Mini launched the new Cooper S at an event in Pune today. The Mini Cooper S is priced at INR 34,65,000 and will be available at all Mini showrooms from today.
The car is powered by a new 4-cylinder TwinPower Turbo Petrol which belts out 280 Nm of torque and 189 hp of power. According to Mini, the engine gives “unadulterated driving thrill” as it propels to 233km/h. 0-100 kmph takes on 6.7 secs.
Speaking at the launch, Mr. Philipp von Sahr said “MINI never stops to surprise you. Just when you thought we could not possibly make the new MINI any more exciting, we did exactly that. MINIs have always had a knack for speed and agility and the new MINI Cooper S takes that passion even further. The powerful MINI TwinPower Turbo four cylinder engine takes the classic MINI go-kart feeling to new heights as it revels in the mind-blowing force of increased power and acceleration”. He further added “The new MINI Cooper S is furiously fun and ready to dominate the Indian streets like never before.” Mini has chosen to take the CBU route for the car.
