Classic MINI the characteristic three-way separation of corpus, all-round greenhouse and together with a new take on design features define the of the new model, which has grown by ten centimetres in length. Its interior extended spatial comfort on all seats as well as a luggage volume expanded by 51 litres to a of 211 litres.

A new display and operating combines the typical brand-style and feel of the cockpit with functionality. Road speed and speed along with key driving-related information is shown in the designed instrument cluster on the column. The characteristic central with an optional colour of up to 8.8 inches in size provides on operations performed using the Controller in the centre console as as giving visual feedback on condition and on numerous functions by the driver.

The new MINI Driving allow an individual set-up not just the characteristic curve of the and steering but also engine and in the MINI Cooper S — the relevant features are fitted ambient lighting, the shift of the automatic transmission and the characteristics of Damper Control, the latter being optionally available for the time. The modes SPORT and can be activated in addition to the standard MID In conjunction with an automatic the efficiency-oriented GREEN mode features a coasting function decoupled drivetrain.

The range of driver assistance systems has significantly expanded. For the first there is an extendible Head-Up above the steering column for the new MINI, a Driving Assistant including camera-based active control, collision and pedestrian high beam assistant and sign detection, and also a assistant and a rear view

Unique within the competitive the MINI in-car infotainment likewise moves into a new dimension. As the first car in its segment the new can be fitted with a SIM card is permanently installed in the car. means that Emergency with automatic detection of location and accident severity is as well as MINI Teleservices.

which can be integrated in the vehicle via in the areas of social networks and are now available for both the Apple and for smartphones using the operating Android.

Exterior design: proportions, striking lines, highlights.

The new MINI sets out to the global success story of the ever premium automobile in the car segment. At the same time it forward the tradition of the classic that stretches back more than 50 years. Its reflects these historical as well as an evolutionary refinement of the vehicle concept.

The hallmark proportions have been thanks to precisely defined of the exterior dimensions. These help give the new MINI a and powerful appearance which its agile character, geared towards inspiring driving

The body of the new MINI is 3 821 millimetres (MINI Cooper S: 3 850 millimetres), 1 727 wide and 1 414 millimetres wide. makes it 98 millimetres longer, 44 wider and 7 millimetres higher its predecessor. The wheelbase has been by 28 millimetres to 2 495 millimetres, while the width has been enlarged at the by 42 millimetres and at the rear by 34 millimetres to a of 1 501 millimetres in each case Cooper S: 1 485 millimetres). Cornering and ride comfort benefit these new dimensions as do the amount of available to occupants and the luggage volume.

The extended adjustment range of the seats, a seat surface by 23 millimetres and a perceptible increase in room provide more space and freedom of movement as as optimised entry comfort for passengers. Luggage compartment has been increased by 51 litres to 211

Like its proportions, the car’s brand styling and the three-way of body structure that is so of MINI both contribute to its appearance. The corpus, greenhouse and on top are clearly separated from one in visual terms. The glass with the dark body forms a harmonious cover across the entire automobile.

the side view, the window tapering off to the rear creates a wedge shape which is of the forward thrust characterising the new

The wide track and short emphasise the vehicle’s corpus strikingly than ever as it sits powerfully on top of the wheels. The stature of the new MINI is additionally by the visual link between the and rear wheel arches. is created by means of a striking line along with a line running above and parallel to it in the side view.

The two feature a dynamic downward at both front and rear, directing attention to the two large arches.

Traditional design such as the hexagonal contour of the grille, the side indicator known as side scuttles, the headlights, the upright rear clusters and the black periphery the bottom edge of the body are Selected design features are a particularly high-end emphasis by of a novel surface design in specific environment. The contours of the rear light clusters and arches are highlighted by means of edging.

The visual effect of the scuttle elements and the additional in the front apron is enhanced by of striking lines on the adjacent in each case.

The MINI S draws its model-specific sporty from such features as a grille with honeycomb an additional opening in the bonnet, air ducts integrated in the lower air and a separate rear apron exhaust tailpipes arranged at the In addition to the side scuttle the radiator grille of this variant now also bears an S with chrome surround.

in the segment: LED headlamps and adaptive distribution.

Detailed design has been applied to both the circular headlamps, featuring a chrome ring surround, and the circular additional headlamps in the front apron. The light of the headlamps are clearly structured, the arched turn indicators in the lower section. In the standard the daytime driving light and the light is produced inside the headlights, while fog lamps can be included here as an optional

The new MINI is the first car in its segment to the option of LED headlamps. The bright LED units provide the light for both low and high beam. are also surrounded by an LED daylight ring, the lower section of reaches down to the white indicators. Another option is an light distribution function ensures optimum illumination of the surface and roadside — on situation and route profile and also includes a turning The optional fog lamps are likewise in halogen or LED, according to

In conjunction with the LED headlamps, the light clusters also as LED units.

For the market launch of the new the selection of exterior body has been extended to include new colours. The roof and exterior caps can be finished in a contrasting — white or black as an option and at no extra cost. rails are also available for the new for the first time.

Other of adding a touch of individual include white or black stripes and Chrome Line for the

Interior design: hallmark style, new display and operating

Precise lines, high-end and material combinations and modern highlight the orientation of the new MINI driving fun and a premium interior The horizontal structure of the cockpit and the or elliptical contours of key features as air outlets, instruments and door elements are classic design which take on a more and especially high-quality form in the new A new display and operating concept the ideal basis for safe, and convenient control of the driver infotainment and comfort systems, have been significantly in terms of the functions available.

One of the most important new features is the cluster on the steering column. speed, engine speed and level are displayed on vertically circular instruments. The speedometer includes a colour panel for Control messages, vehicle displays and visual indicators to driver assistance systems activated.

Key insertion as previously is no longer necessary in the cockpit of the new As soon as the key is inside the car, the of the new MINI can be started by pressing the start/stop button located in the of the centre console, which up red. Above the toggle there are three circular switches for heating and air conditioning. The switches for the headlamps and fog lamps also been repositioned and are now on the instrument cluster next to the wheel.

The electrically controlled window lifts in the new MINI are in the door trim panels.

instrument with new functions and lighting configuration.

With its new elements and extended functionality, the MINI central instrument interaction between driver and Depending on the car’s fittings, the of its interior surface serves as a TFT display or else a colour up to 8.8 inches in size which operating feedback for vehicle air conditioning, infotainment and communication, maps and route directions as as the special graphics for MINI Services. The selection and control of functions is facilitated by a new controller in the console which comes in with the Radio MINI Boost or the MINI navigation

Rotary, pressure and shift as well as one-touch and bookmark allow for intuitive, safe and operation based on the principles of the BMW system — a ground-breaking throughout the entire automotive

The innovative display and operating is supported by a lighting design in the of the central instrument which is to MINI. LED units around the edge of the circular instrument optionally available in six colours can respond to the current situation on the and to specific operating steps, to driver preference. For example, the movements of the road speed and speed display in the instrument are underpinned by parallel light at the edge of the central instrument. Park Distance Control is the remaining distance to obstacles is by means of a ring of light is illuminated in green, yellow or red supplementing the graphic display. A in the desired interior temperature is by LED units which light up in or red.

Route guidance provided by the navigation system is visually supported by the illuminated the closer the car gets to the turn-off the smaller the lit-up area at the of the central instrument.

Typical diversity of colours and materials for individual flair.

Increased space and a wide range of details make for further in the area of functionality. The rear with a 60. 40 split is not only its tilt angle can be adjusted Numerous cupholders and storage make it easy to take and travel utensils along in the and there is an additional storage behind the decorative strip on the side.

A storage package is optionally available that a double load compartment additional lashing eyes and for the luggage compartment, along map pouches for the backrests of the front

Seats in a fabric/leather combination and finish are offered as an alternative to the fabric version. The MINI S is fitted with sports as standard: these are available as extras for all other variants. A selection of upholstery colours, surfaces, Colour Lines and design features — Chrome Line for the interior and the package with LED interior and orange-coloured ambient lighting offers a wide range of for interior customisation.

New engines MINI TwinPower Turbo

The launch of the new MINI sees a of generation in the area of engines. For the time both 3-cylinder and engines are used, all featuring TwinPower Turbo Technology. In the engines of the new MINI Cooper S and the new Cooper this includes direct fuel injection, camshaft control on the intake and side (double VANOS) and valve control in the form of as patented by the BMW Group. The diesel of the new MINI Cooper D has a turbocharging with variable turbine and the latest generation of common direct injection with injection pressure increased to 2 000 bar for fuel metering and clean

The result: a further boost to fun along with increased and adherence to the EU6 exhaust emission All model variants of the new MINI improved engine and driving figures while their consumption and emission levels been reduced as compared to the models by as much as 27 per cent.

For spirited power delivery, the new Cooper S is powered by a 2.0-litre engine with a peak of 141 kW/192 bhp which goes on between 4 700 and 6 000 rpm, delivering its torque of 280 Newton metres at 1 250 Torque can even briefly be to 300 Newton metres by means of an function. As a result, acceleration zero to 100 km/h takes 6.8 seconds (automatic: (6.7 while the top speed is 235 km/h km/h).

The average fuel of the new MINI Cooper S is 5.7 to 5.8 litres to 5.4 litres) per 100 kilometres, while its of CO2 emissions 133 to 136 grams per kilometre to 125 g/km; EU test cycle dependent on tyre format

With output increased by 10 bhp to 100 kW/136 bhp between 4 500 and 6 000 rpm and a maximum of 220 Newton metres (230 Nm overboost), now available at 1 250 rpm, the 3-cylinder petrol engine in the new Cooper also enables sportier driving performance the predecessor power unit. The new Cooper sprints in 7.9 seconds 7.8 seconds) from standing to 100 while its top speed is 210 km/h in case. These figures are with an average fuel which has been reduced to 4.5 and 4.6 litres (4.7 to 4.8 litres) per 100 and a CO2 emissions level of 105 to 107 grams per (109 to 112 g/km; EU test figures, dependent on tyre selected).

The new MINI Cooper D lines up for the start with power and a reduced level of consumption as compared to its predecessor. It has a diesel engine which its peak output of 85 kW/116 bhp at 4 000 The maximum torque of 270 Newton goes on stream at 1 750 rpm, acceleration from zero to 100 in 9.2 seconds with both and automatic transmission. The top speed is 205 km/h. The new MINI Cooper D achieves a new optimum in terms of consumption, with an average of 3.5 to 3.6 (3.7 to 3.8 litres) per 100 kilometres.

Its of CO2 emissions is 92 to 95 grams per kilometre (98 to 99 EU test cycle figures, on tyre format selected).

New and automatic transmission with efficiency.

The manual and automatic also newly developed, an additional contribution to improved The new MINI is fitted as standard a 6-speed manual transmission differs from the predecessor in its reduced weight and improved comfort deriving from the use of friction linings for the synchroniser A centrifugal pendulum in the dual-mass compensates for torsional vibrations, enhancing the acoustic and vibrational of the drive system when at low engine speeds for greater efficiency.

A new gear sensor enables active engine adaptation for especially sporty when accelerating and increased when shifting down.

The automatic transmission available for all of the new MINI offers improved enhanced shift comfort and shift dynamics. These have been achieved by of such elements as a more transmission control system, a direct connection and optimised The new MINI also combines transmission with the automatic start/stop function for the first preventing unnecessary fuel caused by idling at junctions or in traffic.

An additional option is the sports automatic transmission enables even shorter times and can be operated in manual using shift paddles at the wheel.

In conjunction with the navigation system, the automatic is also able to take of the route profile in controlling shifts. Based on navigation the appropriate drive position is to match the imminent situation on the e.g. directly prior to or on corners. This prevents upshifts between two bends in succession, for example.

The MINIMALISM which comes as standard not only the automatic engine function and extensive measures to weight and aerodynamic drag in the new but also a shift point function for automobiles with transmission, brake energy and needs-oriented control of the fuel coolant pump and other units. The electromechanical power is equally as energy-efficiency as the map-controlled oil in all engines. An optimised preheating reduces the energy required to the diesel engine by around 50 per

Depending on the model variant, a optimisation of aerodynamic properties is by such measures as active air flaps, extensive underbody and air ducting elements in the upper of the C columns. With a drag (Cd value) of 0.28 (MINI MINI Cooper D), the new MINI is the leader in terms of aerodynamics,

MINI Driving Modes: flair and efficiency and turn of a

The new MINI Driving Modes provides an excellent basis for efficient motoring. A rotary at the base of the gear or selector is used to activate either the MID mode, the SPORT or the GREEN In addition to the characteristic curve of the and steering and engine acoustics, the Driving Modes also the ambient lighting, the shift of the automatic transmission and the Dynamic Control configuration in the MINI S — in so far as these features are

The choice is between a set-up is either very sporty, and well-balanced or else geared fuel efficiency.

In GREEN — supporting a relaxed and fuel-efficient driving style the energy used by electrically comfort functions such as air and exterior mirror heating is In cars fitted with transmission it is also possible to use the function. The drivetrain is decoupled at of between 50 and 160 km/h as soon as the removes their foot the accelerator pedal.

The new MINI rolls at idling engine at a minimum rate of minimal consumption.

Optimised suspension less weight, more feeling.

The refinement of suspension in the new MINI keeps to the well-established principle of the single-joint spring axle at front along a multilink rear axle is unique within the competitive as well as featuring extensive of all components in terms of material and geometry. All improvements are aimed at the experience of the agile MINI properties, commonly known as the feeling. The set-up of the wheel body mounting, vehicle damping, steering and brakes account of the increased level of power and the typical MINI consisting of front-wheel drive, mounted engine at the front, low of gravity, short overhangs, track and rigid, weight-optimised structure.

In order to reduce and increase component rigidity, the new axle is fitted with swivel bearings as well as supports and wishbones made of steel. The modified front kinematics supports the agile response and precise steering of the new MINI. The share of high-strength used in the rear axle has been increased.

Tube-shaped at the front and rear axle contribute to weight reduction. is also an innovative axle which benefits both comfort and agility.

Premiere for Damper Control in the new MINI.

The configured suspension and damping have been reduced in The dampers are decoupled at the front and axle by means of triple-path bearings. Another new addition to the equipment program is Dynamic Control.

Two characteristic lines are for damper set-up, allowing of either a more comfort-oriented or a direct, sporty response to bumps, depending on the given The compression and rebound stage are by means of electrical control of the EDC

The electromechanical power steering has been subjected to extensive development. So-called torque compensation prevents self-steering caused by differing degrees of at the drive wheels. Steering has also been optimised for avoidance swerves and when bends in very sporty

Standard features also the speed-related steering assistance Servotronic.

In addition to the anti-lock ABS, electronic brake distribution EBD, Cornering Control (CBC) and the brake the driving stability control DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) in the new also includes a drive-off a brake dry function, Fading Support and DTC mode (Dynamic Control), which permits slip at the drive wheels so as to driving off on loose sand or snow. When the driving system is deactivated (DSC Off there is an electronic locking for the front axle differential selectively and appropriately brakes a drive wheel on tight redirecting the drive torque to the wheel. This system, as Electronic Differential Lock (EDLC), thereby promotes the forward momentum without influencing self-steering response.

The new MINI Cooper S also the Performance Control system, counteracts any tendency to understeer to reaching the threshold level so as to an agile yet neutral driving on bends.

The 15-inch forged alloy wheels of the new MINI and the new MINI Cooper D have a low weight as well as favourable properties. The new MINI Cooper S is with 16-inch light wheels as standard. Other alloy wheels up to a size of 18 are available as part of the program of and accessories.

Less weight, safety and greater agility due to lightweight construction.

Further in the body area was focused on structure, which impacts on both the driving properties and the response of the new MINI. Intelligent construction means that reduction in the new MINI is combined an increase in rigidity, thereby both agility and occupant In spite of its extended range of virtually all variants of the new MINI are than their respective models.

They also less than their in the segment.

Highly resilient structures, deformation zones in design and an extremely stable cell provide an excellent for keeping impact energy from passengers and ensuring occupant protection. The safety of the new MINI is geared towards maximum scores on all the relevant tests worldwide.

Comprehensive technology including pedestrian

The standard safety fittings of the new comprise front and side as well as curtain airbags for the and rear seats. All seats are with 3-point seat with belt tensioners and force limiters at the front and child seat mountings at the rear.

There are also absorbers, precisely defined elements and a partially active all of which are elements that the risk of injury to pedestrians. In the of a collision with a pedestrian, is registered by special sensors, a trigger mechanism raises the compartment lid. This additional deformation space and reduces the risk of injury impacting against very parts of the engine.

Innovative assistance systems increase and safety.

Further evidence of the progress ushered in with the new of the MINI is to be found in the program of assistance systems — for the first time in a model of the brand. New features include the Head-Up-Display which shows relevant to the driver on an extendible in the upper section of the dashboard the windscreen and steering wheel. The Head-Up Display promotes on the road by displaying information in the driver’s line of sight. It can be read quickly and conveniently averting one’s eyes the road. The information that can be in the MINI Head-Up Display speed in figures, navigation in the form of arrow graphics and sketches, visual signals for warning, display symbols by Speed Limit Info and No Info, Check Control and entertainment program details as radio channels and track

The graphics on the high-resolution screen are visible in all light conditions.

innovations in the area of driver systems for the new MINI include the Assistant option. This a camera-based cruise control and control function which maintains a distance from the ahead, and the collision and pedestrian system with initial function. In critical situations, the is first provided with a signal in the form of a graphic that appears in the instrument this is supplemented at the second level by an acoustic signal the driver to react. In addition to an automatic brake manoeuvre is in the case of an imminent collision a pedestrian or if there is a risk of a collision in urban traffic. the new MINI is decelerated at medium force.

Depending on the situation, can either prevent an impact altogether or else significantly the severity of the accident. As the automatic is activated, the driver is also an unmistakable prompt to intervene.
