Room for more: The 5-Door MINI Cooper enhances the refreshed MINI lineup

Just a few months after the launch of the new MINI Cooper 3-Door, the 5-Door MINI Cooper is joining the refreshed and updated MINI family.

Retaining the classic go-kart handling and undeniable MINI spirit of the MINI 5 Door Hatch, the new MINI Cooper 5-Door is due to hit the road in August 2024 with two efficient petrol engines. 

  • Space for 5 passengers
  • 275-litre boot
  • Priced from £24,050

See what all the fun is about

The MINI 5 Door Cooper combines the iconic go-kart handling you’ve got to know and love with additional space and cutting-edge technology. Take your pick from two energetic petrol engines – the MINI Cooper C and the MINI Cooper S – each promising a smile-inducing driving experience.

MINI 5 Door Cooper S

The MINI Cooper C isn’t your average three-cylinder engine. This little powerhouse packs a punch with 154 horsepower, propelling you from 0 to 62 mph in a swift 8.0 seconds. Don't be fooled by its size – this engine delivers exhilarating performance, reaching a top speed of 140 mph.

Craving more thrills? The second engine option, the MINI Cooper S, boasts a muscular 201 horsepower 4-cylinder engine. Buckle up and hold on tight as it rockets you from 0 to 62 mph in a rapid 6.8 seconds, all while achieving a top speed of 150 mph.

Extra space that doesn't sacrifice pace 

Thinking practicality means sacrificing performance? Think again! While larger than the MINI Cooper 3-Door, which manages 0-62 mph in 7.7 seconds with the Cooper C engine, and 6.6 seconds with the Cooper S engine, compared with the above stats, the MINI Cooper 5-Door gives up hardly any speed. So, you can still enjoy the exhilarating MINI drive you crave, even with a full crew on board.

Combine speed with excellent driving dynamics and you’ll have a comfortable ride no matter what. A sophisticated suspension and braking system, combined with a preloaded anti-roll bar, ensures precise steering and balanced handling while larger wheels further enhance ride comfort and agility.

New MINI Design

Instantly recognisable MINI features like the short overhangs, compact bonnet, extended wheelbase, and large wheels are all present on the new MINI Cooper 5-Door. The iconic design is accentuated by the signature three-part visual division: a sleek body, a wraparound glasshouse, and a bold roofline.

The minimalist front boasts round headlights, an octagonal grille, and customisable LED lighting options. The rear echoes the clean aesthetic with flush-fitting taillights and a unique model lettering accent.

MINI 5 Door Exterior
The new 5-Door Cooper comes in three distinct trims: Classic, Exclusive, and Sport. Each one lets you unleash your inner designer with a bunch of cool options for both the outside and inside.

Classic keeps things clean and simple. Think of it like a blank canvas – it highlights the iconic MINI elements, like the winged logo in a sharp Vibrant Silver. You get five different body colours to choose from, two contrasting roof options, and two-wheel styles to make your MINI truly yours.

Exclusive takes customisation to the next level. This trim adds British Racing Green and a brand-new Icy Sunshine Blue to the paint palette. Inside, it's all about luxury with a Vescin Nightshade Blue interior, a dark headliner, and a fancy Vibrant Silver grille. Exclusive models come standard with sharp 17" U Spoke Silver wheels, with the option to upgrade to one of two 18" designs.

Sport trim is all about the fun factor. The front and rear get a sporty makeover with a black hexagonal grille surround and logo, plus a rear spoiler with airblades for that aerodynamic edge. Standard 18" JCW Lap Spoke wheels in a two-tone finish scream performance, along with black brake callipers sporting the JCW badge. And if you want to add some real head-turner details, opt for the contrasting Chili Red roof and bold red/black bonnet stripes. 

Jump in, look around

As with the Cooper 3-Door model, the Cooper 5-Door focuses on the circular infotainment screen, signature toggle switch, and steering wheel. A sleek head-up display projects essential information like speed and navigation right onto the windshield, keeping your eyes firmly on the road ahead. 

The MINI Cooper 5-Door boasts an innovative knitted interior made from recycled polyester. This unique process creates a versatile and easy-to-clean cabin with a two-tone design that extends across the curved dashboard and flows seamlessly into the door panels.

Up front, the generous seating offers plenty of room for long drives, while clean lines throughout the cockpit create a modern feel. The expansive optional panoramic glass roof floods the interior with natural light, creating a bright and airy atmosphere for both driver and passengers. Plus, the rear seats comfortably accommodate three adults, making this MINI a perfect choice for friends and family adventures.

We’ve discussed how trim levels change the exterior, but how about the interior?

Classic trim offers a three-spoke steering wheel with a textile band at the six o'clock position, black/blue Vescin/cloth upholstery as standard across the seats, dashboard and door contrasts, or grey/blue Vescin/cloth optionally.

Exclusive trim offers sports seats in Vescin Nightshade Blue as standard or Beige optionally, while Sport trim offers a performance interpretation of the new material concept combining Vescin and Cord in dark night, with red accents also found on the dashboard and door trims. 

It's easy to own a MINI

The MINI Cooper 5-Door’s price starts at just £24,050, offering both practicality and driving fun at an attractive price point.

With spacious comfort, thrilling performance, and a truly customisable interior, the new MINI Cooper 5-Door is ready to take your driving experience to the next level.
