This is the All-New MINI Five Door; Check it out in 179 Photos

For the first time in Mini’s history, the British premium brand will offer a five-door body style of its classic hatchback model. Aptly named the Mini 5 door, the new sub-compact car was introduced today before arriving in showrooms this fall.

While based on the third generation Mini 3 door that went on sale just a few months ago, the wheelbase on the five door variant has been expanded by 72mm (2.8 inches) to 2,567mm (101 inches) and the body has been lengthened by 161mm (6.3 inches) to 3,982mm or 4,005mm for the Cooper S and SD models. It’s also 11mm (0.4 inches) taller than the 3-door model.

Therefore, aside from being more practical than the 3-door version, the 5-door also offers more space inside, including 15mm (0.6 inches) more headroom and 61mm (2.4 inches) of extra width “at elbow height” (even though the overall width remains the same). There’s also 72mm(2.8 inches) more foot space for rear passengers, while the luggage compartment grows by 67 liters (+30 percent) for a total of 278 liters or 941 liters if you flip down the 60:40 split rear backrest.

Appearance wise, Mini’s designers attempted to integrate the extra pair of doors without ruining the 3-door model’s familiar looks. From these pictures, at least, the only issue stems from the small length of the rear doors compared to the front ones.

The engine and trim range comes directly from the three-door car, with the European range including an initial choice of four units: a 134hp/136PS 1.5-liter 3cyl petrol for the Cooper; a 189hp/192PS 2.0-liter 4cyl petrol for the Cooper S; a 114hp/116PS 1.5-liter 3cyl diesel for the Cooper D and a 168hp/170PS 2.0-liter 4cyl diesel for the Cooper SD.

We’re still waiting for details on the North American model.
