It’s all about the drive. The MINI 3-door Hatch is powered by a brand new Twin Power Turbo engine that’s faster and even more fuel-efficient than ever. Double whammy. We’ve also pumped up the go-kart handling by widening the track width, stiffening the suspension and keeping the centre of gravity low. Hugging corners and zooming down straights is what it’s all about.
Switch up your drive with MINI Driving Modes that can adapt performance to match your mood. Just twist the ring around the gearshift gate to alter your MINI’s handling and responsiveness. Relaxed Sunday afternoon? Go GREEN for a softer experience, optimised for fuel efficiency. Need your pulse quickened? Jump into SPORT with ultra-responsive steering, acceleration and suspension.
Advanced braking technology keeps you in complete control. Latest-generation anti-lock brakes allow you to stop quickly on slippery roads and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) distributes braking force between wheels to suit the driving conditions. Cornering Brake Control (CBC) improves stability on cornering at speed, while Brake Assist speeds up the process, minimising the braking distance.
With MINI’s optional Runflat tyres, a puncture won’t result in a blowout. Runflat technology allows you to keep driving on a flat tyre at speeds of up to 50 mph. The reinforced side walls are made of a heat-resistant rubber, while special rim geometry stops the pressure-less tyre from slipping off, even on bends. So you’ll be able to keep on driving to a place where you can change the tyre safely.
If disaster strikes, the MINI puts an instant wall of protection around you. Six airbags in the front and back deploy instantly, along with side curtain airbags. The seat belt tensioners lock you tightly in place, keeping you and your passengers clear from the dashboard and front seats.
An impressive radiator grille with hexagonal design and seamless chrome frame is flanked by trademark wide-set circular headlights. Chrome surrounds add a striking edge and finish off the classic face.
Glowing softly with red LEDs, the large Start button signals the beginning of a new adventure. Feel your MINI come alive with one small touch: the engine revs and you're ready to go.
