The New Mini Model With 5 Doors
|   Saturday, June 14, 2014
The Mini hatchback now has a second version which is also the first five-door model in the history of the iconic Oxford brand. The English call it simply Mini Cooper 5, and the bodywork version marks the first entry of the manufacturer owned by the BMW Group in this segment.

Based on the third generation hatchback, the model has a long wheelbase, a bigger boot and offers three seats in the back. Somehow, we are talking about that practical MINI, which many customers were wanting.
Initially, it was manifested in the form of the Clubman, then the Countryman SUV. With this launch, the Mini range promises to fulfill the wishes of a clientele which was not addressed until now.

The standard version of the five-door Mini Cooper has a length of 3,982 mm, a width of 1,727 mm and a height of 1,425 millimeters. Its wheelbase is 2,567 mm. In the case of the Cooper S and Cooper SD, the car is slightly longer with the bodyworks totaling 4,005 millimeters long. Regardless of engine, all stylistic elements launched by the third generation of the hatchback have been passed on, the height increased by 11 mm, while the width is unchanged, and the length increased by 161 mm.

The thrusters of the five-door hatchback offer from 116 hp to 192 hp and comply with Euro 6 standards. The range has two petrol engines, an in-line three-cylinder with TwinPower Turbo technology from BMW rated at 136 hp, and another 2 liter unit with 192 hp, which will appear on the Cooper S. The offer on diesel engines likewise has also two units, one in-line three cylinder unit with 116 hp, and a 2.0-liter unit with 170 hp for the Cooper SD version.

The latter is a new diesel engine in the Mini range, offered with a six-speed automatic transmission Steptronic/Steptronic Sport, as well as with a six-speed manual transmission - the latter being the standard, like the automatic Start-Stop system and MINIMALISM technology to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. All technical and technological elements of the hatchback are present without exception on the five-door version.

This means that the five-door model benefits from the new driving modes introduced with the third-generation Mini hatchback. Switching between MID, SPORT, and GREEN modes is done using a rotary switch at the base of the gear selector and affects how the car responds to acceleration, direction and ambient lighting.

The Dynamic Damper Control system is offered with the Cooper S performance version. The system offers a choice between a comfort choice and a sporty driving, this being turned into reality by controlling compression and return of the shock absorbers with the help of electronic valves drainage (EDC).

The release of the five-door version marks an important milestone for Mini, the model offering for the first time five places on board and a bigger boot, which totals 278 liters. Compared with the three-door variant, we have about 67 liters more in the trunk, 15 mm extra for rear passengers' heads, and 61 millimeters in elbow width. When the rear seats are folded, cargo space volume goes up to 941 liters.
