MINI 5 Door Design
The MINI 5 Door is essentially a more practical version of the iconic MINI 3 Door hatchback, sporting the same instantly recognizable proportion and design cue such as the circular LED headlamps with integrated DRL, clamshell bonnet, large gaping front radiator grille, black plastic claddings around the wheel arches as well as the relatively short front and rear overhang.
The sportier Cooper S variant brings along a bolder front-end design featuring an air scoop on the bonnet, black honeycomb grille and side scuttle with S badges, aerodynamic air ducts flanking the lower air intake, a more aggressive lower bumper design with integrated air curtains, gloss black accents, Pedal Spoke wheels as well as the go-faster racing stripes. The centrally mounted twin-exhaust end pipes are finished in piano black, complementing the new design of the rear whose geometry has been widened to give it a wider and more athletic stance.
Blacked out pillars and the black roof option gives the MINI 5 Door that desirable two-tone appearance while the rear lights now feature a split Union Jack lighting signature. While the additional rear doors greatly improve accessibility to the rear, its relatively small size leaves much to be desired. The MINI 5 Door also makes do without the frameless window design seen on the 3 Door variant.
MINI 5 Door Dimension
Despite its name, the MINI has grown quite significantly since the inception of the original Mk I MINI back in 1959, and even more so for the MINI 5 Door. Based on the third generation MINI 3 Door, the 5-door variant is 160 mm longer and 11 mm taller. The 72 mm longer wheelbase offers improved rear occupant and cargo spaces. Tipping the scale at 1,345 kg, it is 50 kg heavier than the 2-door variant.
