2025 Mini Cooper Unveils Sleek Design and Enhanced Gas Engine Performance

New American Mini Coopers now come standard with 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines for all base models.

Following the release of the electric Cooper E and SE variations in the previous year, Mini has at long last disclosed the gasoline versions for its three-door models. The revised names for the Mini Cooper Hardtop are now the Cooper C and Cooper S, with the initial name denoting the basic model, similar to the approach used in the entry-level Mini Countryman.

The entire lineup of three-door Mini Cooper Hardtop models in the US is exclusively equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The upgraded Cooper S model generates a potent 201 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque (a boost from its previous 189 hp). As a result, this compact car can swiftly accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds. More information on the power and performance specifications for the Cooper C’s 2.0-liter engine, along with details on the transmission, will be disclosed closer to its release date.

A notable detail is that the Mini Cooper C available in international markets features a compact 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine, with the ability to produce 154 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque.

In terms of design, the fifth-generation Mini Cooper takes on a more minimalist appearance compared to its electric counterparts, removing the signature vented octagonal grille. The upper intakes now feature a horizontal slot that holds BMW’s smallest radar sensor, which functions alongside 12 ultrasonic sensors for driver-assistance capabilities. The LED daytime running lights (DRLs) are configured in a horizontal position by default, but can be adjusted to three different settings: Classic, Favoured, or JCW. The taillights are now triangular and equipped with matrix LEDs, complete with an animated welcome/goodbye sequence.

The measurements of the 2025 Mini Cooper are 152.6 inches in length, 77.6 inches in width, and 56.4 inches in height. Its wheelbase is 98.2 inches, which is slightly shorter than its electric version. It should be noted that the gas-powered Cooper is longer and a touch wider, as it has larger overhangs.

The trim level chosen greatly affects the customization options available, such as a range of body paint selections, interior trims, and 17- to 18-inch aluminum wheel styles. Those who opt for the Favoured package will enjoy the unique Multitone Roof with the stunning Spray-Tech design, set to be released in July.

Within, the three-door version of the Mini Cooper follows in the footsteps of its electric counterparts by streamlining the interior. One notable change is the absence of a gear shifter on the center console. Instead, the gear selector has been integrated into a toggle bar that also houses key functions such as the parking brake, start/stop button, experience mode switch, and volume control. In addition, the center console now features a wireless charging pad.

Regrettably, the management of climate systems has been integrated into the 9.4-inch circular OLED infotainment screen known as the Mini Interaction Unit, utilizing the BMW Group’s Operating System 9. This advanced system provides details on speed and fuel efficiency.

“The new Cooper also has a redesigned steering wheel and a two-tone textile dashboard,” states the article. Along with these updates, the car also features a panoramic glass roof and 60:40 folding rear seats that can expand the luggage compartment from 8.9 to 34.4 cubic feet. Additionally, a Mini “Experience Modes” option is available, which aims to enhance the cabin ambiance through illuminated graphics projected onto the dashboard and variations in sound design.

Concerning the realm of technology, the 2025 Mini Cooper Hardtop three-door boasts a Safe Exit feature. With the added option of Mini Navigation, users can now enjoy a three-dimensional perspective and enhanced view of traffic conditions, as well as convenient digital payment choices for parking. Additionally, the Driving Assistant Plus package offers advanced assistance capabilities such as camera and radar-based features, like automatic speed and distance regulation.

In the latest developments from Mini, their brand-new Intelligent Personal Assistant (IPA) named Spike can now be activated simply by saying, “Hey Mini.” This groundbreaking feature allows for hands-free control of navigation, entertainment, and other essential vehicle functions. Additionally, the Mini Digital Key Plus feature turns your smartphone into a digital key through the use of the Mini app. This digital key can then be easily transferred to other users, including the ability to customize personal vehicle settings.

The 2025 model of the Mini Cooper S three-door is set to begin its production in the United States as soon as next month, with a price tag of $32,000. The Mini Cooper C will follow suit and begin production in July 2024, starting at a base price of $28,950. Additional costs for destination and handling are estimated at $995.

The upcoming release of the Cooper five-door and the high-performance JCW models is highly anticipated, with an expected arrival later this year.

  1. Thanks for this glorious article. One more thing to mention is that the majority of digital cameras come equipped with a zoom lens so that more or less of the scene to get included by way of ‘zooming’ in and out. All these changes in concentration length are generally reflected within the viewfinder and on big display screen right at the back of your camera.

  2. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
