The all-new 2014 MINI Cooper S aims to be the leader in the premium small car segment. To that extent, MINI has reworked the NEW Cooper S inside and out, featuring a refreshed design, a new platform and a brand new engine. While the hot hatch is expected to reach our shores later this year, our friends in Australia at motoring.com.au, have already got their hands on the new Cooper S and shared their review on the car with us. Cooper S In A Nutshell Replacing the 1.6-litre engine on its predecessor’s, the new MINI Cooper S is now powered by an all-new 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with MINI TwinPower Turbo technology that produces 189hp and 280Nm of torque from 1,250rpm – 300Nm with the aid of an overboost. When coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission, the Cooper S hatch is capable of dashing from standstill to 100km/h in 6.7 seconds, before peaking to a top speed of 233km/h. After listening to customer’s feedback on the previous Cooper S, MINI has revised its interior to focus more on practicality. As a result, the speedometer, infotainment system and window control have been repositioned to make the cockpit more user-friendly. Even the quality of the seats has been improved to offer good support and manual adjustability.
