The new MINI Cooper S features an evolutionary design refinement, a wide selection of driver assistance systems usually found in higher vehicle segments, and a new 2.0-liter turbo engine.

Its design signals the more mature character, reflected in a significant optimization of such aspects as space, safety, fittings, materials and finish quality as well as sportiness and ride comfort. A new engine generation increases driving fun and efficiency, and there is a wider selection of innovative driver assistance systems as well as MINI Connected infotainment facilities. LED headlamps, the MINI Head-Up Display, Emergency Call and the MINI Connected XL Journey Mate with Real Time Traffic Information are the highlights of the equipment program, further underscoring the premium character of the new MINI.

An entirely newly developed power unit featuring MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology is available to choose from at the market launch of the new MINI Cooper S in spring 2014. The 4-cylinder petrol engine mobilizes 189 hp (141 kW). Another new feature: the standard 6-speed manual transmission, along with a 6-speed automatic transmission that is optionally available.

Classic MINI proportions, the characteristic three-way separation of body corpus, all-round greenhouse and roof together with a new take on hallmark design features define the exterior of the new model, which has grown by some 4 inches (ten centimeters) in length. Its interior offers extended spatial comfort on all four seats as well as a luggage compartment volume expanded by 51 liters to a total of 211 liters.

A new display and operating concept combines the typical brand-style look and feel of the cockpit with optimized functionality. Road speed and engine speed along with other key driving-related information is shown in the newly designed instrument cluster on the steering column. The characteristic central instrument with an optional color display of up to 8.8 inches in size provides feedback on operations performed using the MINI Controller in the center console as well as giving visual feedback on driving condition and on numerous functions activated by the driver.

The range of optional driver assistance systems has been significantly expanded. For the first time there is an extendible Head-Up Display above the steering column available for the new MINI, a Driving Assistant system including camera-based active cruise control, collision and pedestrian warning, high beam assistant and road sign detection, and also a parking assistant and a rear view camera.

Unique within the competitive environment, the MINI in-car infotainment program likewise moves into a whole new dimension. As the first car in its segment the new MINI can be fitted with a SIM card which is permanently installed in the car. This means that Emergency Call with automatic detection of vehicle location and accident severity is available, as well as MINI Teleservices. Functions which can be integrated in the vehicle via apps in the areas of social networks and infotainment are now available for both the Apple iPhone and for smartphones using the operating system Android.
