MINI 3 Door, 5 Door and Convertible Models Updated For 2021

MINI Malaysia updates the Cooper S Hatch 3 Door and 5 Door Models.

The entire MINI range was recently given a facelift globally and today MINI Malaysia has brought that range in. This includes the MINI Cooper S 3 Door Hatch, MINI Cooper S 5 Door Hatch, MINI Convertible and MINI Electric. In this article, we’ll be covering the new Mini Cooper S Hatch and Cooper S Convertible models, as they’re essentially the same under the hood and based on a similar chassis.

All three of these models are powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder TwinPower Turbo petrol engine producing 192 horsepower and 280Nm of torque. The engine sends power to the front wheels via a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. Although power figures are identical, the variants have performance differences due to weight and aerodynamic differences.
