Mini Hardtop introduces four-door model

The 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop  4-Door sells for about $26,000.
The Mini Hardtop four-door’s luggage compartment has a volume of 13.1 cubic feet

The stylish Mini has expanded its model range with the addition of an entirely new body variant, the Mini Hardtop four-door.

The iconic exterior design of the Mini is authentically transferred to the specific proportions of the new four-door body. The wheelbase is expanded by 2.9 inches and the body lengthened by 6.3 inches as compared to the Mini Hardtop two-door. Additionally, the luggage compartment space is 0.5 cubic feet larger (versus the 2 door) in the new Mini Hardtop with a total of 13.1 cubic feet.

Mini Engine

The Mini Hardtop four-door offers two engines with Mini TwinPower Turbo Technology to choose from: a four-cylinder engine in the Mini Cooper S Hardtop four-door, which produces 189 horsepower, and a three-cylinder engine with an output of 134 horsepower powers the Mini Cooper Hardtop four-door. Fuel economy ratings for the 3-cylinder engine are 41 mpg on the highway, 29 mpg in the city and 34 mpg combined.

Mini Design

Like all Mini models, the new Mini Hardtop four-door has an unmistakable appearance. This is due to the car’s proportions as well as brand styling. Traditional design features include the hexagonal contour of the radiator grill, side scuttles and the black periphery around the bottom edge of the body.

In the Mini Cooper Hardtop four-door model, the ribs of the radiator grill and the tailgate handle are finished in white aluminum. The bumper trim integrated in the radiator grill is finished in high-gloss black, while the exhaust tailpipe has a chrome cover. 

The MINI Cooper S Hardtop four-door model draws its distinctive flair from such features as a radiator grill with honeycomb pattern, a bumper trim in high-gloss black, an additional opening in the bonnet and a separate rear apron with exhaust tailpipes arranged at the center. This model variant also bears a red “S” logo with a chrome border, not only on the side scuttle elements but also on the chrome bar of the radiator grill.

For customization of the exterior and interior in hallmark brand style, options also include various decorative trim styles for roof and exterior mirrors, bonnet stripes, seat upholsteries, interior surfaces and color lines.
