The genes of the MINI Cooper Coupé are programmed for just one aim: sporty driving. As a genuine two-seater, it is therefore the lightest of the entire MINI range.
Thanks to the low unladen weight and the powerful engine with 88 kW (120 hp), the MINI Coupé accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in only 10.3 seconds.
Present from the word go: that unique go-kart feeling that continues up to the top speed of 198 km/h. Its low centre of gravity, agile chassis and high-torque engine turn it into an adventurer searching for narrow streets and tight curves.
But there’s no stopping it on fast stretches either, because it can overtake swiftly without the effort of shifting down. Proper grip comes from the rear spoiler which extends electrically above 80 km/h and reduces lift.
The driver can unleash this huge amount of power while still keeping the fuel consumption very modest. Thanks to MINIMALISM, the average standard consumption is just 5,4 l/100 km. The following technologies help to save fuel. The Auto Start Stop function automatically switches off the engine when the car is stopped and waiting at traffic lights. Brake Energy Regeneration means that the alternator charges up the battery if the driver’s foot is not on the accelerator. Shift Point Display shows the best moment to change gear for maximum economy.
This approach to driving fun also means keeping the fuel gauge needle over to the right for as long as possible.
