The wait is over, Mini’s highly anticipated 5 door is finally here. The Mini 5 door is the first ever five door hatchback of its kind. The new Mini will be available on September while Australia can get their hands on this new machine by early 2015.
Here’s what we were able to dig about this dream car:
- At 3982mm long (Cooper S and SD variants: 4005mm), 1727mm wide, 1425mm tall and riding on a 2567mm wheelbase, the Mini 5 Door is 162mm longer and 11mm taller than the regular three-door Mini Cooper hatch, and is 72mm longer between the wheels.
- Mini claims the additional wheelbase length translates directly to a 72mm boost in rear legroom and foot space, while the five-door also offers 15mm more headroom and 61mm more interior width at elbow level.
- The boot, available with a variable luggage compartment floor, measures 278 litres – up 67L from the three-door – and expands to 941L with the 60:40 split rear seats folded forwards.
- Outputs are identical, with the Cooper producing 100kW and 220Nm, the Cooper D 85kW and 270Nm, the Cooper S 141kW and 280Nm, and the Cooper SD 125kW and 360Nm. The Cooper S is the quickest from 0-100km/h at 6.8 seconds, while the Cooper D, at 3.6 litres per 100km, is the most fuel efficient.
