New Car: 2015 Mini Cooper

The new MINI 2014 has been revealed. One of the most iconic cars in the world, the MINI has a new look and is the most revolutionary yet. There’s a new design, a radical range of three and four-cylinder engines, more hi-tech kit than ever before and a production site that’s still firmly rooted in Oxford.

Boss of Mini, Peter Schwarzenbauer, announced the arrival of the new car, which goes into production here later this week. Cooper D, Cooper and Cooper S models will go on sale first.

The new model promises improved safety with head up display, plus variable damper control for the first time. The MINI also debuts BMW’s new front-wheel-drive platform architecture – called UKL1 – which will underpin a total of 10 MINI and BMW models.

The new MINI has a March 2014 release date and a starting price of £15,300, but first up, and arguably the most important part of any new MINI, is the styling, which can be seen in our exclusive pictures, shot in a studio ahead of the official unveiling.

The rounded headlights, tiny overhangs and compact proportions are all trademark MINI. But you’ll notice that there’s a new semi-circle of LED daytime running lights in the headlamps – which can be upgraded to full LEDs as an option. Plus, the tail-lights are now far larger, like those found on the Countryman crossover.

We came to terms long ago with MINI not really meaning mini, and this latest has the biggest MINI dimensions yet. At 3,821mm long, it’s 98mm longer than the outgoing model, as well as being 44mm wider and 7mm taller.

Within those increases is a wheelbase extended by 28mm and a track widened by 42mm at the front and 34mm at the rear. The net effect is a car that is not only more spacious inside but should ride and handle better, too.

Proof of the MINI’s new focus on practicality comes with the news that boot space has increased from 160 litres to a more usable 211 litres. Plus, there’s an optional storage package, which includes a multi-level boot floor and rear seats that can be tilted to increase passenger or luggage space as required. For more details click here.
