[2013 LA AUTO SHOW] 2015 MINI Cooper Family

The new MINI Cooper was unveiled earlier this week at the 2013 LA Auto Show; with new features and the same old MINI Face, I guess its something that runs in the family; the 2015 MINI Cooper will launch with 3 Version: MINI Cooper S; MINI Cooper D; and the Original MINI Cooper.

MINI Cooper S will launch with a 4-Cylinder turbocharged engine with MINI TwinPower technology;  producing a 192 horsepower at 4700-6000RPM and at 0 to 60 in under 7.0 seconds and hitting a top speed of 146MPH.

MINI Cooper will launch with a 3-Cylinder diesel Turbocharged engine with 136 Horsepower at 4500-6000 RPM with a 0 to 60 in 7.9 Seconds and a top speed of 130MPH.

MINI Cooper D will also launch with a 3-Cylinder Turbocharged engine which push out 116 Horsepower at 4000RPM with a 0 to 60 time of 9.2 seconds, and that engine has a top speed of 127MPH.

The 3 engines will be link to MINI new Driving Models.

The new MINI Driving Modes allow an individual set-up involving not just the characteristic curve of the accelerator and steering but also engine acoustics, and in the MINI Cooper S – where the relevant features are fitted – ambient lighting, the shift times of the automatic transmission and the characteristics of Dynamic Damper Control, the latter system being optionally available for the first time. The modes SPORT and GREEN can be activated in addition to the standard MID mode. In conjunction with an automatic transmission, the efficiency-oriented GREEN mode also features a coasting function with decoupled drivetrain.

MINI Cooper S Side Profile

The new Hardtop MINI Cooper exterior are just like pass MINI Coopers with no eye poping design changes, it maybe a good look for pass customers to returned to the brand:

The body of the new MINI is 3 821 millimetres long (MINI Cooper S:

3 850 millimetres), 1 727 millimetres wide and 1 414 millimetres high. This makes it 98 millimetres longer, 44 millimetres wider and 7 millimetres higher than its predecessor. The wheelbase has been extended by 28 millimetres to 2 495 millimetres, while the track width has been enlarged at the front by 42 millimetres and at the rear by 34 millimetres to a total of 1 501 millimetres in each case (MINI Cooper S: 1 485 millimetres). Cornering agility and ride comfort benefit from these new dimensions as do the amount of space available to occupants and the luggage compartment volume. The extended adjustment range of the front seats, a seat surface lengthened by 23 millimetres and a perceptible increase in shoulder room provide more foot space and freedom of movement as well as optimised entry comfort for rear passengers. Luggage compartment volume has been increased by 51 litres to 211 litres.

MINI Cooper S Honeycomb Grille

The MINI Cooper S draws its model-specific sporty flair from such features as a radiator grille with honeycomb pattern, an additional opening in the bonnet, brake air ducts integrated in the lower air inlets and a separate rear apron with exhaust tailpipes arranged at the center. In addition to the side scuttle elements, the radiator grille of this model variant now also bears an “S” logo with chrome surround.

The new MINI comes with many new feature such as a new interesting Heads-Up-Display along with a new sound system as well as the new engines. The intrior is a place i can see myself relax and take long drives; The center has a new 8.8inch 4 line TFT Display panel; which will display such thing as heat/air conditioning function; navigation, infotainment and communication functions. MINI Connected Services will have new special design graphics all will be controlled by voice or MINI new controller on the center console.

MINI Cooper Interior

MINI Cooper Interior

Available for the first time in a model of the British brand. New features include the MINI Head-Up-Display which shows information relevant to the driver on an extendible monitor in the upper section of the dashboard between the windscreen and steering wheel. The MINI Head-Up Display promotes concentration on the road by displaying information directly in the driver’s line of sight. It can then be read quickly and conveniently without averting one’s eyes from the road. The information that can be shown in the MINI Head-Up Display includes speed in figures, navigation directions in the form of arrow graphics and junction sketches, visual signals for collision warning, display symbols generated by Speed Limit Info and No Passing Info, Check Control messages and entertainment program details such as radio channels and track titles. The graphics on the high-resolution screen are clearly visible in all light conditions.

The innovative display and operating concept is supported by a lighting design in the area of the central instrument which is unique to MINI. LED units around the outer edge of the circular instrument – optionally available in six colours – can respond to the current situation on the road and to specific operating steps, according to driver preference. For example, the hand movements of the road speed and engine speed display in the instrument cluster are underpinned by parallel light impulses at the edge of the central instrument. When Park Distance Control is activated, the remaining distance to obstacles is shown by means of a ring of light which is illuminated in green, yellow or red – supplementing the graphic display. A change in the desired interior temperature is confirmed by LED units which light up in blue or red. Route guidance information provided by the navigation system is also visually supported by the illuminated ring: the closer the car gets to the turn-off point, the smaller the lit-up area at the edge of the central instrument.

The 2015 MINI Cooper is a winner in my book i always love the MINI brand they also sold well and i think the 2015 MINI Cooper will sell as well. the new interior and head up display unique display will draw in customers even tho with MINI reliability it might send some running. The fact that the car drop weight put in lots of new technology; it will certainly do well with the ladies in my book.
