It comes mated to a 6-speed automatic Steptronic gearbox.
At the launch, Philipp von Sahr, President BMW Group India said, Minis have always have a knack for speed and agility and the new Mini Cooper S takes that passion even further. The powerful Mini TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine takes the classic Mini go-kart feeling to new heights as it revels in the mindblowing force of increased power and acceleration. The new Mini Cooper S is furiously fun and ready to dominate the Indian streets like never before.”
On the outside the 3-Door Mini Cooper S looks similar to its diesel sibling except for a new grille and bumper up front and 10-spoke alloy wheels. The insides too continue to have the retro-Mini look and are once again similar to the diesel variant.
Mini has brought the Cooper S to India via the CBU route which has had a direct effect on the price too. Launched at a prices of Rs 34.65 lakh (all-India ex-showroom), it also packs a lot more features than its diesel variant.
