The 2025 Mini Cooper 4-Door has been unveiled, following the debut of its three-door counterpart last year. Initially introduced as an electric vehicle, the combustion engine variant made its appearance in February 2024. Now, the spotlight turns to the five-door version, offering enhanced practicality.

The new five-door Mini Cooper comes with two engine choices. The base model, Cooper C, is equipped with a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 154 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. The more powerful Cooper S features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, generating 201 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. These specifications mirror those of the three-door model, though the additional doors result in slightly slower acceleration. The base model accelerates from 0 to 62 mph (100 kph) in 8.0 seconds, while the Cooper S accomplishes the same in 6.8 seconds.

Significant changes are made beyond the B-pillar to incorporate the extra doors. The wheelbase has been extended by 2.8 inches, and the overall length of the body has increased by nearly 7 inches. While specific rear-seat legroom measurements aren’t provided, the cargo space has been expanded to 32.6 cubic feet with the rear seats folded, up from 28.2 cubic feet in the three-door model.

The five-door version retains the updated design introduced with the smaller Cooper, featuring smoother fascias and standard LED lights front and rear, which are seamlessly integrated into the body for a cleaner appearance. Four trim levels are available, with the top-tier JCW trim offering sporty enhancements like diffusers and black trim, although this isn’t the high-performance JCW model.

Inside, the new Mini Cooper 4-Door maintains the same minimalist design, highlighted by a 9.4-inch round central display. The Mini Experience Modes offer various lighting and display options, including the ability to display custom photos. The Parking Assistant Plus system, which includes four external cameras and 12 ultrasonic sensors, aids drivers in navigating tight spaces.

These features pertain to the European model, but it’s likely that the North American version will be similar. Further details, including pricing, are expected to be announced soon.
