You can't tell the Minis without a program! Unless you're a devoted Miniphile, chances are a Mini is just a Mini, but in fact, there are now multiple Mini models in eight different body configurations.
It's the first time in the history of the brand that the hatchback has been offered with four doors. In addition to the added utility of two more doors, the 4-Door is slightly bigger and roomier than the 2-door.
Nominally, there are now three rear seats, rear headroom has been increased by 15 mm, shoulder room by 161 mm and legroom by 72 mm, compared to the 2-door.
Power will come from a 134-horsepower, 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine in the Cooper trim level or a 189-horsepower four-cylinder in the Cooper S. Both engines are turbocharged and both can be coupled to six-speed manual or automatic transmissions.
According to the company, Mini's typical go-kart feeling is still part of the package.
