2014 Mini Cooper S
This is perhaps the best Cooper that Mini had created yet and we knew it’s true because Mini already launched the 3 door Cooper D and the 5 Door Cooper D in the Indian market. The new comes with lot of noteworthy changes and quite honestly it is the most practical Mini ever made. Based on the new UKL front wheel drive platform (which by the way is also shared with the BMW 1 series), the new hatchback perhaps in not exactly a “Mini car” anymore because it is taller, broader, and wider than the previous Mini, what was even more surprising was the fact they even considered a 5 door hatchback variant besides the other models which had practicality of a premium hatch.
We all know that Mini is available with different engine options and variants and the most powerful variants amongst them all is the Cooper S which was actually introduced way back in the year 1963 to the Mini lineup. The Cooper S variant of the Mini was created specifically for the competitive racing purposes and till now it has a reputation of a “hatch which handles like a Go-cart”.
Powered by a new twin turbo 4 cylinders 2.0 Litre petrol engine which is actually more powerful than the unit it replaces besides also being the biggest and the most powerful engine ever used under the hood of a Mini hatch. Interestingly! This new hatch surely can throw some punch when required; it has an impressive overall top speed of 230 km/h while also offering practicality which perhaps was the biggest concerns for many Mini customers earlier.
