2024 MINI Cooper S arrives: RM280K estimated

SERDANG: The 2024 MINI Cooper S has an estimated retail pricing of RM280,000 with SST (on the road, without insurance).

With the new MINI Cooper S, refined minimalism with ergonomic details defines the cabin and accentuates the centrepiece - the first in automotive, all-digital circular MINI OLED Display.

Flanking the grille, the adaptive LED headlights are functionally equipped with high-beam assistant.

Emphasising the distinctive character of the New MINI Cooper S are three adjustable light signatures on the daytime running light elements and triangular taillights, as well as a specially orchestrated welcome and goodbye animation to start and end all light modes.

From the side view, the 18-inch Slide Spoke 2-tone light alloy wheels complements the profile of the New MINI Cooper S, while MINI logo projections on both driver and passenger side are part of the welcome light show.

From the rear, the New MINI Cooper S is recognisable by its triangular LED rear lights and a horizontal black handle dividing the rear section.

Adding another point for individuality are the contracting roof and mirror caps, in white.

Engaging powertrain built for iconic go-kart driving

The chassis of the New MINI Cooper S is built upon the success of its predecessor, featuring a sophisticated design that makes for exceptional driving dynamics.

Spirited handling was the design goal of its suspension and damping system, with high preloaded stabilisers included to generate the familiar MINI go-kart feeling and optimised body responses around fast corners.

Complementing that is the greater steering precision, thanks to the Servotronic steering, enabling high cornering speeds an authentic feel with every steer.

An exceptional driving experience awaits in any situation, as the steering and driving stability control systems can be precisely set up for comfort or sporty driving, while a flick of the “Experiences” toggle switch activates the various MINI Experience Modes.

Thanks to the latest MINI TwinPower Turbo technology, the New MINI Cooper S efficiently delivers up to 204 hp and 300 Nm of torque, allowing for a 0 – 100 km/h sprint in 6.6 seconds, up to a top speed of 242 km/h.

The power is transmitted from its 2.0-litre engine via a 7-speed double-clutch automatic Steptronic transmission, which excels at particularly dynamic yet smooth gear changes.

Open clutches when the vehicle is stationary combined with optimised setting-off behaviour further improves the gear changing experience and driving comfort.
