WOODCLIFF LAKE, New Jersey — The new 2015 Mini Cooper Hardtop Four-Door, a five-door hatchback that goes on sale in January, will start at $22,300, including an $850 destination charge, Mini USA said.

The price reflects a $1,000 premium over the Mini Hardtop Two-Door.

The new model, the second variant of the new Mini Cooper Hardtop, "can be seen at U.S. dealerships at the end of this year," Mini USA said.

The five-passenger Mini Cooper Hardtop Four-Door puts the emphasis on accessibility and convenience, according to the company. The wheelbase is expanded by 2.9 inches and the body lengthened by 6.3 inches compared to the 2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop.

Buyers will get a choice of two engines with the new model. They are a 134-horsepower 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine or a 189-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine in the Mini Cooper S Hardtop Four-Door.

A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while a six-speed Steptronic automatic transmission is optional on all versions.

Optional driver assistance systems include a Mini head-up display and the Driving Assistant system that includes a road sign detection function that displays speed limits.

Standard features include power exterior mirrors, dual-zone climate control and door sill cover strips.

Key competitors to the 2015 Mini Cooper Hardtop Four-Door include the Honda Fit, Kia Rio Five-Door and Volkswagen GTI.

Edmunds says: A tantalizing new choice for hatchback shoppers and one that retains Mini's funky retro vibe.

Comments

  • I LOVE my Cooper S 4 door! Except for the one year I drove a Civic Si, which I quickly traded in for another Mini the following year, I have been driving a Mini since 2004. With my husband driving a Corvette Grand Sport and Mustang and me with my 2 door Mini, we needed a more practical car for everyday life. (Dog, friends/family, DIY projects.) I tested the Paceman and Countryman and both of those models would have been a big compromise as a Mini driver. Not once since purchasing the 4 door S have I felt like I compromised. It is even more fun than my older 2dr hardtop I traded in. It handles better than ever, great gas mileage, sophisticated but not stuffy, solid, fast, safe, practical, beautiful inside and out, techy, intuitive, responsive and like Mini’s always have in the past it still handles perfectly in snow. My husband, a diehard Mustang guy, was so impressed with the new Mini Hardtops that he bought a 2015 2door S Hardtop when I was filling out the paperwork for mine at the dealership. Yes, it is THAT good. (you know how Mustang guys feel about their cars) The folks who may not like the new Mini are those who have a large family who need the two backseats for people plus ample storage at the same time. The only thing I worry about as an owner is my perfect driving record – this car is exhilarating, fun and fast. The faster I go the bigger my smile! If you have not driven a new Mini, you have to take one out and see for yourself.
