This edition of MINI’s first five-seater features fresh design accents, a unique Multitone Roof, creative use of space, functionality, and a high-grade refined interior.
The car’s wheelbase is 72 mm longer than that of the MINI 3 door, its body length is increased by 160 mm.
There are 3 rear seats. Passengers in the second row benefit from additional doors and noticeably more interior width, leg- and headroom.
The cargo space can be enlarged by folding down a 60: 40 split rear seat backrests from 278 to up to 941 litres.
LED head- and rear lights are now standard; vertical air intakes replace the fog lights whose function is now fulfilled by a bad weather light. The latter is part of an adaptive LED headlights option.
The front bumper is body-coloured now. The Piano Black exterior paint and the Multitone Roof (a combination of San Marino Blue, Pearly Aqua and Jet Black) are optional.
The Multitone Roof comes with almost all exterior colours available, including a new Rooftop Grey metallic.
Inside the car, expect to see the generous amount of space, new comfort features (like illumination and lights), a new design of the central instrument cluster, an advanced cockpit. The centre air vents are flush with the interior surfaces.
An 8.8-inch touchscreen and a redesigned sports leather steering wheel are now standard. Steering wheel heating and the multifunctional instrument display come as options.
“Lounge” and “Sport” modes with its own colour scheme are available. The settings for the displays match to the MINI Driving Modes and the new Ambient Light option. A particularly atmospheric ambience can be created in the MINI 5 door.
More than 500 000 five-door MINIs have already been sold worldwide. Market launch of the new edition starts next month.
