Low in emission, but high in output it produces 136hp that give the light MINI Cooper its trademark go-kart feeling.
More charismatic and distinguished than ever, the new MINI Cooper turns heads with every corner turned. Matt silver and black touches contrast with any of the available body colours. Top it off with a black or white roof and rack up some jealous looks.
Scoring high on functionality and aesthetics alike, the interior of the new MINI Cooper is every driver’s dream. Slide into the comfortable dark upholstery seats and feast your eyes on the revamped dashboard. All driving-related displays such as the speedometer and rev counter are placed behind the steering wheel, directly into your field of vision. The traditional MINI centre speedo has been replaced by the all-new MINI Centre Instrument that displays information and entertainment. With comfortable full-fledged seats in the back, being a passenger in the new MINI is no punishment either.
Lighting the way for the new MINI are newly designed headlights and rear lights. New graphics and a new insert play a big role in giving the new MINI its more mature look. Fitted with full-LED lights for our local models, the new MINI is set to pierce the darkness even further.
The front lights are housed in their iconic chrome ring and feature inserts with a single large elliptical element. The turn signal is subtly integrated in the lower third of the daylight driving ring. All style and harmony, day and night.
In the back, the lights have become larger, claiming a more prominent position. Drawn into the hatch and surrounded by a chrome frame, the tail lights have been redesigned to a rounded off rectangle.
THE CLEVER DRIVING APPROACH.
The new MINI is stacked with the best safety technology money can buy. From active safety systems that significantly reduce the risk of something going wrong, to passive systems we hope you’ll never need, but are great to have in case you do.
DRIVING ASSIST SYSTEM.
We can all use a little help sometimes. The new MINI comes with a wide range of optional assist systems to give you a helping hand before you even know you need it. The City Collision Mitigation system helps prevent accidents at speeds under 60 km/h. Monitoring traffic ahead with a built-in camera, it gives off a warning signal and applies the brakes when things get too close for comfort. At higher speeds, the Forward Collision Warning system takes over. It preconditions the brakes for instant response, reducing stopping distance. To be on the even safer side, Speed Limit Info and Traffic Sign Memory recognise road signs and let you know when you’re exceeding the speed limit. After all, driving a MINI is about breaking conventions, not the law.
In the event of a crash, the MINI turns into a padded safety cell in a heartbeat. Based on the direction of the impact, the relevant airbags are deployed. There are six in total in the front and back. For side-impact protection and to protect you against flying glass, the new MINI comes with side curtain airbags. Knee airbags put up a lightning quick barrier between your legs and the dashboard. Last but not least, the seat belt tensioners lock you tightly in place, keeping you and your passengers clear from the dashboard and front seats.
No more blowouts or dangerous road-side emergency repairs. With the run-flat safety tyres you can keep on driving to a place where you can safely change the tyre in case of a puncture.
The optional Parking Assistant makes parallel parking a walk in the park – pun of course intended. It sizes up the available parking space to see if you could actually fit. If the answer is yes, then just sit back with a smug look on your face, as your MINI parks itself for you. All you need to do is apply the brakes when you're parked perfectly.
We care about the safety of those around you as much as we do about yours. The Active Pedestrian Protection System pulls the bonnet back and up in case the MINI hits a pedestrian, reducing the direct force of the impact. Optical fibre in the bumper registers the collision, after which a sophisticated system of actuators in the hinge system takes the appropriate action in a split second. Once activated the bonnet stays up, but you can still carefully drive to the nearest MINI service station.
With the optional Adaptive Dynamic Cruise Control you can kick back and go with the traffic flow, even when the roads are busy or when you’re traveling downhill. A camera detects vehicles driving in front of you up to a distance of 120m. It also recognizes static objects and even pedestrians. The system automatically adapts your speed to that of the traffic in front of you. Feel free to take back control at any time by applying the brakes or stepping on the accelerator.
High- and super-high-strength multi-phase steels. Super-high-strength heat shaped steels. If that doesn’t sound like something that could protect you, we don’t know what does. Reducing weight to a minimum, but increasing strength to a maximum these heavy-duty materials are designed for one purpose only: keeping you safe in the event of an accident.
