2015 Mini Cooper Hardtop
For 2015 model year Mini Cooper launched a new, redesigned version of its 2-doors model. If you don’t know, 2015 Mini Cooper Hardtop is mow official name for 2-door version. Even it is redesigned model, we don’t se to much difference from a previous. However, Mini Cooper is that kind of car that if you change too much, you are missing the mark. The biggest change in new Mini is a size enlargement. New model are slightly bigger than previous. This gives much more room inside, which was maybe the biggest demerit of previous model.
As we said, main change in new 2015 Mini Cooper is interior. New model gives you much more room. The driver’s seat travel is now extra long, so it will be equally comfortable both for those who have “normal” height and those who are taller than an average man. Rear seat also has a decent space, both for headroom and legroom. We can say that new model has space just like extended Cooper Clubman, even it is called regular hardtop. Interior also includes better quality materials. There are also changes on control board. For example, the seat controls are now outboard, which means that power lock buttons and window controls are now moved to the doors.
2015 Mini Cooper specs information
The new Mini Cooper will most likely be powered with 1.5 liter 3-cylinder engine making 134 hp and 162 ft-lbs of torque. This powertrain will be in the base models. Second option is 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbo which gives 189 hp and 207 ft-lbs of torque.
The unique toggle switches remain low on that panel, but the keyless start/stop button is now larger and has a slightly different design. Also, dashboard is different. Speedometer and tachometer are now on the steering wheel line. Although centered-located speedometer and tachometer were well accepted, there are some practical reasons for this change. The main problem about previous-model dashboard was too much information on panel, so speedometer and tachometer were not so observable. The central console is now reserved for a large screen, which has an impressive color graphics and features various driving modes such as navigation system or some Mini Connected features.
There are also some exterior changes. They are minimal, but still noticeable. New 2015 Mini Cooper now has a larger grille, probably in order to bring it closer to the some classic look. There are also some other minor changes such as new a splitter-style chin spoiler for improved aerodynamics or a new rear lights. All in all, exterior is pretty much the same as previous model, but we get used to. Its release date is expected in mid 2014.
