2015 MINI Cooper S

2015 MINI Cooper S Five-Door: The third generation of the modern MINI Cooper is set for a reveal next week and will eventually spawn a new five-door variant that is expected to reach showrooms in late 2014, making it a 2015 model. These are our latest spy shots of a prototype for this more family friendly MINI. On initial glance the prototype looks similar to previous mules for the regular MINI Cooper three-door, but it clearly features four doors and what looks to be a conventional rear hatch--making this a five-door. Center-mounted exhaust tips also confirm that this is the slightly sportier Cooper S version of the new MINI five-door.

To accommodate the extra doors, MINI’s designers have stretched the wheelbase. It also appears they’ve raised the height of the roof in order to maximize interior space. We’ve previously reported on the five-door MINI Cooper, which is likely to replace the suicide-door-equipped Clubman. It’s not clear whether this model will pick up the Clubman name or be called something entirely else. MINI has confirmed that its new Cooper will launch with a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine delivering approximately 134 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque (169 pound-feet with overboost function) in the base model, while a 2.0-liter four-cylinder will offer 189 horsepower and 206 pound-feet of torque (221 pound-feet with overboost) in the Cooper S.
