New Mini Cooper S Launch in India: Bookings, Price, and Features

The new Mini Cooper S is set to hit the Indian market with a bang, boasting upgrades in both power and design. The 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine has been given a boost, now delivering 204hp and 300Nm of torque, making it more formidable than its predecessor.

Customers can now book the 2024 Mini Cooper S on the company’s official website by paying Rs 1 lakh as the token amount, with the launch expected in the coming weeks. One of the key highlights of the new Cooper S is its industry-first circular touchscreen infotainment system, adding a touch of modernity to the iconic Mini design.

Visually, the new Cooper S retains the classic Mini aesthetics while introducing some angular elements for a fresh look. The front grille is less curvy, the headlamps feature a new LED pattern, and the tail-lamps now sport arrowhead LED elements connected by a sleek black trim showcasing the car’s name.

Inside the cabin, the minimalistic approach is maintained, but with a larger 9.45-inch round touchscreen infotainment system, a new steering wheel design with the Mini emblem, and a revamped dashboard that eliminates the need for a separate instrument cluster. The gear selector has been moved to a new panel below the screen, along with other essential controls.

The new Mini Cooper S is priced at Rs 42.70 lakh for the outgoing model, with expectations of a slight increase for the new version. Initially launching with a petrol powertrain, the next-gen all-electric Cooper EV is set to be introduced later this year, offering a unique alternative in the market.

While the Cooper S doesn’t have direct rivals, it is poised to challenge entry-level luxury cars and SUVs like the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine, Audi Q3, and BMW 2 Series. Exciting times lie ahead for Mini enthusiasts, with the new Cooper S promising a blend of performance, style, and technology in one irresistible package.
