The MINI Three-Door hatch has always been a popular choice among enthusiasts. The current model is better equipped with more features as compared to its predecessors. The vehicle is exclusively available with a petrol engine and has been introduced in the country via the CBU route. The company claims that the new model amplifies its emotional design, go-kart feel, and clever functionality.
The front view is expressive and is dominated by the new characteristic hexagonal radiator grille that further enhances the round hallmark MINI LED headlights. The new vertical air-intakes are integrated with the bodyworks for better aerodynamics. The fog lights are now integrated with the LED headlights, whereas, the LED side indicators are integrated into the redesigned side scuttles. The sides look fresh with striking new contours of wheel arch surrounds. The rear fog light has been integrated into the rear apron as a narrow LED unit.
Although the vehicle gets a familiar interior layout, for freshness the vehicle offers two new MINI Interior Surfaces Silver Chequered (sporty style in which the instrument panel surface and the elliptical ring in the door are available in a Chequered design) and MINI Interior Surfaces Aluminium (opposing diagonal lines represents a modern, visually impactful evolution of the classical herringbone design). An 8.8-inch colour touchscreen display, touch-sensitive favourite buttons, and Piano Black high-gloss surfaces are now standard features.
The MINI Three-Door is powered by a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine which generates 189bhp and 280Nm of torque between 1,350 – 4,600rpm. This engine comes mated to a seven-speed double-clutch Steptronic transmission. The Three-Door hatchback is capable of sprinting from 0-100kmph in 6.7 seconds.
