Paris Live – 2014 Mini 5-door
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Available with four engine options in petrol and diesel.
Like the normal Mini, the 5-door too is based on the front wheel drive UKL platform. However, engineers have extended the wheelbase by 72 mm, correspondingly increasing rear legroom by 72 mm. The 5-door, in comparison to the 3-door, is longer by 161 mm, taller by 11 mm and has a boot that is larger by 67 liters.
The 5-door Mini can be had with four engine options – two petrol and two diesel. The base petrol engine is a 1.5-liter three-cylinder making 136 bhp while the more powerful 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol makes 192 bhp.
The diesel range comprises the 1.5-liter three-cylinder producing 116 bhp and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 170 bhp. The engines can be had with 6-speed manual or automatic transmissions.
The new Mini (3-door) is expected to launch in India by the end of this year. The 5-door model could possibly follow as well.
