Mini recently revealed the latest addition to their lineup, the five-door version of the new Cooper hatchback. This car marks the end of an era for Mini, as it will be the final model offered with only petrol combustion powertrains.

Similar to the three-door version, the five-door Cooper will come in two petrol options. The base model, Cooper C, is equipped with a turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine that delivers 152bhp and 170lb ft of torque. It can accelerate from 0-62mph in just 8.0 seconds. The overall length of the five-door Cooper is 4036mm, making it 160mm longer than the three-door variant and 31mm longer than the previous five-door model.

On the other hand, the Cooper S boasts a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 201bhp and 221lb ft of torque. This enables the Cooper S to go from 0-62mph in 6.8 seconds, slightly slower than the three-door Cooper S by 0.3 seconds. Mini has decided to offer an automatic gearbox for the new Cooper, discontinuing the manual transmission option that was available last year.

Unlike the three-door Cooper, the five-door model will not have a battery-electric powertrain option. The pricing for the new five-door Cooper starts at £24,050, while the Cooper S starts at £28,450. Customers in the UK can expect deliveries to start in August.

With the release of this final petrol combustion car from Mini, it is evident that the automotive industry is transitioning towards more sustainable and eco-friendly options. While Mini has not announced any plans for a fully electric version of the five-door Cooper, it will be interesting to see how they adapt to the changing landscape of the car market in the future. In the meantime, fans of the brand can enjoy the performance and style of the new five-door Cooper with its powerful petrol engines and sleek design.
