Sometimes it takes three to tango. You better ask MINI. It has launched three variants of the MINI Cooper hatch. First up is the all-new 3-door Hatch, then it’s the Convertible version and finally the pocket-rocket John Cooper Works edition. The prices start from Rs 38 lakh for the 3-door Hatch and go all the way up to Rs 45.5 lakh for the John Cooper Works variant.
Powering the Mini Cooper 3-door hatches is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine. But in the 3-door Hatch and the Convertible variant, the engine is tuned to produce 189 bhp and 28.55 kgm of peak torque. As for the John Cooper Work variant, it belts out 228 bhp and 32.62 kgm of torque. This allows the JCW to sprint from 0-100 kph in 6.1 seconds with the help of its 8-speed auto ‘box. While the other two are paired to a 7-speed DCT. That still enables the Mini 3-door Hatch to produce a sprint time of 6.7 seconds. And the Convertible is only a second slower than the JCW.
On the features front, both get the latest equipment and tech. The Mini JCW comes with 18-inch wheels, while the other two have 17-inchers on them. Inside, it features an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, ambient lighting as optional, a 5-inch digital instrument display that moves with the steering column, and a Head-up display.
