Introduced in 2015, the Mini Cooper 5-door is exactly what it sounds like: a slightly more practical version of the Mini hatchback with four doors for people and a slightly longer wheelbase.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
New for 2021, Mini has brought back the Cooper’s six-speed manual transmission after last year’s decision to drop it and make an automatic the only gearbox.
Mini offers the Cooper 5-door in base and S trim levels. Base models are powered by a 1.5L turbocharged three-cylinder engine, and S gets a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder. Both engines come standard with a six-speed manual transmission; a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is optional in both trims.
The Mini Cooper and Cooper S 5-door start with 16-inch wheels, leatherette upholstery, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, a split-folding rear seat, engine auto stop/start, panoramic sunroof, heated front seats, passive keyless entry, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and dual-zone automatic A/C.
Premier trim adds navigation with real-time traffic info, remote services, and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.
Premier Plus brings 17-inch wheels, LED fog lights, LED headlights with cornering function, wireless smartphone charging, an 8.8-inch infotainment display, and a digital gauge cluster.
Among the Cooper 5-door’s options are a heated windshield, a driving assistance package, and sport seats.
Mini’s fuel consumption estimates for the Cooper 5-door are 8.8/6.4 L/100 km (city/highway) with the manual transmission, and 8.4/6.5 with the automatic. The more powerful Cooper S is rated at 10.2/7.1 L/100 km (city/highway) in stickshift form, and 8.9/6.6 with the automatic.
