Mini is offering the upcoming Cooper S in five colour schemes: Ocean Wave Green, Sunny Side Yellow, British Racing Green, Chill Red II, and Blazing Blue.

Interiors

The interior of the 2024 Mini Cooper is brand new and minimalist while maintaining its iconic circular theme, with a 9.4-inch round OLED touchscreen as the centrepiece. Instead of a traditional instrument cluster, all of the car information is displayed on this central screen.

The parking brake, gear selector, start/stop key, experience mode toggle, and volume control are neatly arranged in a toggle bar unit on the centre console beneath it. Where the gear lever would normally be, there is now a wireless charging tray. A panoramic glass roof makes the cabin airier, and the rear seats fold down in a 60:40 split to increase trunk space from 210 to 725 litres.

On the safety front, the new Mini Cooper S gets six airbags, ABS with brake assist, level-1 advanced driver’s assistance system (ADAS), traction control, dynamic stability control, and an electronic parking brake.

Price and Rivals

Prices for the 2024 Mini Cooper have not been announced yet. However, the current Mini Cooper S three-door range starts at Rs 42.7 lakh (ex-showroom) and considering the added tech and features, it will command a notable premium. It doesn’t have any direct rivals but can be considered an alternative to the likes of the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA and Audi Q3.
