The new Mini Cooper S launched in India
March 24, 2015: The new Mini Cooper S was recently launched in India at a driving event held at Aamby Valley, Pune. The new Mini Cooper S with increased power and enhanced driving thrills has the new Mini TwinPower Turbo engine, offering an entirely new understanding of driving dynamics.
The new MINI TwinPower Turbo engines make the new MINI faster and lighter on fuel. Bustling beneath the bonnet of the new MINI Cooper S is the mighty 4-cylinder MINI TwinPower Turbo petrol engine delivering 280 Nm torque. Developed from scratch, it injects the MINI Cooper S with 141 kW / 189 hp of unadulterated driving thrill. The MINI Cooper S is quick and only needs 6.7 seconds to hit 100 km/hr and its top speed is 233 km/h.
The new MINI Cooper S is available in Pepper White and Volcano Orange as non-metallic paintwork and in the following nine metallic paintworks: Moonwalk Grey, Blazing Red, Lapisluxury Blue, British Racing Green, Iced Chocolate, Thunder Grey, Deep Blue, White Silver and Midnight Black.
The car has a completely redesigned front grille which boasts big air intakes and a black honeycomb-patterned grid specific to the Cooper S. On the back, the air outlet housing two fog lights is wrapped around the double exhaust tailpipes. Lighting the way are newly designed headlights and rear lights with full-LED headlights available as an option. For the side indicators, new graphics and a new insert play a big role in giving the new MINI Cooper S it’s more mature look.
Step in and feast your eyes on the revamped dashboard. All driving related displays such as the speedometer and rev counter are placed behind the steering wheel, directly in the field of vision. The centre speedometer has been replaced by the all-new MINI Central Display which shows car information and entertainment. Increased interior space and foldable rear backrest with adjustable tilt angle make for further advancements in the area of functionality.
With the new MINI Driving Modes you can change the car’s driving characteristics, interior lighting and engine sound to match your mood. You can switch to GREEN mode to save on fuel or dial it up to SPORT mode to test the speed and agility. If you want the best of both worlds, just leave it on MID mode and the vehicle will be on its best-balanced behavior.
The new MINI Central Display is a pulsating hub of infotainment, and is also optionally available in the 6.5 inch display or the whopping 8.8 inch widescreen version. When hooked up to your smartphone with the relevant apps, MINI Connected provides an endless stream of digital information and entertainment. The car comes with a dazzling array of high-tech options. Choose from features like MINI Navigation System Professional, MINI Connected XL, Wired package, MINI Head-up Display, Harman Kardon hi-fi system and LED headlights with cornering function.
